We saw a lot of towers made of stones on the beaches and at Cap de Barbaria.
People say that if you express a wish while building your tower, your wish will come true when the wind will make the tower fall...
I don't know whether this is true, but I made a stone tower too... just in case! :)
In the north of the island are some salt flats...in the midday sun, it is too white and bright to look at, but the scene becomes quite beautiful in the late afternoon. We stopped to take photos, and came across these strange beasts...I have no idea what they are for, so if anyone else does...let me know!
Esglesia de Sant Francesc Xavier
The most important church of Formentera was built in 1726 as a fortified church with thick walls and small windows. And it had been equipped with canons to protect the inhabitants of the island against the attacks of pirates.
Monument of Jules Verne
Jules Verne mentioned Formentera in his novel 'Of on a Comet'. The author describes a launching platform for an adventures journey on the rocks of Cap de la Mola.
Grateful for the mentioning of their island, the inhabitants of Formentera built a monument in honour of Jules Verne.
Isla de Formentera
"Es Arenals, Isla de Formentera - Platja Mitjorn"
The best beach for swimming on the island.
"La Mola, Isla de Formentera"
Worth a vist, the highest point on the island. Fantastic views from the lighthouse & also on the way back down. La Mola hosts a small market on a Wednesday & Sunday when the place gets very busy, but apart from that it is generally quiet.
After passing through the small village there is a small windmill on the right. It is said that Bob Dylan lived in one of these windmills for several months.
