The village of Estellencs is configured to face the sea, within a steep valley on the western part of the Tramuntana mountains, which is considered a World Heritage site. It is one of the smallest municipalities in Majorca: its surface area is only 13 km2 and it has a population of around 400 inhabitants.
The network of streets in Estellencs dates back to the Middle Ages. It is a maze of narrow, steep and winding streets and culs‑de-sac that make vehicle traffic difficult or impossible, so most drivers stay on the roads and the historical centre has little or no vehicle circulation.
The town has been declared a Bien de Interés Cultural.
