    Nice little hike without great challenge with lots of distant views and some culture on mostly beautiful paths and paths, but also some road. Suitable for children. If you park above the village you save a bit of the road and about 500 m total distance, but you miss the old wash house. If you go around the mountain Puig de son Reus you can extend the round by 1 km.Start at the public parking lot in Randa opposite the church. The road to the east, then into Carrer de sa Font past the old wash house and the stone Creu de Randa. A few more meters of road to the parking lot from which the path leads slightly uphill parallel to the road. In the hairpin bend of the road over a wall crossing onto the road, which is left again in the following curve.
    At a scree field, despite the many footprints and Komoot's prompt to turn, do not go up to the right, but a few meters further to the signposted junction (the straight path ends in front of a closed gate).
    Now the path becomes narrower and steeper. After the mentioned scree field, which is now crossed, it is over for a long time with shadow. From here there are views over the south of the island for the first time. Continue uphill along narrow, partly (very) slightly overgrown paths. In October the red berries of the mastic bushes glow.
    Over another dry stone wall onto a wide gravel path. Here you can make a small detour to the left to Cova de Ramon Llull, which unfortunately was not accessible in October 2019. On the wide path up to the summit monastery, the Santuari de Cura. If the many other people don't bother you, you can take a break here at the rest area or on one of the walls with a beautiful view.
    From the Santuari a little on the road to a path that turns left onto a path. On this until you get to the street again. Here you get to the eastern edge of the mountain and you have a magnificent view of the eastern part of Mallorca. A short distance down the road, then another path along the cliff. If you carry gloomy thoughts with you, you can end them here once and for all, but you can also keep enough distance from the abyss at any time so that even those with a head for heights should not have any problems.
    A short stretch of road, a short stretch of path, then comes the longest and most uncomfortable stretch of road. But even that doesn't last five minutes. On a wide road a few minutes to the Sant Honorat monastery. In contrast to the summit monastery, it seems deserted despite the parking lot. Only the church can be visited without registration.
    From here partly on the road to the Santuari Nostra Senyora de Gràcia, which is picturesquely built into the rock below.
    First the access road back to the country road on this already in the curve on a path. Keep right to the hairpin curve at the beginning and then follow the same path back to the parking lot.
