Places of interest in La Mola

Here is a list of the best places to visit in the La Mola and surrounding area that will leave you with very good memories of Formentera:

  1. Pilar de la Mola: A very charming village where peace and quiet prevail, since it is one the most isolated urban centers of the island (except during the summer months when the market brings a busy life to it). Located in the highest part of the island it is built around both sides of the main road, at the limit of the village you find the 18th century church.
  2. Molí Vell: A very curious and essential architectural element in Formentera, it speaks of peasant life on the island with agriculture being the  main means of subsistence and wheat the basic food of the population. It is one of the seven windmills that used to be working in the past.
  3. La Mola Lighthouse:  This lighthouse sits on the edge of the cliff, near the highest vantage point on the island. Its spectacular views can be enjoyed both at sunrise and at sunsets and its cultural space holds exhibitions and different cultural events.
  4. La Mola viewpoint: A mandatory stop, from there you can appreciate almost the entire island’s extension and enjoy the spectacular landscapes of both the north and south coasts from this point to the Port de la Savina.
  5. La Mola craft market: From May to October on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons in Pilar de la Mola, artisans and artists share their crafts and visitors can enjoy the good vibes and take home a unique handmade souvenir.
