Caminata Solidaria IFCC

Ibiza y Formentera Contra el Cáncer organises a new solidarity walk through Es Broll de Buscastell

This route will take place next Sunday, 25th February, starting from the Sant Mateu car park at 10:30 am

This charitable meeting will last three hours and will offer the chance to enjoy one of the most beautiful landscapes on the island

The Asociación Ibiza y Formentera Contra el Cáncer (Ibiza and Formentera Against Cancer), IFCC, will organise a charity walk of 8.9 kilometres through the valley of “Es Broll de Buscastell” in Sant Mateu d’Albarca on the upcoming Sunday, 25th February. This journey, which is part of their calendar of healthy routes, will start at 10:30 am from the Sant Mateu car park and will last three hours. This moderate-level walk has an elevation gain of 150 metres and is open to people of various ages and physical conditions, who will learn more about the style of irrigation channels preserved from centuries ago.

“This walk consists of an easy circular route whose only difficulty will be crossing the stream,” stated IFCC president, Xaquelina Ana Perry. “Es Broll de Buscastell is part of one of the most beautiful landscapes on the island, whose cultivated plots are located on terraces at different levels, built during the Arab domination era. They are fed by the water from the Es Broll spring, responsible for the fertile landscape, where water is the main protagonist,” she detailed. This walk will take attendees through the countryside and forest to the spring, where a break will be taken. Then, the stream will be crossed, and the old path to Sant Mateu will be followed back to the starting point.

Those interested in participating in this route must register on the website of the Ibiza y Formentera Contra el Cáncer association with a donation starting from 5 euros.

The hike will start at 10:00 hours from the dirt parking area of Santa Agnès de Corona. The initiative’s goal is also to “clean one of the most unknown and hard-to-reach mountain areas of the island,” hence the organizers emphasize the need for participants to have “experience in long hikes“, as well as “good physical fitness” and be “capable of walking, at least for an hour, with a full bag of rubbish.” The Sant Antoni de Portmany Town Hall will collaborate by providing bags and gloves and removing the rubbish through the municipal waste collection service. The hike, of high difficulty and lasting the entire morning, will also feature the participation of the Councillor for Environment, Beaches, Cleaning and Animal Welfare of Sant Antoni de Portmany, Pepita Torres. Those interested in collaborating in this initiative can do so by calling 648 182 989 and making a donation starting from 10 euros.

Ibiza Hikes Station recommends bringing good sports footwear, sun protection, rain protection, water, and some snacks or fruit. Pets and children’s attendance are not allowed. “With this hike, we want to promote a healthy lifestyle, discover new enclaves of the island of Ibiza and clean some of the hard-to-reach coastal areas,” Manuel Ehrensperger clarified, who added that he created Ibiza Hikes Station “as a therapy to combat stress and a sedentary lifestyle.” “Good habits, exercise, and proper nutrition are necessary to combat any disease,” he emphasized.
