“Pedra en Sec” was proclaimed by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity

This award recognizes the art, knowledge and technique of dry-stone walling and means greater protection for the Margers. Already in the 15th century, the Margers were mentioned in Mallorca, but in the second half of last century, the craft was almost extinct on the island. The dry-stone structures threatened to decay. On the initiative of the Consell de Mallorca (Council of Mallorca), experts are being trained again today in traditional dry stone construction. The hiking trail “Ruta de Pedra en Sec” is also a project of the Council.

Five trails where you can discover this millennial technique “Pedra en Sec”:

The Camí from Lluc to Pollença
An easy and pleasant path that connects Lluc and Pollença and stands under the watchful eye of the majestic 1,082 meter Puig Tomir.

From Valldemossa to Deià
A route that connects Valldemossa with Deià. This excursion has some stony sections and connects the most spectacular part of the Camí de s’Arxiduc with a dizzying descent to one of the most beautiful villages of the Tramuntana.

The Camí Vell de Lluc
A path that leads to the sanctuary of Lluc in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims who have been worshiping the image of the Mare de Déu de Lluc since the 13th century. Sagas and legends surround the stone-carved path, which has been winding upwards since the Middle Ages from Caimari, offering impressive views over the island.

The Barranc de Biniaraix
One of the best examples of traditional drywall technology is the Barranc de Biniaraix. The path from Sóller to the Sanctuary of Lluc is one of the most popular hiking trails on the island. It has been documented since the 14th century, but probably dates back to Roman times. The ascent to the barren heights of Cúber is imposing.

The Camí Vell of Fornalutx and Sa Capelleta
This route is an old dry-stone path that has linked for centuries Fornalutx to Sóller, the main town of the Vall dels Tarongers.
