Climb Description

Sa Creu begins on the north-west outskirts of Palma, shortly after a roundabout where the Ma-20 motorway meets the Ma-1043. It is actually climbing all the way from the coast up through the city of Palma; however the profile begins just on the edge of the city, at the roundabout next to the motorway.

Coll de sa Creu is quite a popular climb, largely because of its convenient location close to Palma. However, we would not put it high on the list of the best climbs in Mallorca. It is forested the whole way, with only occasional views; it is pleasant enough, but there are more spectacular climbs elsewhere in the Tramuntana mountains. Sa Creu is open throughout the year.







Roads & Traffic

The road surface has been recently relaid and is now in very good condition.

Once you have crossed the roundabout next to the motorway on the edge of Palma, there is little traffic for the rest of the climb.




Alternative Routes

The Coll de sa Creu can also be accessed from the west - starting at the junction of the Ma-1043 with the Ma-1016. The climb from this side is short and gentle, with just a few hairpin bends before you reach the top.
