Discover the heartland of Majorca
When one first thinks of an island many immediately envisage the sea – especially with a holiday island like Majorca. In actual fact the beautiful beaches and many lovely coastal resorts are an attractive proposition. But it will not take you long to realise that the island’s heartland has a lot to offer. Here away from the tourist resorts you are greeted by an impressive mountain and hill landscape with deep gorges and valleys. Ideal for a couple of trips – whether by foot, on a mountain bike or with the car. Particularly beautiful is for example the mountain range Serra de Tramuntana that stretches along the north western coast. In many pretty small villages in the heartland you can find the real Majorcan way of life with small cafés and bodegas inviting you to linger. Alternative pack up a picnic and choose a spot somewhere in the countryside to enjoy a lovely snack. There are lots of places with lovely panoramic settings offering views across the mountains, valleys and gorges. Far in the distance the blue ocean shimmers. Some of these areas are so peaceful and secluded that you may only on occasion come across a goat that lives here in the wild.
Culinary discoveries on Majorca
When visiting Majorca you should also go on a culinary discovery tour of the island. Many cafes and restaurants especially in small places invite you to taste some of the regional specialties. How about a Sobrasada as a little snack or starter with the main course? Sobrasada is a traditional Majorcan meat spread with a lot of paprika. It is quite spicy and is best eaten on a slice of freshly toasted bread. Or how about tumbet? It is a type of stew made of aubergine, paprika, potatoes and many spices. This dish that tastes equally good when cold and warm can easily prepared in your own holiday home. Just buy the ingredients fresh from the market and then you can start. This is perfectly complemented with a nice Majorcan red wine made from the local Manto Negro.
