Puig des Galatzó (1.027 m) is located in the southern Tramuntana range. Close towns include Andratx, Calvia and Estellencs. Also Palma is within a short drive. Have you seen a high piramidal moutain while driving in the south of Mallorca? That’s it!
The tour is challenging yet rewarding. Prepare to walk. Pack something to eat as we will spend lunch time there. The reward for our ascent is spectacular panoramic views across the Tramuntana, the western coastline and towards Palma, and the summit makes a memorable picnic lunch stop and an excellent vantage point for some stunning photos!
