On this short "Lost Places" hike we explore the former "El Toro Bunker (Bateria Refeubeitx E-2)".The heavy coastal battery Refeubeitx is located on the west coast in the municipality of Calvia. It was built directly on the 150 m high cliff of El Toro and equipped with three 30.5 cm Vickers guns.The task of the battery was to block the bay of Palma in cooperation with the battery on Cap Blanc. In particular, a landing on the beach of Santa Ponça and in the bays of Penyes Rotges (known today for the Port Adriano) should be avoided.There are many abandoned buildings and an extensive bunker system on the site of the battery, which has been shut down since 1996. Unfortunately, all entrances to the former bunker system have now been walled up, so that it is no longer possible to explore the underground part today.
