Camino de los caballos menorca

cami de cavalls trail 2022

The Cami de Cavalls de Menorca (GR-223) is considered historical heritage of the island and declared of cultural interest by the Autonomous Community of the Balearic Islands (CAIB). It is a famous path of 185 km that circles the entire island very close to the coast.

It is not possible to establish the exact origin of the Camí de Cavalls, but we know that during the 18th century it was used for military defense purposes, since it allowed the military authority to watch the coasts. It was also used by farmers and its access was completely free for anyone.

Thanks to the law 13/2000 of the Camí de Cavalls, now the CdC (GR-223) is a place frequently visited by hikers and tourists on foot, on horseback or by bike, who enjoy the magnificent views and the fauna and flora of Menorca.

Yes, but there are very complicated stretches and stretches that are simply impossible. If your plan is to cover it all by bike (which is possible), you have to be in good shape as there will be many sections where you will have to carry the bike.

The famous Camino de los Caballos de Menorca, or Camí des Cavalls, is actually a path that runs along the entire island of Menorca for almost 185 kilometers. It arose, in the first place, to cover a defensive necessity and that, at the present time, it has returned to use to harness the tourism of the island.

This Way of the Horses is a very good way to get to know the nature of the island of Menorca.  The name comes from the fact that the watchmen who used to go along these paths to avoid pirate raids or enemy invasions were on horseback.

One of the most interesting and easy routes that you can do in the south of the island is the one that will take you from Son Bou to Es Canutells. On this walk you can enjoy coves, idyllic white sandy beaches, deep ravines, farmland and even some archaeological sites.
