This trail passes through one of Pollença’s most beautiful and historical spots. It is a route with many interesting things: possessions, limestone ovens, unspoilt coves… But if one thing makes it particularly special it is the remains of one of the island’s most important Talaiotic villages: Bocchoris (1000BC). Its dwellers were the skilful slingers, whose skill at launching stones made them heroes of the Carthaginian, Punic and Roman battles.
