The Serra de Tramuntana is a World Heritage Site, declared so by Unesco in 2011, for its imposing natural landscapes and its cultural richness. It is a mountain range that runs along the coast of the island of Mallorca from the northwest to the southwest, offering visitors the best view of the turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. It is a spectacle to behold; however, this massif has more to offer to tourists.
A tour by car will allow you to get to know the rural villages, the stone walls, the torrents, the local gastronomy and to get in touch with the history reflected in the monuments and architectural works dating back even to the prehistoric era.
