Escorca

Escorca is one of the most impressive places in Mallorca, with Torrent de Pareis and Sa Calobra

 

Escorca is a town located in the mountain range of the north coast of the island and includes some of the most visited centers in Mallorca, such as the Monastery of Lluc, Cala Tuent, Torrent the Pareis and Sa Calobra. The name Escorca apparently comes from the old parish church of San Pedro de Escorca, built in the 13th century and restored several years ago.

 

At the end of Torrent de Pareis is Sa Calobra, a cove located in the Sierra de Tramuntana and at the same time a tourist center that takes its name from a small village that was nearby. Torrent de Pareis, formed by boulders is one of the few accesses to the sea that can be found in the Sierra de Tramuntana. In 2003, due to the interest of its fauna and flora (where more than 300 species were found), it was declared a "Natural Monument" by the Balearic Government.
