There was only one survivor.

There is a cross that remembers the tragedy. Near the lighthouse we also find a semi-buried military battery built during the Civil War by the Republican army to defend the coasts.

From here the path continues to the south through its calcareous landscape and various coves such as Cala des Corbetar from where we can admire the Pont d’en Gil a bridge of natural rock modeled by the marine erosion in whose vicinity is located a cave of three hundred meters deep.

From this point to the port of Ciutadella the Camí de Cavalls runs for 5 km along paved roads that border the coastline. The journey ends in Ciutadella.
