It is a circular tour that has its starting point and its end on the Estate S'Alquería Vella. This forest trail takes us to the hermitage of Betlem, built in 1805, an isolated building which was occupied by three hermits in the past. On this route, which runs along an old road, we will discover arid landscapes and sandy beaches. It has an estimated duration of three hours and its degree of difficulty is medium. The starting point is located in the parking at S'Alquería Vella (Arta). From this point we must go back a few meters to take the path from where the tour starts. During the first few minutes, we will foresee terraces, olive, oak and some other property in ruins. Our goal is to go through the Coll de sa Truja, where we can see in the distance, the hermitage of Betlem. Along the way we will discover a magnificent view of the bay of Alcudia. As we approach the shrine, we find the source of S'Ermita. Once visited the hermitage of Betlem, we can return back the same path we came or we could also keep on walking toward the Coll de Sa Pleta Vella. From there we will take a new path that will lead us to where we left the car.
