Drach Caves

On the eastern part of Mallorca lies the 4 great Drach Caves. 25 metres deep and extending 1200 metres the caves offers a spectacular experience. In the depths of the cave lies lake Martel, one of the world’s largest underground lakes. Take a boat ride across the lake and experience a violin and cello concert beautifully working with the echoes of the cave to deliver a spectacular musical performance. Rare to such caves, you are allowed to take pictures and videos so there is no excuse not to perpetuate the magnificent stalactites and stalagmites of the cave.

The Alcudia


Alcudia is the ancient capital of Mallorca, a beautiful coastal town to get lost in its streets full of history and culture. Its historic centre, its beaches, its port… There are many places to visit here. Every Tuesday and Sunday the Alcudia market attracts many visitors interested in buying local products, souvenirs, clothes and accessories. To discover the city from the heights enjoying the views, it is advisable to climb the wall.
