Excursion on foot next sunday 4 October

After many months of rest, this next Sunday, 4 October, another “excursion on foot” has been organised to visit a beautiful part of the countryside and to include seeing the renovation which has been made of a well known water cistern. We will walk in the area of two gullies which feed into Son Bou.

Meet in the car park of Son Bou at 9.30 am. The walk will start at 10 am. The excursion on foot will finish at Daia Vell. Itinerary will include spectacular views. It is a guided walk especially to see the renovated water cistern. The walk is of mixed difficulty (the path is easy but the first part is a little bit of a struggle). A bus will return everyone to the beginning of the walk and will cost 3 euros each. The estimated time of the end of the walk is 13.30.
