Itinerary

Between Plaza de la Constituciò and the Sóller train station Calle de Isabel II begins where this route commences. Before reaching the road one has the possibility of visiting the convent of Los Misioneros de los Sagrados Corazones. In front of the cross one takes the old Palma path until reaching the roundabout where one continues on the way in the direction of Palma. Just a few m later one finds an asphalted path on the right (km 29.9). It is the Pujol d’en Banya path which ascends rapidly whilst one observes on her right the Puig d’en Ramis and Ses Tres Creus monument. One ignores two detours on the right and walks parallel to the Palma road. After a bend with steep ascent a cobbled track appears with the remains of the old Ciutat path. One resumes the cement path and almost immediately one carefully crosses the train tracks.

In this way one reaches the end of a cart track where the houses of Pujol de sa Banya are situated. Right alongside is the Son Castelló path whose initial part provides excellent views over the Sóller valley with the town at one feet. The bridle path now becomes a cart track which transforms into a bridle path once again. The olive groves alternate with some holm oaks and pines whilst the strips of land sheds and other dry stone elements draw your attention.

One leaves behind several roads which go down to Sóller following the Castelló path in the direction of Deià going round the houses of Can Jeroni Gros and continuing via the cart track which takes you to Ca’s Xorc and S’Heretat. Between the strips of land and olive groves hidden by the mountains of Puig de Sa Bassa one reaches the houses of Can Carabasseta and the oratory of Son Castellò currently in a poor state of repair.

Going round the oratory on the left one follows the cobbled track which takes you to the houses of Can Prohom and Can Mico. Leaving on the right the mark of the pine of Ensaïmada one goes down Es Gravet and walk above the houses of Sa Casa Nova and Can Miquelet.

After crossing an asphalted path one attains the lands of Deià where one has the option of visiting on the right the fountain of Ses Mentides and then continuing with a short ascent which takes you to the village of Son Coll. A descent now starts which continues via the interior of the urbanization of the caves of Can Puigserver and which comes out onto the Sóller-Deià road at kilometric point 60,250 not far from the houses of Ca l’Abat. From here one can reach the village of Deià via the road or the paths of Sa Pesta or Sa Vinyeta signposted on the road itself and with a slightly longer route but also more attractive and safer.
