Caimari, a small village of the municipality of Selva, situated in the North part of Mallorcca, on the East side of the Serra de Tramuntana, has a singular open air museum that shows in an educational way a group of traditional constructions of rural life.

The space, known as the "Parc Etnol˛gic de Caimari", was opened on November 16, 2002, coinciding with the celebration of the fifth edition of the Olive fair.

In an area of 3000 square metres, near the entrance to the village, next to the public swimming pool, at present there is an exhibition of a charcoal burner's hut, an oven, a charcoal burning site known as a "sitja", a lime kiln, a blackberry hedge enclosure, a 'coll de tords' (special bird trap), a stone trap, and as a novelty, a snow house that was opened coinciding with the last edition of the Olive Fair, on November 15, 2003.

As part of the fair, the book "Parc Etnol˛gic de Caimari. Guia de visita" by Antoni Ordinas Garau, was presented and it offers full information about the museum and about the 'tafones' (oil presses) of Oli Caimari, the vantage point of the old road to Lluc, and about other places of interest in the village.

Recently some seventy autochthonous species have been planted with the aim of creating a botanical garden inside the park.
