Today's route starts in Cala Morell, where your taxi driver will drop you, and takes you into an area dotted with ancient dwellings from the Talaiotic period. Surrounded by typical Mediterranean plants - rosemary, rockrose and chamomile - you make your way toward a dry limestone plateau, where the Tramuntana wind blows continuously and fields are protected by high walls. No modern houses in sight just “barracas”, strange pyramidal structures from prehistoric times. Your route ends in the pretty port town of Ciutadella.
You have the option to shorten the route 4 km by taking the bus from Cales Piques.
Challenge: 18 - 14 km / 11- 8,5 mi , 6 / 4 hrs, 250 / 200 m ascent and descent.
