La Talaia d'Alcúdia

The walk

The route extends through the communal lands of La Victoria, formally used by the Alcúdia residents to collect wood and palmito (palm hearts) as well as for sowing and hunting thus contributing to maintain their precarious subsistence economy.

This peninsula is currently one of Mallorca’s main natural spaces, characterized by the intense contrast between extensive pine groves and the mountainsides covered with vegetation moulded by centuries of intense exploitation, fires and livestock grazing pressure. This circumstance jointly with the mountainous nature of the enclave, the omnipresence of the sea and its outstanding position between the Alcúdia and Pollença bays have made this scenic landscape into a major attraction for excursions.

Not suitable for: children under 6, children’s pushchair, wheelchairs.
