20 hiking routes in the mountains of Mallorca

21 June, 2023

Mallorca's Serra de Tramuntana mountain range now has a topographical map that includes 20 hiking routes that allow visitors to discover the cultural values of all the municipalities from Andratx to Pollença. The itineraries are an invitation to discover the history of outstanding ethnological elements, such as the old manor houses, different ancient constructions for making ice or coal, hydraulic systems, defence towers, etc.

Thanks to all these elements, in 2011 the Mallorcan mountain range was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the Cultural Landscape category. In fact, all these resources are signposted on the map, as well as the public transport stops to start and finish the excursions using the bus, mountain huts and the hiking trails and other outstanding tracks.

Editorial Alpina, a specialist in mountain cartography, has advised on the edition of the map published on a scale of 1:50,000. The paths chosen coincide with those described in the book “Rutes culturals, poble a poble”, published by the Consorci Serra de Tramuntana Patrimoni Mundial, a body dependent on the Consell de Mallorca. So far, 3,000 maps have been printed and will be distributed free in the municipalities of the Serra.
