The Tramuntana Range -
Lluc Monastery and the Cuber Reservoir

The Tramuntana is an imposing  range of limestone mountains stretching along the north coast of Mallorca. The highest point is at Puig Major, overlooking the Cuber reservoir and standing at 1,432 m above sea level. For the most part the vegetation consists of pine forest and steep, scrub-covered slopes.

To a large degree it is this very steepness and relative inaccessibility that provides a refuge for birds of prey, including the emblematic Black Vulture.
