Hike on the GR 221 | The Dry Stone Route

The Ruta de Pedra en Sec, also known as the Dry Stone Route is a long-distance trail that runs along the entire west coast of Majorca. It connects Port d’Andratx in the south of the Serra de Tramuntana with the town Pollença in the north. Historically, the dry stone walls along this route were previously used by locals as a channel of trade. They rode upon horses and donkeys on the top of these walls as a way of navigating along the steep mountain sides with goods and supplies. The construction of the dry stone wall is a century old piece of architecture that the Majorcans protect and care for. The hikers await a natural spectacle.
