Stage 7: Son Amer - Pont Romà

 

The stage

During this, the final, stage of the Ruta de Pedra en Sec GR 221 hiking trail, you will tread shady pathways on your visit to the Son Amer hermitage, listen to the echo of the solitary prayer of ascetic hermits, and, like charcoal burners in bygone days, pass between mighty, almost magical, holm oaks, under the lee of the mountain of Puig Tomir; trees that will immerse you in an atmosphere pilgrims have respired ever since the 13th century, on their way along the trail to pray for the intercession of the Virgin, and that will vividly illustrate the origin of the name “Lluc” – Lucus, the sacred forest of the ancients.
