Ses Basses de Mortitx is a high plateau, supported by a high cliff ledge above the sea, in a remote and lonely corner of the Mallorcan northern Tramuntana. It is a part, albeit a tiny part, of this wonderful area, with its solemn and grandiose landscape and indescribable, wild beauty, flanked  to the east by the high valley of Ariant which marks the edge of the Ternelles Mountains; and to the west by the twin peaks of Puig Caragoler of Femenies and Puig Roig, and to the north by the sea.  A sea is of such intense blue, which, seen from the highest crags that silhouette this coastline, seems static. Ses Basses, a quiet spot formed by the triple crests of Puig Caragoler of Femenies (920m), Puig Ses Moles (760m) and Puig de Ses Parade. The distance between the Cases de Mortitx and Ses Basses is short and and the road is wide.
