Spain's King Felipe and Queen Letizia

Spain's King Felipe and Queen Letizia

Spain's King Felipe and Queen Letizia have visited a UNESCO world heritage site with their daughters.

The couple - who have been enjoying a well-earned holiday on the island of Majorca - visited the beautiful Serra de Tramuntana mountain range with their daughters Princess Leonor, eight, and Princess Sofia, seven.

The trip is believed to have made quite an impact on the recently-crowned King, who was returning to the island for the first time since his coronation.

According to Hello! magazine, Felipe described the area as a "piece of heaven on Earth".

The royal family were then taught the cultural and physical significance of the landscape and the types of rock formation.

They were also shown a map of the areas affected by fires that consumed the region last summer, after which the King and Queen greeted volunteers helping with the reforestation of the damaged area.

Felipe, Letizia and their daughters arrived in Majorca last week and are due to leave in mid-August.

It is thought that the trip will be the last time the family will be making official public visits while on holiday together.
