TOUR 11. the CAVES DEL DRACH.

.

The Caves del Drach  are four great caves that are located in the island of Majorca, Balearic Islands, Spain. They are in the municipality of Manacor, near the locality of Porto Cristo. The caves extend to a depth of 25 m, reaching 2.4 km in length. The four caves, called Black Cave, White Cave, Cave of Luis Salvador, and Cave of the French, are connected to each other. The caves have formed by water being forced through the entrance from the Mediterranean Sea, and some researchers think the formation may date back to Miocene. There is an underground lake situated in the caves called Martel Lake, which is about 1150 m in length and 30 m in width.

TOUR 11. SES COVES DES DRACH.

.

Les coves del Drac són quatre grans coves que es troben a l’illa de Mallorca, dins el municipi de Manacor, prop de la localitat de Portocristo. Les coves s’estenen fins a una profunditat de 25 m i arriben a 2,4 km de longitud. Les quatre coves, anomenades la Cova Negra, la Cova Blanca, la Cova de Lluís Salvador i la Cova dels Francesos, estan connectades entre si. Les coves s’han format per acció de l’entrada de l’aigua de la mar Mediterrània, i alguns estudiosos consideren que la seva formació podria remuntar-se al Miocè. Allotgen un gran llac subterrani, l’anomenat Llac Martel, d’uns 115 m de longitud i 30 m d’amplària.
