Its highest peak is the Puig Major, which, at its 1,445 metres is the highest mountain in the Balearic Islands. The Serra de Na Burguesa is the southernmost portion of the Tramuntana Range.The climate in the Tramuntana Range is significantly wetter than the rest of the island, recording as much as 1507 mm (59.3 inch) of precipitation per year, in comparison with some other parts of the island where annual rainfall is less than 400mm (15 inch). It is also cooler due to the height and a few days of snow are not unusual during winter.
