There is a lighthouse on each tip of the island, they are called Tramuntana and Llebeig.

There is a small museum in the Tramuntana lighthouse that relates the history of lighthouses and the lighthouse keepers that dwelt in them.

The Llebeig tower is home to an iron canon.

 

The D’es Moro cave reminds us that Sa Dragonera was home to Muslim pirates who used it for shelter and a base when raiding Mallorca.
