The road to Sa Calobra

The road to Sa Calobra was built in 1932 and before this the village only had 20 citizens. This is one of the most famous roads on Mallorca. Airborne the route is only 4 km, but the road is 12 km long. You can only drive about 20 km per hour and this gives you the opportunity to see the surroundings, especially if you are a passenger. It was the engineer Antonio Paretti who created the road and there were two things which he acutely disliked. He did not fancy steep curves and having to destroy mountains. Because of this he did not want to blast a hole in the mountain and he actually managed to create this road without having to do that.
