One of the most interesting points of a hike from Paguera. Walk through the forest, passing a beautiful bay and end up in airy heights. Enjoy beautiful views on this trip.

The path to the defense tower of Cap Andritxol (16thcentury) starts in the street called Camí des Salinar in Camp de Mar. Several signs indicate the way. There is a stair to get to the path. This route is easy to follow even though we are going uphill, climbing the mountain. While we are walking upwards, we have a view of Paguera and further on we can see Santa Ponsa and the Malgrats Islands. At the end of the walk, in front of the watchtower, we get a wonderful view of Cala Blanca and Camp de Mar. 

About fifteen years ago, the fashion model Claudia Schiffer bought land at Cap Andritxol which included the watchtower. While her house was being built, a fence was set, blocking the public paths to the tower. There were many complaints because walking to this tower has always been very popular for locals and tourists. Due to the controversy, Schiffer paid for the restoration of the defense tower, with the permission and advise of the Mallorca Council and the GEFB (Group for Fortifications studies). If we want to start hiking from Paguera, we have to go to Cala Fornells. At the Caló des Monjo (a small quiet beach with clear water where many hikers stop to bathe) we can easily find the way to the tower. It is an easy and very enjoyable walk. Walkers are advised to wear suitable footwear due to stones. Runners use this path to practice “trail”.
