Tips

  • Landlinien

    The monastery ruins "La Trapa" can be reached, among other things, via a climbing trail from the fishing village of Sant Elm. Like a jewel, the 18th-century former Trapisten Monastery spreads before you. It is constantly lovingly restored and thus, despite great fame among hikers, very well preserved. On a gentle walk to the observation deck, you can admire the old mill and former Terassenfelder. A very peaceful place, perfect for a walk!

    The views near the monastery and the terraces of the monastery ruins themselves are "very big" cinema. In order to prevent "La Trapa" from becoming a speculative object, in 1980 it bought an environmental protection organization to restore it with the help of donations and volunteers. With the renovation of the monastery ruin also an accommodation for hikers in this unusual place is to be created.

    The monastery itself is interesting, but especially the view.

    There's nothing better than sitting above La Trappa's ruins. On the left the ruins, on the right a view towards St. Elm and the further mountain range and straight ahead towards Dragona. We are always up there in spring and February, when there is not so much going on. In summer, however, I would avoid it.

    Was built at the beginning of the 19th century by monks of the Trappist order, but was only inhabited and farmed for a good decade. It then fell into disrepair, the Nature Conservation Union of the Balearic Islands acquired the site in 1980 and restorations have been ongoing since then.

    Finca La Trapa is located at the western end of the Sierra de Tramuntana overlooking the island of Sa Dragonera. It is a place of extremely high biodiversity, in which some species stand out because of their uniqueness. For example, 16 endemic plant species and 14 Mediterranean orchid species were found. Bird species such as cormorants, shearwaters, ospreys, hawks and vultures can be seen on La Trapa. Of particular note is the Balearic Shearwater, a species endemic to the islands. It is a pelagic marine species and is in danger of extinction, but it maintains one of its most important colonies on La Trapa, as does the small, inconspicuous songbird, Balearic Warblers. The ecological importance of La Trapa is reflected in its designation as an Area of Special Protection for Birds as well as an Area of Special Conservation. In addition, la Trapa forms part of the Natural Park of the Serra de Tramuntana. The GOB has been working to preserve these natural treasures for more than 40 years.
