The climb is officially called the Coll del Reis and is one of the most scenic drives in the world. Therefore arguably the most famous climb on this increasingly popular island for cyclists.
The road, designed by the Spanish engineer Antonio Parietti, was built in 1932 manually, without the help of any machine, and was designed in a way to avoid the construction of any tunnel. The route includes the infamous Nus de Sa Calobra, a curve of 360 degrees. This tie is one of the most famous curves in the world, turning 270 degrees and going under itself.
It's a popular winter training spot for Team Sky – see if you can beat the 23m 59s mark set by the Australian rider, Richie Porte.
