Cala Rostella

Route POI
Index card


Cala Rostella forms a small bay facing southeast and protected from the Tramuntana wind. A stream flows into the cove, the Rec de Rostella (dry much of the year), and it is surrounded by pine trees.

Along the way we have seen dry stone walls hidden beneath the vegetation. The Romans were responsible for the first major transformation in terms of agriculture and landscape. Vines and olive trees stretched to the horizon. But the arrival of the phylloxera put an end to the 2000 years of this agricultural history. The dry stone walls hidden under the vegetation bear testimony to the radical changes in the landscape and the economy in the last century.
