The eighteenth-century church of la Assumpció de la Mare de Déu, located in Puigpunyent, and the neo-classical church in the nearby village of Galilea are the main attractions of local architecture..
Puigpunyent rests on the eastern slopes of the Tramuntana Mountains of Mallorca, quite close to Palma de Mallorca. It is well known as an area of exceptional beauty, surrounded by vineyards
The town is believed to get its name from the Latin phrase "podinum pungentem", which translates into English as sharp mountain or acute hill, which is a reference to the nearby Puig de Galatzo mountain which has a markedly "pointed peak".
