Description

The Cova des Pont (Bridge Cave) was named afte a bridge, which was built in front of the entrance to reach the cave. Before there was an 8m deep drop to the entrance. This cave was discovered in 1884 and developed as a show cave in 1897, because of an agriculture fair in Manacor. It stayed open for some years until it was finally sold and closed. Today only little remains of the development.
