PARATGE NATURAL DE LA SERRA DE TRAMUNTANA

The Serra de Tramuntana mountain range sprawls for approximately 90 km, from the southwest to the northeast of Mallorca.

With more than a dozen peaks at altitudes of over one thousand metres, these mountains form one of the most emblematic areas on the island. The predominance of calcareous stone in these mountains and constant interaction with the surrounding water have given rise to a unique landscape with endless karst formations.

Menut, Binifaldó, Son Moragues, Cúber, Sa Coma des Prat, Mortitx, Ses Figueroles, Míner Gran, Sa Coma den Vidal, Gabellí Petit and Planícia are among the many public estates that belong to the Autonomous Community of the Balearic Islands and form part of the Serra de Tramuntana Nature Area. Together, these estates have a total surface area of approximately 4000 ha.

The main objective of the classification of a protected Nature Area is the conservation of its natural and cultural value. The Serra de Tramuntana received its status as a Nature Area through the Balearic Islands Government Resolution of 16 March 2007 (BOIB, No. 54 EXT). With a land zone of 62,403 ha and a marine zone of 1,123 ha, this is the largest protected nature area in the Balearic Islands. In fact, its borders cover parts of the municipal areas of Alaró, Andratx, Banyalbufar, Bunyola, Calvià, Campanet, Deià, Escorca, Esporles, Estellencs, Fornalutx, Lloseta, Mancor de la Vall, Palma, Pollença, Puigpunyent, Santa Maria, Selva, Sóller and Valldemossa. The Natural Resources Management Plan of the Serra de Tramuntana, which was approved by Decree 19/2007 (BOIB No. 54 EXT), aims to serve as a general structure for the management of natural resources and values. For such purpose, this plan has divided the area into zones (exclusion, limited use, compatible use and general use) and regulated its use (permitted, authorised and prohibited). The Serra de Tramuntana Nature Area includes the Natural Monument of the Torrent de Pareis, Gorg Blau and Lluc (which received such status by virtue of Decree 53/2003, of 16 May) and the Natural Monument of les fonts Ufanes (declared such by Decree 111/2001, of 31 August). Moreover, the Nature Area either partially or completely encompasses different zones that are also included within the Natura 2000 Network (Sites of Community Importance and/or Special Protection Areas for Birds), protected oak forests and urban protection legislation, such as the Serra de Tramuntana Natural Area of Special Interest (ANEI de Tramuntana), among others.

The landscape of the Serra de Tramuntana is noted for its diversity. The many different wooded, shaded and sunny areas, shaped by oak forests, pine forests, Mauritania Vine-Reed and other species, alternate with agricultural fields, where olive groves are particularly common. One of the most significant aspects of this mountain range is the vast wealth of its plant life. The countless endemic species include some extremely rare plants and others with very extensive populations, such as the Balearic St. John’s wort (Hypericum balearicum). The Serra de Tramuntana is also a refuge for animal species such as the Mallorcan midwife toad (Alytes muletensis), and accommodates numerous endemic invertebrates, birds, cave-dwelling species, and more. The coastline of the Serra de Tramuntana boasts abundant Posidonia oceanica prairies. Along with the maerl beds and coralline communities, these algae species are particularly worthy of note for their beauty and good state of conservation. Human activity has been connected with the Tramuntana Mountains since time immemorial. Proof of this can be seen in the stone wall borders and terraces, icehouses, watchtowers, fortifications and water deposits, which embody an important part of our history.

The Cases de Planícia Trail is signposted as “Camí de les Cases de Planícia”. This itinerary goes through the public estate of Planícia, which forms part of the Serra de Tramuntana Nature Area, in the municipal area of Banyalbufar. It starts at the entrance to the estate, which is located at kilometre 90.2 of the Pollença-Andratx highway (Ma-11) and finishes at the estate’s houses. This trail can connect with other itineraries, and particularly with those of Font de s’Obi and Aljub dels Cristians.

