Port de Soller - Fornalutx - Soller
The starting point is the large information board at the roundabout after the tunnel on Ma-11
in Port de Sóller.
The walk initially follows the narrow and winding paved road Ma-2124 (same as in hiking
number 7) up through the beautiful valley of Sa Figuera.
There is almost no traffic and therefore the route is popular with walkers.
Instead of continuing the road to Soller, as in hike number 7, take the left road to Fornalutx
after about 45 minutes, at the sign "Cami de Figuera, Fornalutx, Tuent - Sa Calobra". After just
a few meters, the sign is repeated to the right, then with the time "1 h 5 min" to Fornalutx.
The old path up the olive groves is steep, but after 20 minutes it levels out and then it's
downhill all the way to Fornalutx and Soller.
On the last stretch before Fornalutxyou are surrounded by orange and lemon trees and the air
is filled with their fragrance.
Fornalutx itself is an experience, so I recommend you to spend
some time walking around the cobbled streets and enjoy the beautiful old houses with their gardens or flower arrangements on the streets outside.
The village is not big, so you have time for a stop.
Sit down on the small square Plaça d'Espanya in the center of the village, lay back and enjoy the atmosphere or have a lunch at the terrace of restaurant Ca N'Antuna and enjoy the stunning view of the Soller valley. The restaurant serves affordable Majorcan cuisine.

The walk then continues on to Soller.
You can follow the main road Ma-2121 down, but the old path through the small village of Binibassi is much more beautiful.
Follow the sign to the Fornalutx cemetery or alternatively the main road past the bus stop to the city border, where there is a signposted walk to Soller and Cami Binibassi right up the road on the Carrer Nou Vial road.
After the cementery the walk down to Soller takes about 50 minutes and ends at the football field. Follow Av. d´Astúries to the left to get to the square in Soller, Plaça Constitucio.
