Event Details

Beginning in the 21C and travelling back to ancient times to the days of pirates, merchants and salt workers, this promises to be a fascinating and interesting walk full of history.

We start by walking along the island’s longest beach of Playa d’en Bossa up to the 18C defense tower perched on the cliff top. Then down to the old merchant’s village, before heading into the forest to arrive at the tiny church of San Fransesc and the modern Interpretation Centre, where we will make time to stop and look inside before walking back beside the historic salt flats to the beach.

Sheila’s complimentary homemade cakes, teas and coffee can be enjoyed at the end of the walk. A perfect opportunity to relax and have some fun!