Etapas

Before you begin the hike, you may like to know a bit about the history of the estate. Planícia was documented as such as in the 14th century. Owned in the 15th century by the brothers Jaume and Gregori Johanm, the farmstead made its way to the hands of Francesc Sunyer Colomines, a knight and a minister of the Inquisition. In 1732, it was owned by the Marquis of Campofranco, apparently marking the beginning of abundance for the estate. During this period, the estate facilities included houses, an olive oil mill, an animal-driven mill, a still to produce liquors and a cellar. There was a vegetable garden, as well as olive groves, carob bean groves, fig groves, vineyards and grain fields. The grapevines, which were sown in different places around the estate, produced up to 20 somades of grapes (a somada is a measurement based on the load that could be carried by a mule, which was ususally 4 sacks). In 1938, due to the great social changes and the progressive decline of the Marquises who had gradually sectioned off the estate, the Balle family purchased Planícia and continued with agricultural production until the 21st century. In February 2009, the estate was purchased by the Autonomous Community of the Balearic Islands and the Spanish Ministry of the Environment, and ever since, it has been administered by the Regional Ministry of the Environment of the Balearic Islands.
The path leading to the estate’s houses begins at the estate entrance gate, which is located on the highway. Please keep to the asphalted road at all times. You will come to the first bends in the path beneath the shade of a holm oak and pine forest. At the crossroads with the GR (long trail) from Estellencs, the landscape changes and you will begin to see the first olive tree groves. In the past, olive oil was the most important product made by mountain estates. Hundred-year-old olive trees are found virtually everywhere in the nearby area. In fact, it is said that the Carthaginians taught the islanders the art of grafting the wild olive trees that grow in all of the island’s scrublands. As you continue down the path, you will see the starting point of the Font de s’Obi Itinerary. A bit further down the road, you will come to the Es Camp Gran (large field). According to the elderly generations of Banyalbufar, this flat plane or prairie lends its name to this estate, which is nestled in the mountains. The largest cultivation area in Planícia, this was the site of the estate’s oldest olive trees. While in the hands of the last owners and coinciding with the decline in olive oil production, those trees were removed to create pastures for the sheep. On the left, you will see the porch structure known as the Porxo des Camp Gran, which is open on one side. This dry wall construction can serve as a shelter in case of an unexpected rainstorm. Once you have passed the Es Camp Gran, just past the starting point of the Aljub dels Cristians trail, you will see three stone pines (Pinus pinea), which were listed on the Balearic Islands Catalogue of Singular Trees in May 2004. A pair of long-eared owls (Asio otus) has built a nest in the crown of one of the trees. Along the line between the cultivated fields and the forest area, at an elevation of 420 metres, you will now arrive at the houses, which offer a spectacular panoramic view of the coastal areas of Banyalbufar, Estellencs, Andratx and Sa Dragonera. Near the main building of the houses, you will see other buildings that were designed for agricultural purposes. Sitting a bit further away, in the Camí des Rafal trail, is the Casa de les Collidores, a house that was built to accommodate the olive harvesters who came from the nearby towns.
The estate houses are located in a privileged spot on the north side of the plateau of Planícia. Still in good condition, they comprise one of the best remaining examples of estate houses in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains. In 1636, the distribution of the houses was as follows: olive oil mill, kitchen, sitting room and olive oil cellar. The number of rooms and the quality of their furnishings are indicative of the original humble nature of these houses. Today, Planícia’s buildings are complex, with an elongated layout, the main façade of which faces the northwest. The buildings consist of two floors, with the exception of the main entrance area, which has a single floor, crowned by a balustrade. The main door bears a segmental arch that is flanked on each side by a window. This door opens to a hall that in turn leads to a small and well-proportioned courtyard. Covered in grapevines, the courtyard separates the more modern house of the owners, on the right, from the older house of the tenant farmers, on the left. Sitting in the left rear corner of the courtyard is the rainwater cistern.
With an olive oil tradition dating back to among the first in Mallorca, Planícia in fact has its own mill, which continued to produce oil for market distribution until just a few years ago. The left wall bears the construction date of the olive oil mill, 1724, which is the same year that the tenant farmer houses were built. At the time, this was considered to be a modern oil mill; its two beams giving it still more prestige. In the 20th century, while owned by the Balle brothers, the system was mechanised to expedite the olive oil production process. During the 1944-1945 season, this mill produced 12,794 litres of olive oil, an amount that can be considered normal or perhaps even a bit low. According to an informant, one year the harvest was so good that the mill put out nearly 72,000 litres of olive oil. The oil cellar, which is attached to the mill, still contains the oil storage tank and the built-in basins where the water was separated from the oil.
Once the damaged olives and the unwanted impurities were removed from the batch, the oil production process began. Below is a brief description: The first step was to crush the olives and form a paste. The olives were poured into an inverted-pyramid-shaped wooden silo known as a tremuja. The tremuja was in turn connected to a circular stone, which acted as a base. Rotating on top of the base was the rutló, a large conic-shaped milling stone that crushed the olives as it went round. The movement of the trull, or mill, required the strength of an animal, which was thus attached to it and walked in circles, moving the gears. Pressing the olives was the second step of the process. The olive paste resulting from the initial milling process was then collected by an olive mill worker and placed in circular straw trays known as esportins. Once these containers were full, they were stacked on a large coarse stone plate known as a bassi and then pressed beneath the wooden beam, which was formed by a long and heavy tree trunk. Two men would lower the beam, using a large stone known as a quintar, forming a sort of pulley mechanism. The straw trays were placed under pressure and constantly doused with boiling hot water from the caldron, which was always on the fire. The oil and the hot water that dripped out of the trays were collected on the bassi and then channelled into the sorting basins. The last step of the process involved the separation of the hot water from the oil, which floated on top. This was done in the sorting basins. Once the process was complete, the oil was stored in a room known as the oil cellar. This cellar also served as a storage room for the oil measurement utensils. The oil was stored in metal jugs known as odres until sold. Olive oil production could be reinstated at the Planícia mill in the future.
