East Majorca, the Serra de Llevant, impresses with its hilly landscapes, wide fields and unspoiled countryside. Among the interesting sights are nature reserves, a marine reserve as well as a varied coastline with charming, uncrowded beaches. This is where the world is still unspoiled, far away from the tourist crowds and with excellent restaurants, interesting shops, idyllic retreats and beautiful hotels. Manacor is the island’s second largest city and the bastion of the pearl and furniture industry. This is where Rafa Nadal was born who, with his Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar, the adjacent Tennis and Sports Centre and the American International School has built a monument to himself. The only “via verde” of the Balearics, a 29 km long nature route for hiking and cycling aficionados with six rest stops for extended picnics, runs between Manacor and Artà. Passing through Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Son Carrió and Son Servera, this former railway line goes past former stations. Artà impresses with its old pilgrimage church Santuari de Sant Salvador, grand fortress walls and idyllic alleyways. It is a real must to explore this corner of the island because of its mix of cultural heritage, tradition, modernity, natural beauty and tourism and thus experience for a few moments the real Majorca.
