San Lorenzo – Venda de Balafia Circular

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

We begin from the old church and make our way southwards along ancient tracks and narrow footpaths, passing through peaceful and timeless Ibiza countryside virtually untouched by modern development. We have the chance to break our journey at Bar Torres beside the Sant Joan road before continuing on the other side through equally lovely country. Eventually we return to cross the Sant Joan road again and walk up the relatively quiet little road towards San Lorenzo. After just a few hundred metres, we head north up a track that will bring us into the historic pueblo of Balafia. Additional information will give some background to this wonderful place, but please bear in mind it was written for a walk that came in the opposite direction. From Balafia it is but a short, ten-minute walk past Can Pere Mosson, now a sad sight with its ruined tower, back to San Lorenzo.

My thanks to Janice and Phil.Beekeeping restrictions and land delineation have sadly forced me to alter what was one of the best parts of this walk.There is now a new and shorter route from way mark 8 to where it rejoins the original. Still a very pleasant country ramble overall. Jim Arymar

Did this walk in February 2018 and very fine it is. Unfortunately, it has now been fenced off at point 9 although this was a poor effort to block off the track with wire. More substantial was the new fence all the way from point 9 to 10 on the left. We did manage to get through this fence though it was not easy. Is there a possible way round the obstacles?
