Leisure and nature
PLACES TO REMEMBER
In Majorca you can enjoy not only the magnificent beaches but also several leisure areas, nature parks and impressive natural caves. A playful offer that will satisfy the most varied tastes. There is room for everything and for all tastes: enjoying the good weather, practicing sports in wild nature and discovering the island with different proposals to the usual tourist circuits is very easy.
PUIG DE GALATZÓ
Puig de Galatzó is the first summit with more than 1000 metres high located to the South of the Sierra de Tramontana. Its isolation from the rest of the mountain range makes it a mountain in a privileged viewpoint over the bay of Palma and the surrounding mountains. In the park the most daring ones can feel strong emotions in the adventure trail climbing, crossing different bridges and sliding in zip lines.
CATEDRAL DE PALMA
The Saint Mary’s Cathedral-Basilica in Palma, also known as the Cathedral of Majorca, is the main religious building on the island of Majorca. It is called La Seu. It consists of a Levantine Gothic style temple built on the shore of the bay of Palma.
PARQUE NATURAL DE MONDRAGÓ
It is located in one of the most ornithological areas of Majorca at the Southeast of the island, in Santanyí. This natural park has a great variety of landscapes, with ravines, beaches, dune areas, torrents and holm oak forests. The park hosts an important diversity of birds; within the park you can follow different itineraries, both on foot or by bike, enjoy several ecosystems, visit typical elements of traditional architecture and the incredibly beautiful panoramic views. As a curiosity, in the natural park can still be found remains of the contraband activity that was practiced in the area, especially in the first half of the twentieth century.
CUEVAS DEL DRACH
The Drach Caves are one of the most famous guided tours of Majorca. Discovered in 1896, they are visited by thousands of tourists every year. There are more than a thousand of caves and six subterranean lakes. It is a spectacle to watch so closely the illuminated clusters of stalactites and stalagmites. Within these caves there is a great underground lake, Lake Martel, listed as one of the largest underground lakes in the world. Here classical music concerts are offered daily with pieces performed by musicians on boats.
