start from Puigpunyent, on the SW part of Mallorca. From Puigpunyent
follow the road signs towards Esporles. Just as you are leaving
town, you se another road sign next to a small utility house.
Here you walk straight up the small road.
minutes you can see in front of you the large Son Fortesa estate.
The road is circling the tall walls, and at the other side look for
the small wood signs that leads you into the woods, and uphill.
The route is
part a track and part a forest road. It is easy to follow. The first
part is actually the old road to Estrellencs. Making the road
distance to Palma a lot shorter than it is today. Also, as the
pharmacy was in Puigpunyent, the shortest route to buy medicine.
The route to
Estrellencs is not marked, and we follow the marked route that leads
us back to Puigpunyent in a big circle.
walking time is about 4 hours. It is a very hot area during the
summer month. A sunny day during spring, autumn or winter, is
the best time to do this walk.
