What is it?
The route follows the pedestrian path linking the historic centres of Calvià and Es Capdellà. The track is in optimum conditions for hiking and also for cycling. The path goes alongside the Avinguda de Calvià and offers magnificent views of carob and almond groves, the Galatzó mountains, the S'Esclop crag, the Galatzó gulley and the Mofarés and Son Alfons estates (the first is 14th Century and the second was divided from the Galatzó property in the 16th Century). The civil and religious architecture of both villages are also highlights, such as, for example, Cal Metge Vell (Carrer la Capelleta), the Es Pontet house (Carrer Es Pontet) and the church of Sant Joan Baptista in Calvià.
The route is a little over six kilometres long and is not difficult, which makes it ideal for all the family. It takes just under two hours to walk.
Freely accessible and free of charge.

The trip begins at the bus stop in Es Capdellà and we need to walk towards Calvià on the Camí Vell which goes down to the right, which is parallel to the main road (PM101-5) and joins it roughly one kilometre outside the village. Turning to the right around one hundred metres further on, we come across the start of the Camí del Molí Nou where there is an information point. This is a well defined path that takes us through some beautiful spots with almond groves on the left and hills covered with pine trees on the right. The gulley, which is not yet visible, runs on the left.
Twenty minutes later a spot shaded by pine trees, near to the dry gulley bed, tempts us to stop and have a drink if it is a hot day. Continuing on the route, we soon come across the mill that gives its name to the path, Molí Nou, standing on a hill, which is private property. After thirty minutes the path turns to the left and crosses the gulley, which now has water flowing through the rushes and crosses the path to fall once again onto its bed. As with many gullies, the waters here flow mainly underground and only rise to the surface occasionally. We are surrounded by bird song here and we can even see the odd bird pecking at the plants and rushes near to the water.
Setting off again, we continue the walk between orchards and cultivated fields with a wall of tall rushes on the edge of the gulley, which is now on our right. A path goes off to the right back to the gulley. We continue on the main path passing by a turn off to the left and, at the end, the path climbs gently and joins the Camí de Son Pillo, where we need to turn right about five minutes later. Then we get to a path on the left going to Son Malero and the Club Escola Cavallistes. This is a beautiful walk through more open country, full of fields of flowers in Spring, which runs by the Son Malero rural hotel before reaching the village of Calvià. At the end of the path, which is known as Collet, we turn right, coming out onto the main road just in front of the town hall, and then left, ending the trip at the bus stop on the corner of Avinguda de Es Capdellà.
