The estate that La Granja de Esporles now occupies, was already very highly valued by the Romans because of the great flow of the spring, and even today it features a magnificent thirty-foot high natural waterfall. It was also of great interest to the Arabs who ruled the island from the 10th to the 13th centuries.
With the Christian conquest of 1229, the estate started its new life as a feudal possessió until, in 1239, it was ceded to the Cistercian monks, who administered it for 200 years until its ownership passed to Don Mateo Vidal. For another 200 years this family occupied it until it passed to the Fortuny family. The current owner is the Seguí family.
La Granja de Esporles is a mixture of stately and rustic styles, as it was used as a stately home but also as a farm estate (a possessió) with over a hundred crafts within its boundaries. This combination of the stately and agricultural worlds gives La Granja de Esporles a unique charm.
