who are we?

On January 16, 2013 the City Council of Son Servera and the City Council of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, together with the Hotel Association Badia de Cala Millor-Sa Coma, created the Consorci de Turisme de Son Servera i Sant Llorenç des Cardassar. It is a public law organization that enjoys its own legal personality and was created with the aim of promoting and encouraging tourism in the respective municipalities. The tourist area of Son Servera and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar has about 35,000 beds and is the third most important destination in the Balearic Islands.

The estimated investment that has an impact on the projects defined in the roadmap set by the Tourism Consortium is about 15 million euros, a sum that is divided between all those initiatives managed by the Consortium itself, as well as those directly undertaken by the municipalities of Son Servera and Sant Llorenç.

The common denominator of all of them is the action on sustainability and promotion of Cala Millor as a tourist destination deseasonalitzado. The financing of the projects comes mainly from both European Next Generation funds and direct EU investments in the municipalities, as is the case of the LIFE Project

The main objectives of the Consorci de Turisme de Son Servera i Sant Llorenç des Cardassar are:

  • To study tourism and commercial problems linked to the tourism sector, and to adopt or propose appropriate measures to solve them.
