The section of the GR-92 which runs from
Cala Montgó to Port de la Clota used to be reserved for military training, and we can still see a series of bunkers dotted around among the pine trees. The route is especially pleasant in spring thanks to the local flora, which includes orchids, lilies and hill daffodils. The promenade which runs alongside Riells beach is dedicated to the book , by The Little Prince Antoine de Saint Éxupery. As we walk along, we come across references to this novel: some volcanic rocks, a tree and a stone-rose on the ground, one of the characters sitting on a terrace, and further along, the Fox on Plaça de l’Univers steps. A group of palm trees arranged to project eastern constellations, then comes the figure of the Little Prince sitting on a wall, and behind it, a small surprise. A few metres further on in the same promenade, we find the Roca del Frare.
