Carrying on, down the east coast from Porto Cristo, we arrived at the sleepy fishing village of Porto Colom. Set on another natural inlet, the village is one of many Spanish villages which claim to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. It was once the main port to the town of Felanitx some miles inland.
Not so easy to miss are the large Lentisc shrubs (Pistacia lentiscus). As the Latin name suggests, these plants are related to the delicious Pistachio nut.
