Cal Des Burgit 22
Caló des Burgit; This is the last unspoiled beach in the Nature Reserve including Mondragó, away from mass tourism in a natural setting, surrounded by a forest of pines and low cliffs. It is a small creek 18 m long and 15 m wide. There are some stone walls along the left side of the coast, forming a series of steps to limit access to a property inside a house. To get there you must go to the Natural Park of Mondragó where is the information center on the beach of Font de Sa n'Alís. Before arriving, the road forks and has to follow the first departure from the right towards the beach Trencada Sa Barca. As soon as you get to the hotel, is to continue going along Trencada Sa Barca until it reaches a sort of parking in the shade. From where you leave to get to the beach, 300 meters along a path that runs between pine trees.

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.
The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.
Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".
Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.
Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.
In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
