THE DECLARATION

Two of the elements of the Serra de Tramuntana that possess the Exceptional Universal Value which UNESCO demands in order to declare a site World Heritage stand out from the rest: the dry stone constructions and the water channelling systems.

 
Thus, the mountain range constitutes an exceptional example of Mediterranean agricultural landscape, due to its peculiar combination of water supply systems applied to irrigation, of Islamic origin, for the cultivation of vegetable gardens and citrus orchards. In addition we have the dry farming zones, in particular olive groves, delimited by terraces built on the mountainside.
 
One interesting point that should be highlighted is that 95% of the territory of the Serra de Tramuntana is privately owned, so public and private collaboration is fundamental for improving its management.
