We went for a pleasant excursion yesterday, the Día de la Constitución or the day of the Spanish constitution. The object of our outing was the Puig d’es Calicant, near Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, a small mountain or rather, a hill with an altitude of 476 metres. Reaching the top of Calicant rewards you with spectacular views across large parts of the island, such as the Badia de Alcúdia to the north, the Peninsula del Llevant with Puig de sa Tudossa and Cap Ferrutx (photo above) to one side and the island of Menorca in the far distance, and the southern part of the Mallorcan Levante with Artà and the East Coast on the view to your back.
On the way up, there is the remarkable Pou de Calicant (see photo bottom), possibly dating back to the Moors, some glorious landscape with sheep and goats and Algarroba trees, and there is also said to be a Talayot which, sadly, we could not find. Perhaps next time.
The photos (top) and (bottom) were taken near Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: December 6th, 2011. The time was 14:38:56 and 14:38:56, respectively. The photo (centre) was borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of capvermell.org.
