Sa Granja and Camí des Correu, GR 221
Sa Granja (stands at the entrance to Superna valley. This ancient Islamic farmstead was inhabited by Cistercian monks between 1239 and the 15th century. The estate house is a good example of an aristocratic home from the second half of the 18th century, with a porticoed gallery and gardens.
From Pla des Murtar plain, a path runs along the hillside terraces of Ses Mosqueres and enters the wood. After Coll de sa Talaieta pass, where a crag known as Potada des Gegant (the Giant’s Footstep) can be seen, you reach a clearing called Era des Moro where bark from holm oaks was dried for the textile industry. Close to the path, there are buildings and other structures used by charcoal burners, lime makers and tree fellers. The path, which features a cobbled stretch of paving, crosses Coll des Pi pass to Font de la Vila spring and Banyalbufar.
From Cor de Jesús (a statue of Christ reached from Son Ferrà estate house), you can enjoy panoramic views of Esporles valley. If you continue on up, you reach Maristel·la hermitage (the old hermitage’s mountain refuge) and Fita del Ram peak (at an altitude of 833 metres).
The GR 221 dry stone route passes through the municipality of Sóller on stage 3. All the official information can be found at https://caminsdepedra.conselldemallorca.cat/-/variant-4-universitat-tram-esporles-establiments
