Leave Cala d’Or in the direction of "S’Horta" and from here head towards Felanitx until the crossroads with the main Portocolom-Felanitx road, where you quickly have to turn left as soon as you see the sign to Sant Salvador, and then go up to the summit and park. Return route: approximately 38 Km. On the way back you can stop off in Portocolom if you so desire.
What to do:
Visit the shrine of Santuari de la Mare de Déu de Sant Salvador (the original church dates back to 1348), which is located right on the summit at an altitude of 509 metres. From here you can enjoy a privileged viewing platform of much of Mallorca’s "Pla" (plain), and the East and South of the island. From this impressive vantage point, on clear days, it is easy to make out the profile of the Cabrera archipelago (both the main island and the islets around it), and even the island of Menorca. It is a place that exudes peace and tranquillity where we can regain strength in the cafeteria (with its pleasant terrace) or the restaurant (more suitable for winter, with windows like paintings displaying the beauty of the island).
Another alternative to using the car (easy and affordable for most visitors) would be to park beside the cross at the beginning of the road leading up to the summit and continue on foot along "ses dreceres", which symbolise the Stations of the Cross on the Calvary of Jesus Christ. A highly recommendable itinerary especially in spring, autumn or winter, due to the beauty of the scenery and the peace and quiet one breathes here.
If you choose to stop off in Portocolom on the way back, you will discover the charm of this beautiful natural harbour. Don’t miss an evening stroll down to the sea shore with the sun reflected on the water, and recover your strength on one of the village’s wonderful terraces.
