NATURAL PARK OF MONDRAGÓ

Cala Dor
25º C

One of the places of major natural interest in the island. One feels part of something greater; nature’s performance.

Where all your senses come to life

It’s a privileged place, and the hundreds of animals and vegetation that live there know that. It is 766 hectares, 95 of which are public property and the rest belongs to private properties mostly used for the extensive cultivation of crops.It is as if colours shined brighter in this park. Furthermore, there are plenty of characteristic elements of agriculture and farming that strike the eye. Stone walls are a masterpiece, you can also see popular engineering linked to the use of water such as waterwheels, ditches or water tanks. Lime furnaces, coalminer huts, boatyards, quarries, small defence constructions and smugglers’ hideouts.In 1992, Mondragó was declared a natural park. It is also a Natural Area of Special Interest (ANEI) and belongs to the Natura 2000 network as a Special Protection Area for Birds (ZEPA) and a Site of Community Interest (LIC). You can reach the park by the Palma-Santanyí road (Ma-19). You can find signs in Santanyí, s’Alqueria Blanca and from the road to Cala Figuera.
