There is a wonderful place in Majorca called Sierra de Tramuntana. But what makes it so special that it was rightfully included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List in the Cultural Landscapes section as of 2011.
In this magical place, where nature dominates undisputed, men have found their place without damaging its beauty and live in harmony with the environment.
Venturing a bit further, we discover the towns of the Sierra: Alarò, Andratx, Banyalbufar, Bunyola, Calvià, Deià, Escorca, Estellencs, Pollença, Soller, Valldemossa. Whether we consider landscape, local culture or gastronomy, each town has its own distinguishing features. In Valdemossa you can try the Coca, a typical dish made of potatoes, while in Soller oranges and shrimps are the undisputed specialties. Historically, Deià is famous for being the artists’ favourite town, while Alarò is renowned for its castle and Banyalbufar for its terraces.
With the GR 221, Ruta de la Piedra en Seco, el camino de los Miradores del Arxiduc and the Embalses de Cúber and Gorg Blau, Sierra de Tramuntana means trekking.
There are many ways to live the Sierra authentically and choosing a picturesque hotel is without doubt one of them.
A hotel where you can experience direct contact with local culture and where visitors are welcomed by local families, proud to be part of this unique and touching reality. Attention to details and attentive care of guests are always the priority, making you feel welcomed and cared for.
A perfect example is Cases de Cas Garriguer, in Son Olesa, a town near Valdemossa. This hotel is a little jewel made of 12 bedrooms built in old rural buildings: a 4-star agritourism where you can enjoy the island’s warm weather by the pool.
Es Molí is a 5-star paradise near Deià: a mansion built in 1459, which offers an exclusive little cove, Cala Muleta, for its guests. Es Molì is renowned for its abundant and irresistible breakfasts prepared with typical Majorcan products and for its breath-taking panorama.
In the area of Binissalem, just 8 km from the Sierra de Tramuntana, you can find Finca Dalt Murada, a typical house made of stone, surrounded by almond trees and immerged in the Majorcan countryside. A family-run agritourism, to feel at home in Majorca.
Whatever the season, Serra de Tramuntana welcomes its visitors with all its authenticity!
