Natural landscape of Serra de Tramuntana
Natural landscape of Serra de Tramuntana

Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011, it is the largest protected natural area in the Balearic Islands. Almost 90 km long, it is the backbone of Mallorca in which we find two lakes, two reservoirs and the Puig Major peak, almost 1,500 meters high.

Deep canyons such as Sa Fosca or the abundant karstic areas with caves, such as Sa Campana cave highlight the attractiveness of this area. This abrupt relief has also allowed the creation of unique ways of life with an important endemic flora and fauna. For example, here alone live 9 species of unique orchids or the ferreret, a small toad that survives in the waters of the karst canyons.

Serra de Tramuntana is the perfect example of coexistence between nature and man. There, for example, the old irrigation systems from the Muslim era and the dry stone terraces, known as marjades, built for farming, are preserved.

In its interior it keeps traditional and most picturesque villages such as Andratx, Valldemossa or Pollença, villages that are also popular known by artists such as Chopin or Robert Graves. Also noteworthy is the Lluc Sanctuary, the spiritual center of Mallorca and a pilgrimage meeting point

Also, if you are a lover of adventure sports, it is an adventure paradise thanks to its rocky terrain where you can practice everything from rock climbing to canyoning or coasteering.
