To talk about Lloseta is to talk about pure nature. Beyond the town centre and due to its proximity to the Serra de Tramuntana, the village becomes a paradise to discover the different scenery of Majorca and to enjoy the different options that we propose. Lloseta can be a starting point or destination of several hiking, mountain biking or bike road excursions. The most important heights near the town are S’Alcadena’s Mountains, Alaro’s Castle, Sant Miquel’s Mountain, the Tossals Verds (the green hills) and the Mount of the Cross. Although not all of them belong to the municipality of Lloseta, its proximity causes hiking groups to regularly start walks from here. It is even worth to put on some trainers and go for a walk through the paths surrounding the village.
It is a tour of great beauty and a varied scenery that will delight any visitor with a glimpse of the first sharp slopes of the Serra de Tramuntana. The journey is not extremely difficult but does require some good physical condition to do it. The circuit has frequents ups and downs along the four hours it takes to do it.(approximately).
The route begins in the town’s square, passing the cementery and goes to the estate of «s’Estorell» in parallel to the stream of «s’Almedrà». Before arriving to S’Estorell, walk through a field of almond trees and then turn off to the left to face the climb to the old houses of s’Estorell. You will arrive after little more than half an hour walk. From here, you can see a panoramic view of the «Pla de Mallorca” that reveals through a slit of S’Almendra’s stream. After half an hour and following the path northwards climbing over the fields, we will arrive to the «Font Nova», located just behind a small mountain hut. It’s a perfect place to have a snack and admire s’Alcadena crag located just in front of us. Three curves above the path we have been following we switch to a hidden «caminet de cabra» (tiny and narrow path) that leaves within the thick oak lands of Can Xalet. Far a short distance, the road goes up to «Cases Noves» repeatedly, an hour away from the «Font Nova». On our way down to Manacor through the wide road, we can find the «Font Garrover” with old olive trees along the roadside. After a remarkable drop down in our path, in half an hour we stand in the town of Mancor de la Vall by entering the path that leads to Santa Llúcia. Then we turn to the right to the lands of Biniamar. At the end of the climb, the asphalt ends and we pass over a barrier to meet Biniatzar, where we can stop and visit «la Font de’n Patró». We follow the trail down passing over the houses and through the common of Biniamar, between the «Plana Forana» and «Montaura». We arrive to Biniamar after an hour long walk and and cross heading towards Lloseta. Finally we arrive to the final destination succeeding a little more than a kilometer downhill. See route
This route is a pleasant walk around Lloseta with a initial rise where we can enjoy a stunning panoramic view towards the “Pla de Mallorca”. Leaving Lloseta’s town square we head towards the football field located at the side of the mountain.
From this point of the excursion, we take the road that passes the municipal swimming pools and a hundred meters higher, we turn to the left and begin the climb to the top of «el Puig de Lloseta». All at once the path will show you stunning views of «El Pla de Mallorca» with charming villages scattered here and there and Inca, the greater and also closer to Lloseta.
After an hour long rise inside a pine grove, you will reach some old wells that serve as reference to indicate that the climb is over. Then we have to aside to the west by a goat path around the top of the mountain that goes to the other hillside. Meanwhile the «Puig des Rafalet» is just in front of us.
The descent begins (half an hour approximately) and leads us to Son Daviu farmland. We can then go to the left where there is a stone well that will allow you to admire the simple and solitary houses built in the mountain.
The descent, always westwards, is constant and arduous and it passes the «penya Roja» until it reaches s’Estorell lands. Then you will find the paved road at your left that will take you back to the village of Lloseta from the cementery to the centre of the square. The whole excursion takes around three hours to be completed. See route
