Fornalutx rewards those who simply wander. Begin with the lanes around the central Plaça d’Espanya at the top of the road and pop into the ajuntament with its cool courtyard dominated by a palm tree. Outside, water gurgles cheerfully along one of several irrigation channels. You can follow the course of the town stream east past fine houses and thick greenery, or climb the stairs heading north out of the town from the Església de la Nativitat de Nostra Senyora. Keep heading up the steps, and if you take a left fork on Carrer de Tramuntana, you will eventually make it to a dead end and the last house in the village; keep going straight up and you can head off up into the hills.
