Holiday return I: Walking the “Camí de Cavalls” in Menorca

Running route in Menorca: Camí de Cavalls GR223 from Binibèquer to Calescoves GR223 route by road horses in Menorca: Binibèquer of a Calescoves This summer we have been on holiday, but we have done our homework! We visited the island of Menorca and we have done some trailrunning by Camí de Cavalls, an ancient public path that rounds the whole island. Its origin is around the year 1330, during the reign of King Jaume II, and was used to defend the coast of Menorca from the foreign attacks. One armed man in a horse round the island to watch the presence of the enemy. Starting from the village of Binibèquer Vell, where we stayed, we went to find our way towards Binisafúller. Once passed the road, just across the wooden fence next to the road to enter another world. The typical Menorca fields full of wild olive tree, pine trees and typical vegetation of the island. The path is filled with stones stuck in the middle of the route. Now we can enjoy the most intimate Menorca, silence, no tourists, and only can meet some runners or some bikers occasionally. Now just follow the path, and we pass over various properties separated by dry stone walls, also called margins, a very old building that was already used by the Romans. By the way, you can also find some herd of cows grazing peacefully, or even any donkey. Along the route you can see the imposing fortified house called Sargossam, with its defense tower dated from XVII century. You’ll have the pleasure of crossing the Biniparratx and Ses Penyes gully. We hope you enjoy this route, we have done it!!
