Cloudy Day Hike

It's been cloudy lately, leaving us all inside and getting CABIN FEVER! So we decided to go outside and get some fresh air. We hiked from Es Calo to La Mola up the side of a cliff and back down an old Roman road. The trail was called Cami de sa Pujada. I'll let the pictures do the talking.
The Sa Pujada path has undoubtedly been the way that people have reached la Mola since way back in the past, maybe even since prehistoric times, following the contours along the edge of an extremely beautiful cliff. In the past it was a much longer route, and there are signs that it was in bad condition near the end of the seventeenth century. In 1797, the Improvement Board commissioned the engineer Pedro Groillez to repair and relay the path. This is the same route that was restored in 2001 by the Department of Culture of the Ibiza and Formentera Council and the Department of Tourism of the Government of the Balearic Islands. On 16th December, 1993, the best preserved stretch of the path was declared a Cultural Asset in the monument category.
EVERYONE was excited
