Favàritx Lighthouse

The lighthouse side of the moon

Called Tramontana, Minorca's northern zone is a wild, desertlike region with a nearly lunar feel at times, thanks to hills and mountains of dark slate stone. Crowning these hills is the Favàritx Lighthouse, to which the road leading up is surrounded by a fauna- and flora-rich environment created by a natural lake. Furthermore, there's a legend associated with the lighthouse - it's said that if you visit on moonlit nights and step in the puddles that form around it, you'll get energy and fertility from the moon and the sea.
