This short route is just over two kilometres long. It starts in the Jardí de Ses Eres behind the Sant Francesc Xavier church, and runs alongside the old, recently restored cemetery. Then go up what is known as the old Porto-Salè road, marked at the beginning by the Sa Miranda windmills. The first mill you’ll see is part of a private home, while the second one, the Molí de En Jeroni, is easy to reach. It is one of seven flour mills on the island. This one dates back to the 18th century and the tower is in a very good state of repair. The grindstones have been disassembled and can be seen outside the tower.

Continuing on your way you will enjoy marvellous views of the Estany des Peix and La Savina, the island of Ibiza and the Es Vedrà islet from the slightly raised path. As you travel through part of rural Formentera, you’ll see houses with allotments, vineyards, fields with cereals and buildings with typical Formentera architecture. If you would like to go down to the sea, this peaceful path connects with Route 3 that ends in Cala Saona.
