The Corniche and Serra de Tramuntana trail

The Corniche and Serra de Tramuntana trail

By car, 185 km, 1 day

The largest of the Balearic Islands is also one of the most popular tourist sites in Europe. A must visit is Palma and its bay, the historic centre with its cathedral, and its old 18C houses. The west coast of Mallorca leads to magical sites like the Ricardo Roca watchtower where the view descends very steeply onto limpid inlets, or the Ses Animes watchtower where the observation tower allows you to admire the Dragonera island and Sóller harbour. The beautiful road of Sa Calobra descends towards the sea.

On one side of the cloisters, the 18C pharmacy holds a fine collection of jars and boxes. The cells occupied by George Sand and Chopin offer lovely views across the surrounding carob, olive and almond tree plantations that surround the village. A small museum houses a collection of xylographic wood engravings. Chopin Festival in August.
