Sant Joan borders the communities of Vilafranca, Petra, Sineu, Lloret de Vistalegre, Montuïri and Porreres and is located about 6km west of Petra and 7km southeast of Sineu. The farming village was called Alahamar in ancient times and is surrounded by hills that rise from the vast Pla plain.
Even today, agriculture and livestock are the most tangible sectors of activity, so the products also play an important role, such as the tomatiga de ramallets (puffed tomatoes) and the cured meats Botifarrón and Sobrassada.
Sant Joan has an unusually large church, Sant Joan Baptista, whose origins date back to 1293. The parish church has a magnificent interior with an Alabsterkanzel and a valuable ceiling paneling.
Another attraction is the estate Els Calderers. This manorial estate provides an impressive insight into the world of the Mallorcan country nobility as he resided several centuries ago.
