In Mallorca, we find a huge number of streams of all levels. Sa Fosca , among them, is considered the sixth most beautiful and characteristic stream of Europe. This stream has water almost throughout the year and it is characterized by its unique formations, its beauty and singularity. It flows into s'Entreforc, where it joins with the torrent of Pareis.
- El Torrente de Pareis is considered the most extraordinary tour of the island because of its 200m cliffs.
