Since its rehabilitation in 1989 this former communication path between the towns of Deià and Sóller has gradually recovered its past splendour, being greatly attended by hikers who follow it every year.

Between Plaza de la Constituciò and the Sóller train station Calle de Isabel II begins where this route commences. Before reaching the road we have the possibility of visiting the convent of los Misioneros de los Sagrados Corazones. In front of the cross we take the old Palma path until reaching the roundabout where we continue on our way in the direction of Palma. Just a few metres later we find an asphalted path on the right (km 29.9); it is the Pujol d’en Banya path which ascends rapidly whilst we observe on our right Puig d’en Ramis and the Ses Tres Creus monument. We ignore two detours on the right and walk parallel to the Palma road. After a bend with steep ascent, a cobbled track appears with the remains of the old Ciutat path. We resume the cement path and almost immediately we carefully cross the train tracks.

In this way we reach the end of a cart track where the houses of Pujol de sa Banya are situated. Right alongside is the Son Castelló path whose initial part provides excellent views over the Sóller valley, with the town at your feet. The bridle path now becomes a cart track which transforms into a bridle path one again; the olive groves alternate with some holm oaks and pines, whilst the strips of land, sheds and other dry stone elements draw our attention.

We leave behind several roads which go down to Sóller, following the  Castelló path in the direction of Deià, going round the houses of Can Jeroni Gros and continuing via the cart track which takes us to Ca’s Xorc and s’Heretat. Between the strips of land and olive groves, hidden by the mountains of Puig de sa Bassa, we reach the houses of Can Carabasseta and the oratory of Son Castellò, currently in a poor state of repair.

Going round the oratory on the left, we follow the cobbled track which takes us to the houses of Can Prohom and Can Mico; leaving on the right the mark of the pine of Ensaïmada, we go down Es Gravet and walk above the houses of Sa Casa Nova and Can Miquelet.

After crossing an asphalted path we attain the lands of Deià where we have the option of visiting on the right the fountain of Ses Mentides, then continuing with a short ascent which takes us to the village of Son Coll. A descent now starts which continues via the interior of the urbanisation of the caves of Can Puigserver and whichcomes out onto the Sóller-Deià road at kilometric point 60,250, not far from the houses of Ca l’Abat. From here we can reach the village of Deià via the road or the paths of Sa Pesta or Sa Vinyeta, signposted on the road itself and with a slightly longer route, but also more attractive and safer.
