(1.445 m.). This is the highest mountain on the island. From it one has a view towards the south of all the plain and villages, to the north the immensity of the sea. On a clear day one can see Menorca, Ibiza and Cabrera, and here are those who claim even to have seen Catalonia. The point of departure is from Son Torrella whose houses situated at over 1.000 meters above sea level, almost border on the Soller-Lluch road. It is necessary to obtain a special permit for the ascent.
ASCENT OF PUIG DE MASSANELLA (1.349 m.). This is Majorca’s second mountain. Although the ascent can be made by several parts, the most practical starts from El Guix and Coma Freda, a state near the Inca-Lluch road and about
2 kms. before reaching the Monastery whose buildings are situated at a height of 500 mtrs. The path has been marked out by the local Majorcan Touring Club and the ascent can be done in fairly good conditions. From the summit we can behold the huge mass of Puig Major and easterly, the immense sea at the south, nothing interrupts the view of the plain with a great number of tiny villages.
Because of the easy access we recommend this excursion.
