Cultural heritage

Over the centuries, sa Dragonera was a strategic point in the navigation of the first Phoenician civilisations, the landing of the Christian colonisation, constant attacks by pirates, smuggling, the traditional uses of natural resources (falconry, “orxelleria”, basketry and charcoal production) and even real estate speculation.

Despite seeming inhospitable and wild, this small island is full of life. Its settlement has left behind pictorial traces over the centuries, such as lighthouses, watchtowers, lime kilns, wells and freshwater caves full of ceramics. Visiting the island is a temporal journey where you can learn about the passage of its people and the constant reinterpretation of the use of its resources, according to each historical context.
