In the previous post we mention the main caves of Mallorca, today we will talk you about other caves not so important but equally as beautiful and impressive.

Caves de Campanet of Majorca

The Campanet Caves are located on the north side of Majorca, specifically in the foothills of the spectacular Serra de Tramuntana.

These caves reach 50 meters below the surface and has many enclosures, including pools of water and a large number of stalactites and stalagmites, some of which reach more than three meters long.

An interesting fact is that the Caves of Campanet were discovered in a casual way, while a search for water was made in 1945, and it was then in 1948 that began its tourist exploitation where they discovered fossils of Myotragus, an endemic prehistoric mammal of Majorca and Menorca, and other species such as aquatic crustaceans or insects.

Caves Blanques in Majorca

The Caves Blanques are located next to the sea level, at the end of the promenade of the beach of Porto Cristo. And their name is given by the whitish color of the rock that forms them.

They were inhabited until the mid-nineteenth century, and many of these tenants were fishermen. They were not vacated until 1888, due to the fact that these formations provided the ideal conditions to become homes.

These caves were arranged by Gabriel Fornés about 1844 and they were so small that sometimes could not give shelter to the whole family.
