"The Cultural Landscape of the Serra de Tramuntana located on a sheer-sided mountain range parallel to the north-western coast of the island of Mallorca. 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."Listen and watch closely as Mallorca's creative legacy, wine-making traditions and culinary prowess meld together in perfect harmony on this tour that includes a live piano concert.
