Caves of Campanet

POINTS OF INTEREST / Caves of Campanet
Caves of Campanet

The Caves of Campanet are situated on the southern slopes of the Sant Miquel hill in the Serra de Tramuntana in the north of Majorca. They have a surface area of approximately 3,200 square metres, are at a depth of 50 metres and have created a cavity of nearly 16,000 cubic metres. The tour, which lasts about 40 minutes, takes you on a pathway of nearly through different passages and chambers, some of which have small water pools.These chambers are known by such romantic names as Sala Romántica (the Romantic Chamber), Sala del Lago (the Lake Chamber), Castillo Encantado (Enchanted Castle), Sala de la Palmera (the Palm Tree Chamber), Cascada Sonora (Musical Waterfall) etc. These caves are noted for the fineness and richness of their calcareous deposits in the form of stalactites and stalagmites. Apart from their natural decorative qualities, different aspects have attracted the attention of scientists and naturalists. For example, whilst work has being carried out to prepare the caves for visitors, the fossilised remains of Myotragus balearicus were found, a species of goat-like bovidae endemic from Majorca and Minorca, extinct 4,000 years ago following the arrival of man on the islands. The caves have inspired painters such as Casimir Tarrassó who dedicated a series of signed oils to them in 1948; and poets such as Bartomeu Guasp i Gelabert who composed the ode "Caves of Sant Miquel" (1949). They have also been the setting for various films.

Coll Baix

The route begins in Victoria, in the north of the island and following a forest rail hikers will first see a lookout point called “Ses Tres Creus”, which offers a scenic viewpoint over the Bay of Pollença. The hike then passes through Talaia d’Alcúdia (445 m), and then leads you to the hill road of Es Coll Baix. On the mountain peak you can see ruins from an old 16th century tower destroyed in 1936. You can also see two buildings where soldiers sought protection during the air raid alarms of the Spanish Civil war. This unspoilt beach is one of Mallorca’s hidden gems and is well worth the hike.

Torrent de Pareis

Torrent de Pareis

Experienced and fit hikers with walking boots will enjoy this difficult and somewhat dangerous hike that leads them to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The best season is from May to September, but even then the canyon may be full of water from a heavy rainfall, requiring you to swim through some parts! It is slightly easier to hike uphill from Sa Calobra to Escorca because the climbing passages are easier in the ascent, but you can also start from Escorca and have the bus from Sa Calobra bring you back up. There are ropes left in the climbing parts, but it is better to bring your own in case. If you’re in for a physical challenge with amazing views this hike is for you, but be careful! There have been accidents and recues for inexperienced hikers here!
