The real inhabitants of Formentor
The Cap de Formentor – surely nature at its most dazzling; a mountainous peninsular which forms the crowning glory of Mallorca’s tramuntana mountain range, and its Northern most point. And while thousands of thrill-hunting tourists hit the winding roads of this most stunning of landscapes each year, it’s the mountain goats who can truly lay claim to this unique stretch of paradise.
With their incredible sense of balance and tendency to traverse the steepest of cliffs and the most hazardous rocky terrains, the goats which live wild within Mallorca’s mountainous landscape never fail to impress me; that is at least when I manage to catch a glimpse of them. For these wild animals are notoriously shy; one blink and they’re gone. But with a bit of luck and some respectful distance, you can catch a sight of these beautiful animals offset against what must surely be some of the most incredible landscapes in Europe.
