NAME: SANCTUARY OF PUIG DE MARIA

At about 330 meters above sea level, on the Puig de Maria (Pollensa), we find the Sanctuary of the Mare of Puig de Maria. It is not accessible by car, although a paved road excursion worthwhile. And is that from the sanctuary of Puig de Maria there are excellent views of the Majorcan coast from Alcudia to Artà.

The sanctuary was built in the late fourteenth century and the first building was a chapel in which the Gothic architecture predominates. It is a basilica floor building with a vault of pointed arches and side chapels chaired by the image of the Virgin Mary.

The monastery was raised. There were built walls around the sanctuary as well as a watchtower from where being watched the sea invasions. The Sanctuary has guest quarters, a cafeteria and a recreational area where you can make ‘’torradas’’  outside along the summer season.
