Via Verda Manacor-Artà
The Green Way (Via Verda) is a path for walkers and cyclists. It follows the route of the old railway line between Manacor and Artà, passing through the towns of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Son Carrió and Son Servera.
The proximity of Cala Millor, as well as Sa Coma and Cala Bona, make it a good choice for visiting these inland towns and an excellent way to enjoy the countryside away from the coast.
From Cala Millor, which is midway along the route, the Green Way can be accessed at various points:
- From the Cala Millor cycle lane in the direction of Son Servera, at the beginning of the built-up area.
- From the PM-4023 Porto Cristo – Son Servera road:
- From the Cala Millor – Son Carrió road, turning off at the roundabout (500 metres).
- By the Camí de Na Penyal.
There are other access points along the route, making it possible to join the Green Way at many different places.
There are rest areas with benches and tables, various places to park bicycles and landscaped areas for stops along the way.
The Green Way is a direct link to the capital of the Llevant comarca (county). From Manacor you can take the train to Inca and Palma.
