Natural Park of Levant

The Natural Park of Levant and the Natural Reserves of Ferrutx Cape and des Freu Cape are located on the north-eastern area of Mallorca, on the Northern area of the Serra de Llevant, and are included in the municipalities of Artà and Capdepera.

The acquisition by the Balearic government of the estates of Albarca and Es Verger in 1999 was the inspiration idea for creating the park and the capes that were subsequently declared Natural Park through the Decree 127/2001. Furthermore, this place is located in a Special Protection Area for Wild Birds (SPA) and is a Site of Community Interest (SIC) according to the EU rules on birds and habitats. Whereas, its part of the Balearic contribution proposal to become part of the ecological network Natura 2000 of the European Union.

An extension of 1,671 hectares, of which 1658 are public estates: Albarca, Es Verger and Alqueria Vella, and 13 hectares are part of the Natural Reserve of Cap des Freu. Therefore, the park occupies a good part of the eastern peninsula of the island. The environment is variable: high mountains, wild beaches (Arenalet des Verger, Arenalet d'Albarca, etc.) and cliffs. The vegetation and fauna are also varied. Regarding the vegetation, we can find oak and pine woods, as well as traditional Mallorcan garrigue. Besides the species of different reintroduction projects like the kite or reproduction projects like the Mediterranean tortoise, we can find birds like the fishing eagle or the traditional cattle of the Mallorcan possessios like goats, sheep, cows and oxen in the public estates that are part of the park. Finally, it is worth highlighting that along the park we find some refuges like the houses of Albarca, Arenalet or the house of the Oguers and different routes and activities to improve the knowledge about the entire Natural Park of Levant.
