Torre Picada

This walk is a detour from trip 13 and also takes about 1.5 hours back and forth, calculated from the roundabout after the tunnel in Port de Soller.

If you are taking the tram from Soller, take the side street "Carrer Antoni Montis" up from the seafront. Here is also signposted the hotel "Es Port". Follow the road up to Carrer de Belgica. As the road turns to the left, continue the narrow and steep paved road straight ahead.

At the top where the road turns right there is a fence and iron gate in front of you with a stone stile to allow you to pass through. Climb over the stile and take the path bearing ahead and to the left. The post is marked with a pink arrow and the indicates the route to the "Torre".

The small fortification tower, which is seen from, among other places, Port de Soller, is a very nice trip when you have some ”time over".

 

The view of Port de Soller and the Mediterranean is fantastic. You get the best view if you take a detour from the tower on the small path to the left that leads towards Port de Soller. You reach the edge and have a beautiful view down towards the inlet to Port de Soller and across to Cap Gros with the lighthouse Far es Cap Gros.

Below the tower there is also a plateau overlooking the north and the next tower, Torre de Na Seca, located near the coastal path towards Cala Tuent and Sa Calobra.
