Students from Year 8 at Bellver International College recently went to visit the nature park at Mondrago on the east coast of the island.
It was a long journey from Palma to Mondrago, taking more than one hour by bus. When we arrived there we met by our nature guide, Biel, who was a very knowledgeable and kind person.
We were shown the magnificent coastline, the secret Guardian’s Shelter, the beach and the nature of that wonderful place.
The Guardian’s Shelter was a place made to protect the island during World War II.
Our guide told us that the coastline had once consisted of many lagoons before it has taken up its present structure. We saw lots of fossils of creatures that had died millions of years ago and were now trapped in the rocks. We also saw how the waves and currents had eroded the coastline.
It was a lovely short tiring trip, where we learned lots of facts and had lots of fun.
