The birthplace of Friar Junípero Serra, located on the island of Majorca, there are several monuments to visit. Its old town has been declared Property of Cultural Interest.

Petra is just 43 kilometres from the city of Palma. The Church of Saint Peter, the Convent of San Bernardino, and the Sanctuary for the Bonany Virgen are some of the most important points in the municipality. The first is a gothic set constructed between the 16th and the 17th century. The convent is where Friar Junípero first went to school, while the origins of the sanctuary date to the early 17th century. Of course, there are also areas linked to the famous missionary. The Friar Junípero Serra Museum exhibit allows you to learn about his life and work. In order to see the house where he was born, you must go to the neighborhood of Barracar, the oldest one in the town. Both stories show a country home that was typical for the 16th and 17th century. A festival is held in his honour on the third Sunday of September, with activities like floral offerings and float parades.
