The Consell de Mallorca has finally reopened the path along the Ca na Borrassa estate in Pollensa. For years this 87m-long path meant that the old road between Lluc and Pollensa was impossible to pass. The route is recognized by the Consell as a public path and in March 2012 it was agreed they would recover the original route.
In July, the Consell installed temporary barriers while the Ca na Borrassa estate was secured. They had to break the locks of the property that prevented the free passage by Ca na Borrassa, property of the family of the ex-mayor and current leader of the opposition, Tomeu Cifre Ochogavía.
For the last 6 weeks the farm has remained closed while work was carried out to protect the livestock on the estate. Last week access was finally opened and signposts identifying the Dry Stone Walk to which this ancient road belongs have been placed. President of the Consell de Mallorca, Miquel Ensenyat told press it was a “day to be happy” for the reopening of a public road. “After ten years we return the Mallorquins a part of their own heritage,” he said.
