Over many years in Mallorca, stone on stone, man has been modeling and adapting the means to take advantage of the natural resources and has generated this way, landscapes with unique characteristics.
It is necessary to enter in the mountains of Tramuntana to realize the meaning of the dry stone in our surroundings. The “marges” here are the main element and the large groups built to gain farmland occupy almost 200 km2 and more than 20% of the territory. This construction is only explained to enable the Mallorcan peasant to cultivate on steep terrain. These terraces also allowed the construction of houses and villages along the inaccessible Serra.
Definitely, it has become an important part of our natural, historical and cultural heritage.
