Alaró's origin dates to the Islamic period. The documented history begins in the thirteenth century, during the reconquest of Mallorca, with its Castillo de Alaro being the centre of this. The Castillo de Alaro was built by Christian inhabitants to ward off invasions from pirates. The town was the first to have an urban electricity network on the island. This event happened on August 15, 1901. Currently, electric distribution is unified with the rest of the island, but as a sign of how important it was for the island of Mallorca, on May 8, 2000, the Consell Insular de Mallorca marked the tower of the old factory as a monument of cultural interest. The municipality's most characteristic image is that of the twin peaks, Castell and s ílcadena, which inspired numerous legends. This panorama is a landmark when entering the village from Consell. However, it is also possible to reach Alaro by taking the secondary Raiguer road, the Santa Maria road or by way of Lloseta where there is another kind of scenery to enjoy, perhaps not so spectacular but certainly picturesque. There are many country estates along these secondary roads, evidence of the rural economy that existed until the advent of tourism: Son Antem and Son Fiol, on the Santa Maria road, Sa Teulera, on the Coanegra-Alaro road, Son Penyaflor and Son Curt on the Castell road. Son Palou was an important family of the area. Son Palou was their country estate. Son Forteza, Son Guitart and Son Grau are on the way to Lloseta. Today the town of Alaro (5.500 inhabitants), offers a vivid village life all year round and attracts locals as well as tourists with its many charming restaurants, bars and the saturday market.
