Albufera Nature reserve in Majorca
S’Albufera nature Reserve is the most important wetland in the Balearic Islands. It was formed about 100.000 years ago when the shore line came into being probably during the interglacial period. There have been various attempts made to drain it, with main objective being to prevent malaria. The plots of land under cultivation (marjals) on the periphery are the result of a nineteenth century draining programme.
