LEVEL B (East / Moderate) SANTA GERTRUDIS – Font d’en Miquelet

Distance: 8 Km

Height Gain: 120 m

Duration: 2 hours

Good walking shoes, walking stick and water are recommended.

This is an easy, flat walk taking approximately 2 hours to complete. We begin by walking in a westerly direction crossing Cami Fontessa to come to Pau d´en Gatzara – this well dates from 1765 and has been restored in recent times.  This was an important well and was celebrated as part of the Festival San Juame which takes place each year on 25 July.

We shortly join the main road and carefully walk to the Font d´en Can Miquelet. We will take a break here and explore the Font which has internal decorations of geometric patterns and flowers.  The date of the well is not known but there is a water tank nearby dating from 1823 but the well itself is thought to be much older than this.  Also, there is a ‘Noria’ nearby – this is a water system introduced in Arab times where water was raised from a deep well powered by a horse or mule walking in a circle while attached to a mechanism to haul water to the surface.

When we leave the Font, we rejoin the road then take a camino bringing us back to Santa Gertrudis.
