An underground journey around Mallorca03/09/2012
The island of Mallorca emerges in the middle of the Mediterranean with a spectacular mountainous landscape. It has countless underground corners to discover: large caverns with rock formations that are just asking you to let your imagination run wild.
More than 20 caves of great geological and patrimonial value can be found in Mallorca. Many are truly natural works of art, with open entrances and suitable for people to see and enjoy them in complete safety.
Stepping foot inside their dark passages is an exciting and unforgettable experience that takes visitors back in time and creates a special link with nature. Some caves have easy access and others – more hidden away – can only be seen when arriving by sea, either by swimming along the coast from some nearby cove or by boat.
The most famous are the breathtaking and well-known Cuevas del Drach (Caves of the Dragon). Located in Portocristo on Mallorca's most eastern coast, the caves offer visitors almost 3km of rocky passageways. They are decorated with a thousand fanciful shapes and lead to – as a final surprise – Lake Martel, where a classical music concert is held.
Other well known and impressive caves are the Cuevas de Artà (Caves of Artà), located in the east of Mallorca in the Capdepera municipality. Set into the coast, the spectacular beauty of their caverns and passageways is due to them being part of a mountain that hangs over the sea.
The Prinsotel group of hotels in Mallorca invites you to discover the island's secrets while relaxing in some of its best establishments: Hotel Prinsotel La Pineda (located in the town of Cala Ratjada, a step away from the Cuevas de Artà) and Hotel Prinsotel Alba (in Cala d'Or, next to Portocristo).
