TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

NAME: SANTUARIO DE LLUC

The Lluc Sanctuary was the  first Marian shrine in the Balearic Islands. It dates back to the 13th Century, being a sign of identity for the inhabitants of Mallorca. It could be a perfect visit to complement the days of sun and sand and party nights in the island. The Sanctuary has a House of Spirituality and Retreat with 26 cells. The Renaissance church was built between 1622 and 1691 and its facade was restored in the early twentieth century. One of its most important parts is the choir school: Es Blauets. They were established in the 16th century, imitating the choir of Monserrat. Currently there are around 40 boys and girls who study at Lluc. Its museum was opened in 1952 with an archaeological collection. You can not miss climbing the Monte del Rosario. It takes about 20 – 30 minutes to reach the top of that mountain. A perfect starting point to explore the mountains, on foot or cycling. There are also Recreation zone and campsite.
