SIERRA DE TRAMONTANA IN MALLORCA: A TREASURE OF BALEARIC ISLANDS
Mallorca and the other islands that make up the Balearic archipelago are well-known for their impressive beaches and crystal-water coves. With fine sand or rocks, all of them count with a special charm that makes them unique.
But the Balearic Islands are much more than their impressive beaches: Mallorca is an island full of nature with natural parks, olive fields, long trails, underground caves, and observing centres of all kinds of animals.
One of the most impressive treasures in Mallorca is Sierra de Tramuntana, declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 2011. It is a mountain chain of 90 km that extends from the southwest to the north of the island, in the Polleca bay, where it finally reaches the sea. It is considered the spinal axis of the island and there are some of the most beautiful villages like Soller, Andratx o Fornalutx.
The beauty of Sierra de Tramuntana never ends: it counts on hills of more than 1000 metres, that in winter turns white because of the snow, it counts in many trails to go hiking, and forms a rural landscape with olive areas and little villages with centuries old. Besides, it is an unbeatable scenario for extreme sports lovers, with a wide variety of places for practising climbing and other disciplines in the vertical rocky walls or trails.
The Torrent de Pareis is probably the bigger wonder in Sierra de Tramontana in Mallorca. There converge the Gog Blau and Lluc torrents at 150 metres height, and continues its way of more than 3000 metres to the sea between tall walls up to 200 metres, formed by the action of the water over the calcareous rock, creating fractures in them. Besides of its impressive beauty, counts on favourable climate conditions as well as an orography that put together more than 300 species of flora, some of them exist only in the Balearic Islands.
It is a unique scenario where to go hiking, with a route of 5 kilometres with an accumulated difference of height of 630 metres. A route for everyone, but with a minimum duration of 4 or 5 hours in which you pass through excavated tunnels in the rocks, that allow us to get at the end of the route an impressive image: the huge rocks at the end of which the imposing Mediterranean Sea opens up in different shades.
