D FERRERIES 01

Menorca is infinite, immense, you never finish it. In order to map this immensity our ancestors had to divide the infinite island into regions that staggered the administrative divisions of the terms. Tramuntana, Migjorn, Mitjania, Favaritx, Marina…

The Tramuntana region, shared with Ciutadella, received a special name in Ferreries: sa Sibèria. On February 15, the Meteorological Service of Menorca published a map with the minimum temperatures for the day. Ciutadella, 4.3 degrees Celsius. Fornells, 4.6. Maó, 3. Sant Lluís, 7,1. Es Migjorn, 7.9. Ferreries, 0.3 degrees Celsius! 7.6 degrees difference with the village next door! Ferreries has a personality of its own that has been reflected in the passage and in the words. Sa Base Americana, Santa Àgueda, s’Enclusa, sa Siberia, sa Rovellada … Do you now understand the name that links us to one of the coldest places in Russia, in one of the coldest places on the planet?
