Excursion to the ethnological park of Caimari, a free open-air museum
Enjoy this authentic outdoor museum, just before entering the village of Caimari itself. This is an obvious place to start a cultural route of Caimari, as the park beautifully displays ancient life in Mallorca and in the Tramuntana mountains.
The ethnological park in Caimari is small, but exhibits some very interesting constructions matching those used back in ancient times of hunting in the Tramuntana. You can see a typical hunting hutt/cabin and a snow house used for storing water.
Entrance to the ethnological park is free and open all day. You enter through a small entrance in the hedge.
