DescriptionParet de sa Porta is an area within the Alaro crag - it is the left-most when facing the wall. The climbs are all directly accessible from the path that climbs to Castillo de Alaro and the Castle Cafe/Hostel at the top of the mountain.
The left side of this area offers some amazing tufas, while the routes further right tend to be slab climbs on sharp pocketed limestone.
The vistas from the routes are pretty spectacular, which is common on this beautiful island, but the hike is only 10 minutes further to the top, where they are even more impressive.
Getting ThereYou can drive to the restaurant (GPS: 39.729312, 2.788628). There is a parking lot there, or alternatively if your car can handle it, you can follow the road 10-15 minutes further to a large grass parking area on the left (approx GPS 39.735057, 2.786711).
(Note that after the restaurant the road is no longer paved and can be a pretty rough ride. If you do go further, you will pass 2 gates. In the evening, the restaurant will close these gates, but they will not be locked. Please close them again after leaving, or you'll be the one who let the dogs out.)
From either parking area, trails marked for the destination Castillo de Alaro can be followed.
