Hike from Arta to Hermitage of Betlem

Arta is located in the far north-east of Mallorca.

Take the road going from Artá to the hermitage, crossing Can Morey and the pass between the Puig dels Coloms and the Collado de sa Font Crutia. After about two hours of walking you arrive at the Ermita de Betlem, founded in 1800.

Getting Here

Directions

From here, a mirador can be reached by following a path that starts behind the hermitage and climbs uphill. At the top, there is a view extending over the bay of Alcudia, including the peninsula of the same name and its watchtower the Cap de Farrutx, the Morey watchtower (Can Picafort) and, at the very foot of the hill, Colonia de San Pere. On the way back it is worth stopping at the font de Biniagorta, next to which there is a cave in the rocks with a statue of the Virgin. The distance covered until the return to Artá is 18 km. If you still have time, you can visit the Bronze Age monuments ("Talaiots") right outside the town.
