The UNESCO’s World Heritage List

Undoubtedly, the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range is one of the most striking features of this wonderful island. Its awe-inspiring karstic landscape is marked by agricultural terraces, dry stone walls and foot-paths, torrent watercourses and lusciously rich vegetation of holm-oak woods and olive-tree plantations.

Yesterday, at the 35th session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in 
Paris, France, Mallorca’s Serra de Tramuntana was given the long-desired World Natural Landscape Heritage status. The UNESCO World Heritage Committee comprises representatives of 21 countries. María Salom, the newly elected president of the Consell de Mallorca, only sworn in a few day ago, must be particularly pleased about the laurels, even though she did not have to work for the distinction. Nevertheless, ¡enhorabona!

Moltes gràcies.
