Son Servera is a Spanish town and municipality located in the northeastern part of Mallorca , an autonomous community of the Balearic Islands . On the shores of the Mediterranean Sea , this municipality limits with those of San Lorenzo del Cardezar , Artá ​​and Capdepera .

The municipality of Servera is one of the five entities that make up the Levante Mallorca region , and includes the population centers of Cala Millor —the most inhabited—, Son Servera —municipal capital—, Cala Bona , Costa de los Pinos and Puerto Nuevo, Puerto Verde and Puerto Viejo ( Port Nou, Port Verd and Port Vell ), as well as the scattered ones of Pula and Es Rafalet.

Son Servera has Mount Son Lluc to the northeast and Na Peñal and the Pic de la Fuente to the southwest. Cala Millor is the main coastal town, divided between the administration of San Lorenzo de Cardezar and that of Son Servera. It is an important family tourist destination and one of the most visited towns in Mallorca during the summer months, which has a wide range of hotels. Cala Bona is a port town , where its moorings are divided between fishing and recreational boats. The town of Costa de los Pinos is a population of second homes and chalets. In Pula there is a remarkable golf course redesigned by José María Olazábal and considered one of the ten best courses in Spain. Pula Golf has hosted eight tournaments of theEuropean Tour.

The place name of Son Servera appears documented for the first time in 1560. The term Son comes from the Majorcan Ço (això) de'n , widely used to refer to large possessions , which literally means "this of" . The term Servera comes from the surname of the first owners of these lands. The word refers to the common rowan tree , which in Catalan is called cervera , which appears on the town's coat of arms.

The name of Son Servera displaced the old one of Binicanella , an Islamic farmhouse that appears documented as Benu Quinena in the 13th century . That place name, in disuse since the 16th century , was recovered in 1967 for the foundation of a Benedictine monastery in Son Servera called Santa María de Binicanella, which was moved to Buñola eight years later.

The only demonym used is that of serverino/a.

Son Servera once belonged to Artá , (Arabic terminology for Yartan ) just like Capdepera . Starting in 1820 and due to the new law that proclaimed the ability to create a municipality for any nucleus of more than a thousand inhabitants, it became independent, although soon after, in 1824, it lost it and did not recover it until 1837, when Don Francisco Servera was its first mayor.
