Coll des Vent is a trip into Na Bourguesa
mountains. They are situated near Palma de Mallorca. This area is a
Natural park. First you need to find the road leading into Na
Burguesa maintains. It is numbered PMV 1043. It starts in the
Son Dureta area, where you have the cross over at the motorway
PM-20. Right at the corner you have a military camp. Read the
yellow kilometer stones, and drive until you get to the one with
marking: 6 Km.
Here you can park the car, and on the south side
of the road you see a track leading into the forest. 100 meters
up the track you find a concrete mast. Here you follow the track
to the right. After 1 km. on a small trail, you get to a forest
road. There is a old ruin here. Turn right, and walk down this road. Further
down it will join the road leading to the gate. Take the
opposite direction. You now get to the next cross road. Follow
it to the right. 300 meters further down, a track is
leading left, ignore it and walk straight on. Then ignore the
track leading right shortly after. You should now see a wreck of
a car in the right side of the road (very little left). Also
there are some red paint marks on the stones.
The small forest road you are on, is getting more and more narrow,
ending as a track, however follow the route as drawn on the map
to Mirador n'Alzamora. Here is a ruin and a view over the
valley. A good place to have some lunch.
You can take the same way back, or make it a tour round Puig d'en
Bou. Follow the track as made out on the map. You will at one
time have to cross a dried out river. It is a bit steep here. At
Coll des Pastors, you get on a proper forest road. Follow
this as directed on the map, and return to where you started fro
The mirador. Here is
a small ruin, a great view, and a good place to have lunch.
