The ‘Viu el patrimoni’ programme offers twelve cultural activities between June and November in different municipalities of the Serra de Tramuntana.

The Consell de Mallorca, through the Serra de Tramuntana Consortium, is presenting the ‘Viu el patrimoni’ (See the Heritage) programme, which offers guided tours, visits to properties and product tastings in the different municipalities within the World Heritage area from June to November. All the activities are free of charge and are designed to give citizens the chance to experience the elements and values that made it possible for the Serra de Tramuntana to be declared a World Heritage Site.

The heritage and products of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range

The programme includes four tastings to showcase the products made exclusively in the Serra, overcoming the difficulties of its complicated orography. The first outing took place last Saturday, at the Son Puig winery in Puigpunyent. In June a wine tasting will be offered at Son Moragues (Valldemossa) and Can Xoroi (Fornalutx), and in September another wine tasting will take place at Vinyes Mortitx (Escorca).

The Minister of the Presidency, Antoni Fuster, stresses that ‘the proposed tastings go beyond the gastronomic experience, as they allow us to recognise the efforts of the producers in shaping and maintaining this landscape, which is recognised as a World Heritage Site’.

The programme proposes the discovery of emblematic possessions of the Serra de Tramuntana, one of the elements that Unesco valued for the declaration of the Serra as a cultural landscape. Guided visits have been organised to Miramar (Deià), es Verger (Alaró), Son Amer and the Lluc mill (Escorca) and Son Vic Vell (es Capdellà) with several heritage experts.
Finally, four guided routes are offered through s’Ull de s’Aigua (Esporles), the villages of Binibona (Caimari), Biniarroi (Mancor de la Vall) and Moscari (Selva).

‘Viu el patrimoni’ has the logistical support of the company Més Cultura, from Sóller, directed by Aina Mora, and the collaboration of some of the most expert cultural guides in the Serra de Tramuntana, such as Joan Carles Palos and Tomàs Vibot.

The calendar of events runs from June to November and coincides with the fairs held in the municipalities of the Serra de Tramuntana. This complements the Consortium’s commitment to disseminate among the citizens the values that underpin the declaration of World Heritage, in the category of cultural landscape, by Unesco in 2011.

How to request an invitation

To try to diversify the number of attendees and reach as many people as possible, this year the invitations will be distributed by lottery, instead of by order of registration. In this way, those interested will be able to purchase, on the platform, a zero-euro ticket for a maximum of five attendees for each draw. Two days before each activity, a random number will be drawn on the platform and the places available for each activity (which vary each time, depending on the type of activity) will be allocated based on this number. In addition, a certain number of tickets will be reserved for the town halls where the activity will take place.

Details of the activities and the opening of the procedure for requesting and drawing invitations will be announced the same week that the activities take place, through the Serra de Tramuntana Consortium’s social networks.
