Finca pública de Son Real
The Son Real public estate is located in the municipality of Santa Margalida, on the northeast coast of Mallorca. The estate covers an area of 395 hectares and, in addition to its outstanding natural and scenic values, it has a very important archaeological heritage. The most outstanding monument is the necropolis of Son Real, a group of funerary constructions from the Talayotic period (7th century BCE).
In the estate there are about 2000 metres of very well preserved coastline. The coastline is mainly rocky, with small sandy beaches and dunes. The vegetation is predominantly garrigue and pine with the presence of heather, rosemary, wild olive, mastic and strawberry trees, among others. Son Real is an ideal place for bird watching. Stone-curlews, hoopoes, nightingales and warblers, especially the Balearic warbler (Sylvia balearica), an endemic species that breeds in the farm.
The agricultural landscape is dominated by cereal, carob, fig and almond crops, and the animals raised on the farm are of indigenous breeds. A number of constructions and mining sites highlight the ethnological values of Son Real from medieval to contemporary times: "marès" (sandstone) and sand quarries, old paths and piloting towers built for underwater exercises in the bay of Alcúdia during the post-war period. The signposted itineraries will allow us to visit Son Real and the most outstanding points of interest (archaeological remains, beach, shelter...).
