The northwestern side of Majorca is the mountainous side with the famous World Heritage Serra de Tramuntana mountains. Below are some of the locations we explored.
Banyalbufar was a vineyard during the Middle Ages which used an elaborate system of terraced aquaducts, walls and stones used for irrigation of the fields.
The 1912 church of Sant Bartomeu (Saint Bartholomew) in the town of Sóller is the dominant highlight.
As with many of the Majorcan towns, the old town was established first and then the port access for the town, Port de Sóller. This port has a scenic harbor surrounded by the mountains.
The pretty village of Valldemossa has many unique shops which make it a delight to visit. It is also a residence of Chopin.
The mountain village of Fornalutx is high up the Tramuntana mountain range overlooking the Sóller valley. The village is referred to as the ‘Prettiest village in Spain’.
Stone buildings and red tiled roofs combine with the surrounding orange and lemon groves to provide a very picturesque charm.
