The starting point for this walk is from the Plaça Nova in Alaior. Walk down the only road, turn left and follow the calle de Ciutadella, leaving the town on the Camí de sa Costa Blanca. For the next kilometer and a half you will be walking past small allotments or“tanques” until you reach the main road. Then walk up 80m towards Alaior, and cross over into the next lane which leads you to the barranc (gully) d’en Rellotge. After about 10 minutes’ walk from the road you will see a lane peeling off to the left. It is worth taking this divert to see the quarry called Santa Ponça, a fine example of sheer manpower. The quarry is no longer used, and has been converted into a natural area, but you can still see where the rock has been hewn away by hand or machine.

Alaior - Barranc d'en Rellotge

The starting point for this walk is from the Plaça Nova in Alaior. Walk down the only road, turn left and follow the calle de Ciutadella, leaving the town on the Camí de sa Costa Blanca. For the next kilometer and a half you will be walking past small allotments or“tanques” until you reach the main road.

The quarry is no longer used, and has been converted into a natural area, but you can still see where the rock has been hewn away by hand or machine.


Get back on the lane where you took the divert and head south to reach the main section of the walk, the Barranc d’en Rellotge. Soon the vegetation gets thicker and the walls higher. You will see an old arsenal from the Civil War, and not long after this you get onto the Son Bou road, which you cross and then continue south on for just a few meters until you turn left into a dirt road. Known as the Camí de Llucassaldent, this is a lovely path shaded by trees until you cross the stream of Cala en Porter, from which point you will come across more allotments or “tanques”. Eventually you get back onto the surfaced road which takes you back to Alaior; it is a round trip of roughly 6km.
