From Sóller town we start climbing the Coll de Son Bleda, a 4.07km climb with an average of 4.70%.
Direction Deia we will rest after this first effort, with a small downhill and an incredible sea-views of the coastline.
Deià is considered one of the prettiest villages on the island, and a magnet for famous artists, writers and other creative people – most notably the writer Robert Graves.
The next point will be Mirador de Sa Foradada: on the coast road between Deià and Valldemossa. Perched atop a cliff overlooking the Sa Foradada peninsula, sunsets here are unforgettable.
