The treasures of Formentera

Formentera is an island of treasures, more or less hidden, just as the various legends and popular beliefs tell. For example it is said that Formentera was the favorite place of pirates who hid their loot here. But to discover what the island has to offer you will have to be a tourist curious and enterprising, as well as proving the maximum respect for nature

We start from Lighthouse of La Mola, which has a very special charm. From here you can see the sun rise. The white tower stands majestically and overlooks the surrounding environment. This atmosphere of peace and tranquility will pleasantly carry with you throughout the day.

Another, less hidden, treasure they are Mills which are part of the typical landscape of Formentera. Today they are no longer in use but if you want to dive into the past you have to visit the one in The pillar, renovated and open to the public.

If you are passionate about Roman history, it is easy to find a testimony of the Roman people in the area of Can Pins where the remains of a military building were discovered and not far away, a necropolis

Also worth seeing are the spectacular caves of Cova D'en Jeroni, where stalactites and stalagmites have formed, a real natural spectacle. Remember to take a sweater or a scarf to enter because the temperatures are much lower than outside.

A Cap of Barbaria instead you can admire a breathtaking sunset. But what's even more special is the famous one Cova Foradada (cave with holes) which is located near the lighthouse. It is a very difficult cave to identify but the view will repay the effort.
