Finca de Planícia

The farmstead of Planícia nestles in a priceless natural, scenic setting. The farmstead has been owned by the Balearic Government since February 17, 2009. Planícia is located in southwest Mallorca and its 445 hectares make up 25 percent of all the land in the municipality of Banyalbufar. Its terrain ranges from rugged coastlines to the peak of Sa Mola de Planícia Mountain (934 m) and its natural treasures include groves of Holm oak and pine trees and associated fauna. Farming at the possessió (the local name for the islanl's great rural farmsteads) revolves around olive oil, which is why olive crops and large olive presses are other points of interest. Also abundant are lime kilns and rotlles de sitges, which were used to make coal from Holm oak in the olden days. The paths crisscrossing the farm are ideal for hiking, since they run through beautiful, peaceful landscapes. Planícia is located on the GR-221 route, known as the Drystone Route, which cuts across the Tramuntana Mountains from north to south. The Balearic Government, through the Ministry of the Environment, and the Spanish Government have joined forces to place this natural space at the islanders' service.
