Itinerary

One leaves the Ca’s Curial Estate via the lavender path which goes to the square of Sóller. One opens the crossing gates and go straight ahead until reaching an asphalted street and then turning right and continue on the way until coming to a crossroads where the football pitch is located. Here one goes left walking parallel to the stream of Fornalutx until reaching the vicinities of some washing places near the bridge of Can Rave. At this point one comes across a crossroads and one must turn left. After a steep slope one runs into a fork. One chooses the path on the right and go straight ahead then ignoring the paths which appear on the left of Ses Marjades and after that of Sa Capelleta and the Balitx old road. Already near a stream and on a sharp bend one leaves the path fit for vehicle to follow the cobbled path which rises slowly between orange trees and olive groves until reaching the village of Binibassí.

On the left of said village one keeps going uphill on a cobbled path passing via a water mill and leaving behind us a parapet, pines, holm oaks and a few olive trees until reaching a spot where one must turn right and pass another wall behind which a gentle descent starts.

From here onwards the path becomes ever more spectacular and passes a slight depression with the silhouette of Penyal des Midgia in the distance whilst one can discern the cemetery of Fornalutx closer by. The lane becomes an asphalted path which between olive groves takes you to Fornalutx and from there to Plaza de Espanya which is situated near the parish church.

From here one now goes on the way via the calle Major and that of Sa Font. One leaves behind the tower of Can Arbona (The Town Hall) and one crosses the major stream via a bridge. After the first bend one comes across a fence and a few m before it on the right the cobbled path starts called Es Creuer. This path allows you to gain height rapidly thereby arriving at the Monnáber road which one have to follow downwards until reaching the little village of Biniaraix. One follows calle Sant Josep passing Plaza de la Concepció and then going down Calle Sant Guillem until turning right via that of Santa Catalina. At the end of the latter one turns right following the indications which lead you to cross the Biniaraix orchard to come out onto an asphalted path which leads you to the road joining Sóller with Fornalutx. The village of Binibassí comes into your eye line which one is then heading for after going for around a hundred m along the road in the direction of Sóller and turning right. From the village one can return to Sóller along the same path with which one started this excursion.
