Les Fonts Ufanes

The farm known as Gabellí Petit is a beautiful spot near Campanet that regularly offers the magnificent spectacle of underground waters coursing to the surface in the midst of a verdant grove of oak trees. In 2005, the Balearic Government acquired the emblematic 44.91-hectare farmstead called Gabellí Petit, home to Les Fonts Ufanes, which was declared a natural monument in 2001 and is part of the public heritage. This phenomenon usually takes place after a period of more or less intense rains that generate a spontaneous water course that can vary between 3,000 to 100,000 litres per second. The discharge is produced when the impermeable layers of clay are saturated and impede the circulation of underground waters, causing them to flow to the surface. The stream is fed by the waters of the aquifers in the zone (Sa Pobla, Pollença, Campanet and Búger) and the Albufera Nature Park. Plans are in place for the farm to become a part of the future Tramuntana Mountains nature park, which currently boasts 62,677 hectares.
