NAME: NORTH PALMA – FORMENTOR CAPE

This route is rated as a moderately difficult route by the continuous curves in its course. It is one of the most stunning routes in the island of Majorca.

We will be able to enjoy an unimaginable environment in which we will cross part of the Serra de Tramuntana Mountains, with stopovers in the most beautiful viewpoints and arriving to the sea.

A total of 229 kilometers offers this route. Its starting point is located in the capital of the island, the city of Palma.

From Palma we head towards Valldemossa, a mythical village and culturally very important on the island in which we cannot miss to taste the unique flavor of the ‘’coca de patata'' and in which is a must to visit the Cartoixa, an old monastery at the heart of Valldemossa where Frederic Chopin the composer spent a winter with his lover, the writer George Sand.

After this forced stop, we must continue the journey towards Sóller. The curves now take center stage on a road that runs near the coast where we will have the opportunity to enjoy outstanding cliffs.

From Sóller we will go to the Port of Sóller, where we will find a good range of cuisine to regain strength. Hence, we will go to the municipality of Escorca and visit the well known Monastery of Lluch. Before visiting Lluch we will pass the two largest reservoirs in the island, the Gorg Blau and Cuber, located on a beautiful valley at the foot of the mountains.

Our next destination is the Cape of Formentor, from the lighthouse we will enjoy excellent views. The village of Alcudia, with its Roman remains, and Can Picafort, a village, will close down our path towards Palma.
