Cap Formentor


Cap de Formentor ist das östliche Ende der Halbinsel Formentor auf Mallorca. Die Mallorquiner nennen die Halbinsel auch Treffpunkt der Winde.

Cap de Formentor, die eindrucksvolle Steilküste mit dem höchsten Punkt Fumart 384 Meter über dem Meeresspiegel, und die dazugehörigen Buchten wie Cala Fiquera, Cala Murta und Cala Pi de la Posada liegen am nördlichsten Punkt der Balearen-Insel Mallorca.

Die 13,5 Kilometer lange Straße, die von Port de Pollença zum Cap de Formentor führt, wurde von dem italienischen Ingenieur Antonio Paretti gebaut, der auch für die berühmtere Straße nach Sa Calobra verantwortlich zeichnete.

Die vier Winde von Cap Formentor

Die Winde, die sich hier treffen, nannten schon die Ureinwohner seit Jahrhunderten Tramuntana, Ponenet, Migjorn und Llevant, die sogenannten “vier großen Brüder”, und ihre “Cousins” Gregal, Mestral, Llebetx und Xaloc. Die Winde sind auch vielfach der Namensgeber der Landschaften und Gebirge, wie zum Beispiel der Sierra Tramuntana oder der Sierra de Llevant.

Auf einer Insel wie Mallorca, die bis weit ins 20. Jahrhundert hinein vorwiegend vom Fischfang und der Landwirtschaft lebte, war es lebenswichtig, die Winde gut zu kennen, z.B. welcher Wind Regen, Hitze oder Wind bringt.
