Geography

relleuThe area is quite flat. The average elevation is about 125 metres. The region is divided in three different areas:
- The area of Es Pla, where the capital town of Manacor is located, quite flat and only cut by the valley La Nou. Cereal and vineyard cultures have been grown on the calcareous reddish-brown soil.
- The sector of Sa Serra de Llevant, is characterized by its gentle elevation. The soils are weak developed and quite calcareous. It is shaped by the southwestern area of Calicant Massif, the intermediate high plateau and the mountain ranges of Llodrà and Sa Mola des Fangar.
- Sa Marina, shaped by white molasse sandstones, constitutes 4-kilometres- wide platform inclined to the sea. The calcareous soils have contributed to karstic erosion by atmospheric agents, carving a large number of caves, chasms, gullies and rockfalls.
There are many natural cavities in the area, caves as the ones of "Drach", "Hams" and the caves of the Pirate ("Coves del Pirata").
A wide range of coves embellishes Manacor's coast: Cala Moreia, Cala Morlanda, Cala Petita, Porto Cristo, Cala Anguila, Cala Mendia, s'Estany d'en Mas, Cala Falcó, Cala Varques, Cala Sequer, Cala Magraner, Cala Virgili, Cala Bota, Cala Antena, Cala Domingos and Cala Murada.
Torrent courses constitute the hydrological base of the township. The torrents of Son Caules, Conies and Son Cifre flow into the torrent Na Borges, with an hydrographic basin of 338 square kilometres, and ending into the bay of Alcúdia. The other torrents start in the interior mountains, crossing the Marina and flow into the coast.
