Flora and fauna
The S’Albufera Nature Park, with its outstanding natural heritage, is home to two thirds of all the animal species to be found on the Balearic Islands.
No fewer than 50 archaeological sites relate the rich history of Muro and its coastline, which dates back to ancient times.
Just a short distance away lies the Talaiotic burial ground of Son Real, taking visitors back in time to the Iron Age and situated on an estate of the same name that is open to the public.
The neighbouring town of Alcúdia is the site of the Roman city of Pol•lèntia and the Roman Theatre. It was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1974, together with the medieval wall that surrounds the town.
The local cuisine is renowned for its mouth-watering flavours and variety. Traditional dishes include frit de porc (stir-fried pork, potatoes and peppers), tumbet (Majorca’s version of ratatouille), arròs brut (a meat and vegetable rice dish) and sopes mallorquines (vegetables and meat simmered slowly with bread to soak up the stock).
