Experience the most important pilgrimage site on Mallorca, Santuari de Lluc. 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.

  • Such an incredible place. A wonderful, tranquil oasis, with extraordinary landscape and views, lovely grounds, and a brilliant museum all on offer. The food at the cafe next to the monastery is brilliant, often local and very tasty indeed. The Botanic Garden is extraordinary - I can't recommend it highly enough.
  • A real sanctuary in the middle of hills. Very tranquil. Perfect to start hiking around and exploring the mountains nearby. The guests who stay there can use the swimming pool for free in the summer. The restaurant inside serves typical Mallorcan food. The rooms are basic, clean and comfy. But the views around is beautiful. It is just quiet. The air that we breathe feels fresh.
  • Stunning views of the mountain range inside of Mallorca. This is a great stopping point if you are hiking or biking up these mountains. It has a weird mixture of ecclesiastical artwork and architecture. If you are so inclined you can also rent rooms in the converted horse stables. If you bring the kids in the summertime there is a huge swimming pool and they have a great offering of local cuisine.
  • Awesome place. Perfect to regenerate your spirit and energy. A place full of interesting history.
  • A beautiful, simple place to stay. Rooms are spare, the restaurant is full service, and the grounds are stunning. I suggest asking for a corner room if you stay over in summer because it can get quite hot and the two Windows really help.
