 MALLORCA - TOSSALS VERDS

Tossals Verds is an estate that dates back to 16 th century. It is situated in the hart of the Tramuntana mountains.  The nature is unspoilt. You enter from the south through steep mountain sides. There is a "refugio" where lunch can be taken ( call first for booking). It is about 1 1/4 hr fairly easy walking.

In the beginning of February the "Almendros" are in blossom. An estimated of 7 million trees makes the island look as if covered with frost. It last approximately 3 weeks, and is a spectacular sight.
