2. Serra De Tramuntana – The Mountain Chain of Majorca

A beautiful stretch of mountains in the North-West of Majorca, this is the place to take long drives. These long, winding roads are encircled by limestone rocks, pine trees, and abandoned fincas; old Spanish farms. This place shows the more rugged side of the Mediterranean, with its seaside cliffs. Some of the best places to visit along this chain are car access only, so visitors should take the scenic route through this region.
