For some of the most astounding views that can be found in the Balearic region of Europe, a visit to Cap De Formentor is a must for any avid sightseer. Situated on the most northern tip of the island of Majorca, Cap De Formentor stands almost four hundred metres above sea level and offers a spectacular panoramic view. Take in the visual beauty of the cliffs, the golden sandy beaches stretching in all directions, and the Mediterranean sea crashing into the rocks far below as you enjoy the serene ambience of Cap de Formentor.

Despite the perilous drive up the narrow winding roads along the craggy mountainsides, various lookout points have been strategically placed along the route up to the bluff for perfect photography opportunities. Once at the top, the old lighthouse is an interesting structure to explore and the views surrounding you will literally take your breath away.

Located in the Mediterranean Sea, the island of Majorca is one of the most frequented tourist destinations in the world. However, the town of Llotja is a lesser-known yet unforgettable location nestled within this island paradise. Llotja was originally a mercantile exchange that was established as far back as the Middle Ages. Since that time, it has been nearly constantly inhabited by local artisans and tradesmen.Of particular interest is a building known as Sa Llotja. This structure is actually partially a castle and partially a cathedral. The interior offers the visitor a view of some of the most amazing pillars and architectural roof supports known in the region; many of them the original pieces.

While the historical attractions that llotja provides cannot be overstated, the nightlife offered here is equally notable. The visitor has the choice to frequent many of the modern clubs located only a stone’s throw from the beach while otherwise there exist many local bars and restaurants that offer authentic tastes of this wonderfully distinct town.

Whether one decides to arrive for the history or the vibrant nightlife, Llotja will certainly not disappoint.

Located in Santa Eugenia, Zoo Natura Parc contains wildlife attractions that attract countless visitors every year. The zoo itself sits upon a hillside that provides some excellent viewing conditions of the local landscape, but the primary sights that this zoo offers are located within.

One aspect worth mentioning is that this zoo is very “child friendly”. For example, many animals such as goats and lemurs are allowed to roam around freely, thus creating a unique atmosphere for young ones to enjoy. Notwithstanding these smaller creatures, Zoo Natura Parc is also home to a number of species of big cats and such magnificent creatures such as zebras and many different types of cows and bulls. There is also a diverse section devoted to a wide variety of birds including owls, cormorans, hawks and flamingos.

This zoo is ideally suited for visitors of all ages and furthermore, the pricing is quite agreeable and will allow for an entire day of unforgettable enjoyment.
