Property for sale in this area is very desired as well.  On the Cap de Formentor, there are steps, paths, walls as well as a lighthouse, which had been made from the mountain cliffs in 1892. This was done under the orders of the poet Miquel i Llobera, who had the ownership of the peninsula. When the poet died, the cape was distributed into several parts and sold. It was later in 1928 that an Argentinian named Adan Diehl decided to construct the Hotel Barceló Formentor. Diehl was a patron of art and wanted to create this hotel as a striking work of art.
