Excursions recommended for 2012 are:
Excursion: DEIA – THE PAINTERS’ ROUTE
Description: The route takes a path along various bays (Es Canyeret, Cala Deia) that are typical of the North coast of Majorca. The turquoise green of the sea and the grey tones of the rocks give a special ambiance to this area. The coast around Deia is traditionally a hideaway for personalities from the art world (writers, painters, sculptors, musicians etc.) looking for peace and inspiration. The light, the colours and the erratic shapes of the village of Deia, with the mountainous stretch of the Teix at its shoulders, hypnotise the walker as you explore the valley. The return journey takes us along part of the ‘castle’ path, the old trade route used to reach Sóller.

Excursion: DEIÁ – TORRE DE SA PEDRISSA

From the heights of Can Prohom we make a detour to Alconàsser and enter the finca of Muleta, through the old olive groves. We then reach Sa Possessió de Muleta, with its fascinating architectural features still intact despite the passage of time.
