Climbs in detail:
Info: Enjoy a route through the mountains, overlooking the sea and discovering the spectacular scenery of the Serra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO Heritage Site. A unique experience that only cycling in Majorca can offer you.
From Paguera, to Galilea to tackle the first climb. Continue from Capdellà towards Galilea, following the road towards Puigpunyent with your eyes drawn to the view of the highest peak in the region, Puig de Galatzó (1027 m), and enter this picturesque locality nestled in the mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana. Then comes another ascent, the Superna, Puigpunyent, with its traditional landscapes full of vineyards, orange trees, olive trees and almond trees, against a backdrop of mountains and wooded valleys.
A range of climbs and descents lead to the crossroads of La Granja d'Esporles, where you head towards Port d'es Canonge and follow the winding road. The route then continues towards Banyalbufar. It is one of the most picturesque towns in Majorca, where you can enjoy its ascent, Coll de Bastida, and its traditional "marjades", ancient agricultural terraces built on the steep sides of the mountains to allow local farmers to cultivate without soil erosion.
There are plenty of spots along the route to stop and take in the sea and mountain views, but one of the watchtowers that were once used to relay warnings from pirates arriving on the island is a particularly interesting place. It is the Mirador de ses Ànimes, located between Estellencs and Banyalbufar, offering you the possibility of enjoying a magnificent sunset where mountain, nature, landscape and bicycle come together to symbolize the peace and harmony of this route.
