The Spanish Royal Family held a series of engagements on Wednesday in a natural reserve located on Palma de Mallorca.
According to a report by Royal Central, the visit was about spirituality and nature. Balearic authorities welcomed King Felipe, Queen Letizia, and their daughters to the park.
The Royal Family entered the Ca s’Amitger Building to participate in a tour of the ecosystem within the Serra de Tramuntana Natural Park. Susana Liobet, the park’s director, escorted them through the building.
The main mountainous formation on Palma Island is the Serra de Tramuntana. It is mostly made from limestone and has given Palma its unique appearance.
They then walked to the Lluc Sanctuary Basilica where they were greeted by Sebastia Talltavull, Archbishop of Palma, and other local authorities. In the presence of the Royal family, the Archbishop led a moment’s prayer in the Basilica. The entire family signed the guestbook outside the Sanctuary and was given a book.
The Basilica, the island’s spiritual center, is a popular tourist destination. You can find accommodation, recreation areas, and camping spots here.
They ended their walk at the third mystery monument and took pictures in front of the stunning view of the park.
After that, King Felipe and Queen Letizia, as well as Princess Leonor, Infanta Sofia, visited Escorca where they were greeted warmly by the municipal council. They signed the Guest Book in the Room of Honour of the Municipality and the day’s activities were over.
This will be the last time the public can see Princess Leonor before her departure for Wales. She is expected to begin her UWC Atlantic courses on the 30th.
These events are part of the Balearic Islands’ royal agenda, which is for them a fixture of their summer vacations. Queen Letizia presented prizes to Dame Judi Dench. King Felipe met political figures and will present the King’s Sailing Cup prize winner on Saturday.
