Dragonera island, Cala en Basset and the tower
Mallorca

In the west coast of Mallorca next to San Telmo the mountain range called Tramuntana has its first steps. Here you can enjoy a fantastic view of Dragonera island so called to seem the silhouette of an old dragon, some mountain routes as popular as the ancient monastery La Trapa's ascending by walking, or the little hidden path that follows the line of coast until its arrival to the old XVIth century defense tower and the stones beach both called "d'En Basset", family name of one of the knights that arrived on 1229 to Mallorca with the Jame's the First's fleet and that's why he received this lands in the island as payment to his helpful to the king. The tower was modified and used for the last time during the spanish civil war (1936-39) as a radio station.

As a little joke you can find ten times my little daughter Claudia...can you see her all of them?

More About Europe

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. Text by Steve Smith.
