Set in the heart of the Raiguer district, Consell has known how to conserve the charms and traditions of agricultural Mallorca. The crops of its plains and the riverbed of the torrent of Solleric, which crosses the municipality, characterise the landscape of its virtually flat terrain.
The Islamic farmstead of Conxel is the origin of the village, which is located on the top of a small hill in the central area of the municipality.
In addition to examples of traditional Mallorcan architecture, the parish church of Nostra Senyora de la Visitaciˇ is one of its many points of interest. This rectangular-shaped neo-classical building houses a handsome altarpiece dedicated to Sant Josep and two others dedicated to Sant Crist, which date from the sixteenth and seventeenth century.
Pont Trencat, a stone bridge crossing the torrent of Solleric which marks the boundary with Alarˇ, and the farmstead of Masnou, which has an important site dating from the Muslim era, are two visits that must not be overlooked.At present, in addition to agriculture and handicrafts, Consell has important food processing industries. Among its typical products are its wines, officially included in the Binissalem denomination of origin.
