Welcome to Banyalbufar

The village, 8km northeast of Estellencs, was founded by the Arabs in the 10th century; the name Banyalbufar means ‘built next to the sea’ in Arabic. All around the village are carved-out, centuries-old, stone-walled farming terraces, known as ses marjades, which form a series of steps down to the sea. They are kept moist by mountain well water that gurgles down open channels and is stored in cisterns. Just west of town along the coast road is the Torre des Verger, one of the most recognisable symbols of Mallorca.

After meeting all the participants at the meeting point, you go up to the Fita del Ram from the church to the monument and panoramic viewpoint of the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the emblematic Post Road. This is a path of medieval roots dating from 1401 and connecting the municipalities of Esporles and Banyalbufar. Restored in 1999, it is part of the Road Network of the Dry Stone Route. On the way you will pass by the hermitage of Maristela.Once past this place, the walkers face a small challenge to get to the houses of Son Ferrà since the section is marked by a climb of medium grade. However, the effort is worthwhile as the landscape is very pleasant among Mediterranean trees, pines and holm oaks as well as the beautiful view of the Sierra.In the last section the group heads back to Esporles, the starting point, through the Huerto de Son Tries to finish, optionally, in a bar in this cozy town and have a refreshing drink accompanied by a good Tapa to regain strength and share the highlights of this excursion in Mallorca.
