Palma HIghlights and the Caves of Drach
Visit the famous Caves of Drach, and admire the largest underground lake in the world, known as Lake Martel. This also includes a panoramic overview of Palma, including a stop at a local tapas bar for a tasty refreshment.
Departing from the pier, your coach heads toward the town of Porto Cristo, one of the oldest anchorages of the island. This fishing village is located at the end of a sheltered bay which developed in the Middle Ages to cater for Manacor. On the outskirts of the town is where the famous Caves of Drach are located. There are three main caves: Cueva Negra (Black Cave), Cueva Blanca (White Cave) and Cueva Luis Salvator. At the end of Cueva Luis Salvator is a spot called La Ventana (the window). Through La Ventana there is a huge lake, known as Lago Martel (Lake Martel), behind which is the newest discovery of the caves, known as Cueva de los Franceses (Cave of the French).
During your visit to the Drach Caves, you will also enjoy a classical music concert for the public on Lake Martel. The orchestra is positioned on several different boats on the lake, with wonderful lighting and special effects. The stunning, magical atmosphere will be unforgettable. If time allows, you will enjoy a rowboat ride across Lake Martel.
After vising the cave, rejoin the coach for a panoramic drive through Palma. Pass by the inviting 14th century circular Bellver Castle with a unique round tower and enjoy a great view of the city of Palma. Next, head to the stunning Cathedral of La Seu that is Mallorca´s most emblematic building of the city. It stands in the historic old quarter of Palma. The site of a former mosque, this Catholic cathedral became the scene of Mallorcan coronations – thus the impressive architectural design and imposing height. After this panoramic tour, stop at a local tapas bar for a refreshment, before returning back to the yacht.
