The coast has fine-grained sand and gentle slope, which makes bathing easier for small children.
Popularly known as “La Seu”. A Gothic cathedral from the 14th-16th centuries with later additions from different styles. Outstanding large rose window and baldaquin by Gaudí.
The construction of Majorca Cathedral, often called La Seu, began in the 13th century. It is a Levantine Gothic-style cathedral (characterised by using a German-style hall layout) and it has one of the largest rose windows in the world, known as “the Gothic eye”. Its nave is also one of the highest in any European Gothic cathedral.
The Cathedral’s history is closely linked to the island’s monarchy. The origins of the most important example of Majorcan Gothic date back to the 13th century. After the conquest of Madina Mayurqa in 1229, James I, King of Aragon and Count of Barcelona, ordered the old main mosque to be consecrated to the Virgin Mary as a place for Christian worship, and also the construction of a new building, in line with the style of that period.
Cala Tuent is situated at 40 kilometres from Sóller, between Punta de sa Corda and Morro des Forat, and below the shade of Puig Major (1445 metres high), the highest mountain of the Balearic Islands.
This sea inlet continues for two hectometres toward the interior of Serra de Tramuntana, and it finishes on a semicircular beach between rocky areas with thick pine woods on the top. The sand of the coastline has also some pebbles and coarse gravel in the composition of the substract of this wonderful coastal stretch of Escorca.
The marine and underwater conditions are not safe for anchoring boats because it is exposed to the wind from the northwest-north-northeast, and this is why the coast is very dangerous for anchoring boats on a sandy ground with gravel and rocks with a depth that ranges from six to eight metres. At 5,6 nautical miles there is Port de Sóller.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The driver will have to pay attention to take the deviation toward Cala Tuent, on a sinuous and descendent road. The private car can be parked in the surroundings of this stony area.
These characteristics explain that the beach is very crowded by local visitors and tourists. In Cala Tuent finishes also sa Costera, one of the most beautiful walks you can do in Majorca. You will start out from Mirador de ses Barques, located over the Port de Sóller and walk for five hours, and it is not too difficult.
