    The ruin of the Son Jaumell valley on the summit of the Es Telégraf mountain has a magical appeal, even if it does not look particularly spectacular ...
    However, if you take the trouble to climb the partly rather craggy path you will be rewarded with a great view over the bays of Cala Mesquida and Cala Agulla. In addition, you can let your gaze wander over the Mediterranean Sea and the neighboring island of Menorca.
    At sunrise, a special experience, allderings you should think at home on pocket or headlamps. Without light, the ascent over the mountain path is actually too dangerous ...

    On (and also off) rose from Cala Ratjada are quite tedious. But that's really worth it !!!

    A look was made for Arab pirates who wanted to recapture Mallorca in the 16th century

    The Talaia de Son Jaumell is very good from the Cala Agulla, although very steep to commit. The descent to the Cala Mesquida is to be enjoyed with caution and recommended ONLY with sturdy shoes. Since the first part is extremely steep and lies on the dark side, the rock is moist and slippery there, so that even with good mountain boots is a high degree of difficulty.

    The tower, which is now quite dilapidated, dates from the 16th century and was part of a warning system against pirate attacks that stretched around the island.
    If you look to the northwest you can see the Torre d'Albarca and the Talaia Moreia, which also belonged to this warning system.
    If the tower guard spotted one or more pirate ships, he lit a fire and the smoke or the light at night alerted armed men to defend themselves.
    The name Jaume probably goes back to Jaume II, whose father Jaume I conquered Mallorca from the Moors.
    The direct path from Cala Mesquida is quite steep towards the end, but also feasible for children. Several families met us.
    Great view of the resorts of Cala Mesquida and Cala Ratjada.

    The Talaia de Son Jaumell, also Torre de Son Jaumell is a preserved only as a ruin historic watchtower on the coast of the Spanish Mediterranean island of Mallorca. The name "Son Jaumell" is probably a corruption of Jaume II (James II), who founded the nearby town of Capdepera in 1300.

    You should be quite good on foot. Quite blocked and sometimes steep ascent and descent.

    The somewhat difficult steep climb is rewarded with a magnificent view. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes.

    From the Cala Mesquida very steep and rocky climb. Sturdy footwear mandatory.
    But the climb is worth it

    Great views! We went from Cala Agulla the green route to Cala Mesquida. Very beautiful through the pine forest, the last piece but it has in itself. Sturdy footwear is required to get up the steep slope. As a reward, the great all-round view waits upstairs. A little tip: to enjoy the sunrise, we recommend the red, short route or go early enough with a flashlight.
