Are you already dreaming of your next holiday destination on these cold winter days? We recommend a trip in the name of nature, such as a holiday in Mallorca with Logitravel.
Mallorca, the largest island of the Balearic archipelago, is characterized by charming coves, coves, beaches, nature parks and a network of natural caves, about 800. So far only five caves can be visited, masterpieces of nature of rare beauty, let’s discover which ones.
The Campanet Caves are the largest and are divided into several “halls”. The Enchanted Hall leads to a garden overlooking the sea from which to admire a beautiful view.
The Drach Caves in Porto Cristo are four interconnected caves: the ‘de los Franceses’ cave, the ‘Luis Salvador’ cave, the ‘cueva Blanca’ cave and the ‘cueva Negra’ cave. They are one of the largest cavities of the island given their horizontal development of about 2,400 m and a maximum depth of 25 m, formed by the sea that penetrates and dating back to the era of Miocene.
The waters have carved into them an underground lake, Lake Martel, one of the largest in the world, 117 m long and 30 m wide, slightly salty. The cave was cleverly illuminated in 1935 by Eng. Carlos Buigás, thanks to which you can admire the beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. In this beautiful natural setting there are daily concerts of classical music with songs by Caballero, Chopin, Offenbach, and at the end of the shows you can take a short boat trip on the lake.
The Hams Caves were formed from an underground river that flowed into the sea and are perhaps the best preserved caves. The main attraction is the intense white color of the stalactites and stalagmites and the yellowish tones that are formed by the oxidation of iron, enhanced by artificial lighting of modern electrical equipment. Inside, shows and events take place.
The Caves of Artà are located in the south-eastern part of the island and are characterized by the formation of fantastic stalactites. The so-called Sala de las Banderas (Hall of Columns), reaches a height of 45 m. The visit to the “cuevas” takes between 25 and 40 minutes. The Caves of Gènova, are the smallest and deepest on the island, to visit them you have to go down to 36 meters deep. They are 5 km from Palma de Mallorca.
