Campanet, the “hidden” village of Mallorca

Campanet is a village with one of the most strategic locations in Mallorca, it is located in a high area that served as a watchtower in the past, and has the sea and the mountains “at a stone’s throw”.

All the information we give you in Yo soy Mallorca is from our personal experience and from the love we have for this island. But I must admit that this article is special for us because “Campa”, as we call it, is our place of residence where we live with our two cats, Oba and Lola,

The municipality has an area of 35.70km虏, borders with Pollen莽a, Sa Pobla, B煤ger, Selva and Escorca, and is located in relief, 132 meters above sea level, probably with a defensive purpose like its neighbor B煤ger.

Campanet is practically at the foot of the Sierra de Tramuntana, the mountain range that crosses the northern part of the island longitudinally, and has as its “neighbour” one of the best beaches in Mallorca: Playa de Muro, which is only 25′ away by car.

This small village is a place of passage for many people who practice cycling in Mallorca, as it is one of the points where many cycling routes from the north converge.

History of Campanet

The origins of this town are explained in its name, here we tell you all about the history of Campanet.

How to get to Campanet

This beautiful town has five entrance gates:

  1. The Cam铆 Vell d’Alcudia (old Alcudia road) which, as its name indicates, was the old road that came from Alcudia. This road is a complete spectacle as it crosses longitudinally the valley that connects with Pollen莽a and follows the path of the Torrent de Sant Miquel, which receives flow from different torrents: d’en Carr贸s, Comafreda, Casellas, Costurer, and the Torrent de Sa Mina. Accessed from here you are sure to see an abundance of flora and fields of many types of crops. On this road you will be able to enjoy Ses Fonts Ufanes.
  2. The Cam铆 Vell d’Inca (old road of Inca) which corresponds to the old road that communicated with the town of Inca and the villages of the Raiguer. Along this path you will have privileged views of the Sierra de Tramuntana and you will be able to see ancient constructions such as Roman bridges. The previous village on this road is Moscari.
  3. The Cam铆 de Selva (Selva road).
  4. The Cam铆 Vell de Pollen莽a (Ancient Pollen莽a road)
  5. On the highway. This road has the steepest gradient of all the entrances to the village, so if you are a cyclist, this is of interest to you.
