Cultural landscape of the Serra de Tramuntana World Heritage
On 29 June 2011, the Serra de Tramuntana was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the Cultural Landscape category. This distinction refers to the result of the interaction between natural and human factors, as established by the European Landscape Convention. Millenary agriculture, in an environment with scarce water resources, has transformed the terrain and created an articulated network of interconnected water management mechanisms between different plots of feudal origin.
The Serra de Tramuntana Consortium promotes policies for the improvement and conservation of all these elements and of the tangible and intangible values, with actions that seek the involvement and participation of all the people who live and work there and that aim to improve human intervention and the sustainability of the territory of the Serra de Tramuntana World Heritage Site.
