Long Description:
"The Serra de Tramuntana is a mountain range running southwest–northeast which forms the northern backbone of the Spanish island of Mallorca. It is also the name given to the comarca of the same area. On 27 June 2011, The Tramuntana Range was awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO as an area of great physical and cultural significance.

The climate in the Tramuntana Range is significantly wetter than the rest of the island, recording as much as 1507 mm (59.3 inches) of precipitation per year, in comparison with some other parts of the island where annual rainfall is less than 400mm (15 inch). link

Although this area is the wettest part of the island, most rivers like this one run dry for many months of the year.

This is a minor road off the main road Ma 11 and gives access to houses and farms near the seaside resort of Port de Soller. Traffic is very light on this road and the road is also used by walkers who want to avoid busy roads into the resort. They have a slight advantage over vehicles when the river is high as there is a metal pedestrian bridge next to the road.
