You probably heard about the magnificent Mallorca pearls, didn’t you? In this private tour in Spain we will focus our attention on some of the lovely villages of the eastern part of the Mallorca Island, the famous Spanish natural wonder – the Caves of Drach, and finally the Mallorca Pearl factory. Porto Christo is one of the popular tourist destinations on the island. As the matter of fact its most famous attraction are the legendary and mysterious Caves of Drach.
You will learn from your private guide in Palma de Majorca that the name of town means “The Port of Christ” in Spanish. Actually it is linked to an old legend which states that many centuries ago a broken boat was found on the beach of the village, and there was a Crucifix in it. Consequently people saw it as a sign of the God’s presence and renamed their village. Most of the tourists who come to Porto Christo don’t miss a chance to fish there, as far as the village is known for its Spanish fishing features.
Any private guide in Spain would recommend you to visit the famous Caves of Drack. “Drack” means “dragon” in English, and consequently the caves are called “the Dragon caves”. As the matter of fact they consist of four separate caves and there is also a subterranean lake – Martel. It is worth noting that in the middle of the lake there is a boat with professional musicians on it, so you will have a unique opportunity to listen to a classical concert in quite an unusual setting.
Our last destination will be the famous pearl factory. Actually the pearls are not natural, but organic man-made. Specialists say that the Majorica pearls are of high quality compared to other artificial pearls. Glass is used instead of plastic as the basic material. Glass beads are dipped into a special liquid, which is made of fish scales, oil, or mother-of pearls. This liquid coves the beads and creates the effect of iridescence.
