Nature

The isolated location of Fartaritx led to unique lifeforms with significant endemic flora and unique plants. There are various orchids and over ten species of ferns. There also the remains of the stone-oak forest, of an ancient autochthonous forest, as well as rare tree species such as the yew, the pine tree (Pi de sa Pedrissa), or the cedar (Cedre de Massanella).

It borders the municipality of Escorca, the country of Fartàritx d'en Vila, Molinet, Minergran and Mola.
