Variant A: s'Arracó

The variant

This variant of the Ruta de Pedra en Sec GR 221 hiking trail is located between the village of S’Arracóand the Coll de sa Gramola pass, the southernmost spurs of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range in Majorca. Dry and rocky as they are, let one discern mountain slopes criss-crossed by rudely built walls, a hangover from the subsistence agriculture and social structures of old that led many of the local people to emigrate. Frequent wild fires have left their mark on a remarkable landscape, with the coastline as its backdrop and the European fan palm, the dwarf palm tree of the Mediterranean, as the main distinguishing feature of the vegetation sprouting up again after the fires.
