This itinerary takes you to the highest point of Alcúdia’s peninsula. On reaching the top of the Talaia (446m) we are rewarded with great panoramic views. Our route runs through the public estate of la Victòria that separates the bays of Pollença and Alcúdia.
ROUTE: 4,92 km
RECCOMENDATIONS: Take water.
We will start at the Ermita de la Victòria, ascending a forest path towards the Talaia.
After 15 minutes and a closed bend, we will see some steps cut into the rock on our left, this is the “Sa Penya Roja” route. We will ignore this and carry along the same path we are on. After a bend to the left we will see a gate; we must climb the sty. From this point the pine grove loses density and we can see across both bays (Pollença and Alcúdia).
Now the going gets a bit tougher as the incline is steeper, and soon we find ourselves at the foot of a cliff, the lane shows us the best access points to continue.
Soon we will arrive at a natural doorway that allows us access to the other side of the mountain, we can continue until we reach the summit. The view is like no other, from Cap Formentor to Cap Ferrutx and inland towards the villages in the Pla des Raiguer and the Tramuntana mountain range.
