SHARE ROUTE

From the lighthouse at Capdepera to the lighthouse at Aucanada. You will see the north of Mallorca and you will have two panoramic views of the island of Menorca.

We will leave the lighthouse at Capdepera and travel deep into the municipalities of Capdepera and Artà. We will acquaint ourselves with the historic centers of both municipalities, as well as the talayots at Ses Païsses.

Leaving Artà, we will come to the nature reserve of Son Real, an area that has been populated since prehistoric times. There we will be able to find traces of human presence dating back more than 4,500 years, from the Talayotic, Roman, and Islamic Periods through to today.

Before coming to the natural park of s’Albulfera, we will find a dune system known as Comú de Muro (protected), where you will be able to have an excellent swim.

S’Albulfera d’Alcúdia, the most important protected space in the Balearic Islands, has been protected since 1988 and is both the most extensive area and the area of greatest ecological importance in the Balearic Islands. It has the greatest number of ecosystems and the greatest biodiversity.

Before arriving at our final destination, the lighthouse at Aucanada, we will stroll through the town of Alcúdia to become acquainted with its most iconic edifice, the Murallas de Alcúdia.
