Many trails leads to Torre Nova des Cap Vermel. From above you can enjoy spectacular views over the eastern coast. This 210 meter tall tower was built with limestone masonry and lime mortar, but nearly all of the exterior plaster has fallen off over the years along with many stones, which threatened the stability of the tower. The Central Government and Capdepera Town Hall have decided to renovate the tower and an agreement has been signed. The most expensive part of the restoration works is the transportation of materials to the tower’s location.
