Plants of the Balearic Islands: The Balearic Islands are rich in wild plants and this book has become an important source of reference for those wishing to find out more about the most common, characteristic and interesting varieties which adorn the islands’ beautiful and varied scenery. It is intended for the general public: the hiker, the amateur botanist, the nature-lover and the ordinary person who simply wants to know what he sees as he strolls through the woods. The contents include Woods & Scrub, Fields & Roadsides, Mountains & Walls, Banks & Streams, the Coastal Region and an Index of Scientific Names.
La Cartoixa de Valldemossa: The charterhouse was founded as a royal residence and later converted into a monastery of the Carthusian order. The monastery existed from 1399 until its secularisation in 1835 under the Ecclesiastical Confiscations of Mendizábal. Now it’s open to the public to showcase the antique things of the ancient times in an incredible way which make its a real enjoyment for all age groups.
