The variant

In the shelter of the imposing Puig de Galatzó mountain, with its cone shaped silhouette standing out above the surrounding countryside, and the rounded summit of S’Esclop, the last great mountain on the island of Majorca towards the west, lies an extensive public area comprised of the former estates of Son Fortuny, Galatzó and Coma d’en Vidal.

This is a landscape where, among craggy peaks and thick reed beds, there is evidence to be discovered of a past in which even the smallest patch of ground was put to good use. All along the Ruta de Pedra en Sec GR 221 hiking trail, as if they were teaching resources laid out in readiness for a class, there are mills perched up on the hillsides, terraces holding back the soil, walls built round fields and estates and huts that in the past would shelter charcoal burners and their families.
