Climb Description

The climb to the San Salvador Hermitage begins as you leave the Ma-4010, 2km to the east of Felanitx. San Salvador is clearly signed and you can see it from miles around, so you should have no probelms finding the climb.

San Salvador is a pleasant climb situated in the Llevant Mountains in the east of Mallorca. It is characterised by numerous hairpin bends and is largely forested. However, the view from the top on a clear day is superb and certainly makes the climb worthwhile. At the top of the climb there is also a small museum with framed cycling world champion jerseys from various eras.
