Mallorca's Mountain Ranges #
Mallorca has two mountain ranges: The lower Serra de Llevant in the northeast with its highest peak, the Puig Morei, standing at 564 m; and the Serra de Tramuntana running all the way along the northwest coast of the island. It has an overall length of 90 km and, is up to 15 km wide in some areas, and covers approximately 30% of the Mallorca's territory. It's highest peak is the Puig Major with 1,445 m followed by the Penyal de Migdia with 1,398 m.
In 2011, the Serra de Tramuntana was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the cultural landscape category,
"Millennia of agriculture in an environment with scarce resources has transformed the terrain and displays an articulated network of devices for the management of water revolving around farming units of feudal origins. The landscape is marked by agricultural terraces and inter-connected water works - including water mills - as well as dry stone constructions and farms." – Unesco World Heritage Website
