  • Sierra de Tramuntana

    Address:
    Serra de Tramuntana, Spain .

    The Serra de Tramuntana is declared World Heritage by UNESCO in the category of Cultural Landscape. It is the recognition of the international community to the almost perfect symbiosis between the action of the human being and nature, carried out over centuries, which has resulted in a monumental human work in which culture, traditions, aesthetics, spirituality and identity are mixed.

    The cultural landscape of the Serra is the result of the exchange of knowledge between cultures, with small works carried out collectively for productive purposes, conditioned by the limitations imposed by the physical environment. Limitations overcome based on wisdom and intelligent use of resources, without destroying the environment. And it is also the recreation of a territory through the collective imagination and the works of artists who have found inspiration in it.

     

    According to the European Landscape Agreement, any part of the territory will be understood as Cultural Landscape as perceived by the population, and its character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and / or human factors. This suggests that it is not just about maintaining the territory of the Serra as it is today. It is also about improving human intervention, promoting it with sustainable activities according to objectives.

     

    The Serra de Tramuntana vertebra northwest of Mallorca. It extends along about 90 km, with a maximum width of 15 km, over the territory of 20 municipalities - the largest being Calvià, Pollença and Escorca -, which represents almost 30% of the island territory and more than 1,000 km2 . Some 8,000 people live in the core areas, but the buffer population is 40,000. Several peaks exceed 1,000 m high, highlighting the Puig Major (1,443), the Puig de Massanella (1,348 m), the Serra d’Alfàbia (1,069 m), is Teix (1,064) and the Galatzó (1,026 m).

  • Tranvía de Sòller

    Address:
    Estació Sóller, Plaça d'Espanya, Sóller, Spain .

    On 4th October of 1913 Mallorca’s first electric tram line was inaugurated, running between Sóller and the Port of Sóller.

    Construction of the Sóller tram began after the inauguration of the Palma to Sóller railway line. The project for this line was designed and directed by Pedro Garau, and 4868 metres of track were laid. One outstanding feature of it is the iron bridge over the Torrent Major which was constructed by Maquinista Terrestre y Marítima.

    Initially the tram had an electric power station located in the Sóller station. The station was fed by a 65 horsepower explosion engine which worked a Siemens-Schuckert dynamo, providing a continuous 600 volt current.

    Although the Sóller tram was designed for the transport of passengers, it was also used to transport merchandise down to the port. Fresh fish was carried from the Port to Sóller in a small isothermal car and coal was taken to the former military submarine base in the Port of Sóller and the “El Gas” factory on trailers; mines and torpedoes were also transported from the Caubet magazine.

    The three motor trams, numbered 1 to 3, and their trailers 5 and 6 are the originals, dating from 1912, ordered from Carde & Escoriaza in Zaragoza. The open ‘jardinera’ trailers were acquired from Palma trams in 1954.

    The Sóller tramway also has five motor trams from Lisbon, numbered 20 to 24 and re-gauged to fit the 914 mm track gauge.
