Driving and Hiking the Serra de Tramuntana
As I have mentioned in a few of my posts, our villa in Mallorca was located in the Serra de Tramuntana which occupies much of Mallorca's western coast. It is this mountain range that gives Mallorca its unique yet beautiful landscape. Aside from enjoying the views poolside, we took in all the Serra de Tramuntana has to offer in our drive to the Cap de Formentor (much more recommended than driving through Palma) and our morning hikes. Given pictures will display the beauty of the Serra de Tramuntana much more than words, below is a number of shots from our drive and hike through the mountain range.
