    Coll de sa Creu is one of the most popular climbs for cyclists in Palma. Due to its proximity to the town and the ability to connect to routes heading in the direction of Calvià, it is common to see a large number of cyclists in the area, even on weekdays.

    The ascent starts just after leaving the Camí dels Reis roundabout, where you take the Camí del Coll de Sa Creu. You will come to a narrow road that is not very busy with vehicles, so you can drive on the road at your own pace. The ascent is erratic in elevation, with a particularly tough fourth kilometer combining multiple bends with an average gradient of over 9%. In this section, there are quite a few ramps of more than 10%.

    Along the way we will be sheltered at all times by pine forests, which are very welcome on sunny days, and we will also pass through an area of ​​olive groves. The road is generally in good condition, with the exception of some very specific points where the asphalt has eroded slightly.

    Once we have finished our conquest leaving Palma, we have covered a total of 5.8 km at an average of 5.2%, climbing up to 380 m. Although there are no great views from the top, we never complain about the environment we cycle through. As they say, the important thing is not the end, but the way.
