It was a smiling summer in Arabic Gardens when King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain along with their two daughters, The Princess of Asturias, Leonor, and Infanta Sofia, visited the Jardines de Alfàbia (Gardens of Alfàbia) in the Sierra de Tramuntana as their first family outing in Palma. The family arrived on the Balearic Island last week for the summer break and we were expecting them to step out this week.
The Sierra de Tramuntana was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in the category of Cultural Landscape in 2011. The beautiful heritage is a 90 km long mountain range running southwest–northeast forming the northern backbone of Mallorca. The site is 25 minutes drive away from Spanish Royal Family’s summer residence in Palma – Marivent Palace.
The Gardens of Alfàbia are located in the heart of the Tramuntana Mountain Range. The garden reflects the impact of Arabic culture in Mallorca with a touch of English landscape. The garden area was established in 1229 during the Moorish rule and features numerous fountains and waterworks to create a charming atmosphere. The gardens are one of the most iconic tourist site of the region.
For the last two years, the summer photograph of the Spanish Royal family has taken a new form. King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia instead of standing in front of Marivent Palace now take both Leonor and Sofia to different tourist attractions in the region. It gives the public access to their summer break and also highlights the tourism of the region. After visiting a few places in the region, the family retreats for a private time to a location never disclosed.
Dressed in colourful summer attires, Queen Letizia, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia with King Felipe VI seemed to enjoy their time together in Mallorca. The family will be in the region for a few more weeks before Leonor and Sofia head for the next phase of their education. They stopped and posed for photographs which were released by the Palace Communication team on their social media channel.
