Experience the most important pilgrimage site on Mallorca, Lluc Sanctuary. Founded in the 13th century after a Moorish shepherd found a statue of the Virgin Mary on the site, this monastery offers a place of tranquility, spirituality, artistic heritage, and natural beauty. Wander around the grounds to appreciate the view of the mountains and the medieval monastic architecture. Behind the monastery buildings, there's a botanical garden trail with notes on preserving the environment of the Mallorcan mountain region. Inside the museum you will find works of art, ancient pottery and ceramics, furniture, and other artifacts. Enter the ornately decorated church and you may be able to hear the boys’ choir, Els Blauets, which was founded in 1531 and holds concerts regularly--their album is available in the gift shop. There are several places to eat, as well as guest accommodations and campsites.

  • 5578-5581-5593-5605 65 5632 the sanctuary of Lluc is a sanctuary in the mountains that is based around a Madonna found in the mountains. Our Lady is in a small chapel behind the main altar. This place is very important for the mallorcains at the level of spirituality. Once a year, many make a pilgrimage on foot to get there. In this place, there is everything you could possibly need: Church, choir of children, accommodation, restaurants, shops, stations of the cross of Gaudí in mountain, Botanical Garden of medicinal flowers, hiking trails in the mountains and a museum filled great paintings by the greatest painters Spanish (not to be missed!). Buses also go the most important cities (such Palma and Pollença). At the level of accommodation, there are nice rooms, single or double. The furniture is simple but modern and comfortable. The double rooms have a larger bath room but all are comfortable and so quiet... At night, no sound... the silence it are a total to Lluc when we sleep...

  • The most significant pilgrimage place on Mallorca, where the statue of the Virgin Mary, patron saint of the island, which is said to fulfill wishes. The starting point for exploring the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, with the possibility of accommodation in Slovakia.
