Cala en Basset
The small coastal town of San Telmo, located in front of the small island of Es Pantaleu and the island of Sa Dragonera, is an excellent starting point for various excursions by foot. One of the most recommended for all types of walkers is to walk to the Tower of Cala en Basset passing along the path of Can Tomeví.
The Tower of Cala en Basset was built in the 16th century and together with the Tower of Cap Andritxol and the Tower of La Mola, forms part of the group of defence towers that served to watch over the coast and protect the island from pirate incursions.
The route of this excursion crosses a beautiful pine forest and offers exceptional views over the island of Sa Dragonera, Cala en Basset and the Morro de Sa Rajada.
