Part of the Galatzó finca in Calvia.

25-10-2017Ajuntament de Calvia

Calvia is to receive funding from this year's tourist tax for three projects. Worth almost four million euros (some 6.25% of all the tax revenue to be spent), these are projects for the Galatzó finca and the archaeological site of Puig de sa Morisca in Santa Ponsa.

A refuge for hikers is to be created at the finca. It will involve the redevelopment of the old pig pens and be able to accommodate up to 52 people. This will cost 1.4 million euros. Also at the finca there will be 785,000 euros spent on the water system to assist agricultural activity and the general environment, all - it is stressed - with the aim of preserving the cultural landscape of the estate. Repairs will be made to the channelling and to the mills.

At the Puig de sa Morisca a museum costing 1.8 million euros is to be built. Calvia town hall believes that this museum in the Puig archaeological park will go towards increasing tourism potential. The park includes a talayot structure from the late second millennium BC.

Thought the tax was to be used to improve the Island for the tourists who pay it. We were told it was to improve roads, walkways, water etc. Not to create new specialist buildings which will be difficult to maintain

Nice to read that the millions collected will be used to improve things for those who paid them. In Palma Nova it would be nice to have some pavements, scheduled water drainage maintence, bus stops that are not on solid white lines, and push-buttons on zebra crossings if there's any money left over, (that's not going into somebody's pocket that is).
