Easy

There are a number of different routes we can take around the village of Es Capdella and the estate lands of the Finca Galatzo, just outside the village. Many different variations make up a number of excellent walks of different lengths and duration. This is a sleepy, rural corner of the island, which has fabulous views of the conical-shaped Puig Galatzo. The whole area is particularly spectacular in February when the almond trees are in full bloom.

This particular circular route takes us from the village along country lanes and rural tracks between casitas and fields and into the Galatzo estate with its magnificent 'Possessio' Manor House in the shadow of Puig Galatzo. Here we walk easily along broad dirt tracks to the Finca, where we get an insight into the agricultural workings of the estate's past, and a peak of its fabulous courtyard - a feature of all significant old Mallorcan homes. Let you imagination drift back many years and its not difficult to imagine a different life, a different pace....

Highlights

The Finca Galatzo, peace, tranquillity and a sense of years gone by....
