Cultural landscape of the Sierra de Tramuntana


Description

Running parallel to the northwest coast of the island of Majorca, we find a unique agricultural landscape, with irrigation systems dating from mediaeval times. It has been declared a World Heritage site by the UNESCO. Did you know that Chopin and Spanish author Camilo José Cela praised it for its beauty? From the municipal district of Andratx to the Cape of Formentor, you can admire a succession of steep mountains and beautiful valleys, with mills and bridges scattered all over the area. Don't miss viewpoints such as Ses Tres Creus (Sóller). What animals can you find here? Birds such as the black vulture and osprey. What's on offer in the park? The network of hiking routes called "Piedra en seco" crosses this area and includes special paths for families. The route from the city of Palma to the Sierra de Tramuntana can be done in a period train: the Sóller railway. There are also other interesting towns in the area such as Deià, Valdemossa, Andratx and Pollença.
