Far from the madding crowd, a serene monastery, church, pilgrimage spot, and fascinating historical/cultural museum.
A famous monastery way up in the Tramuntana mountains
Hidden in the vast forests of the Tramuntana mountain range, far from any cities, was this monastery built in the 17th and 18th centuries. Although it has changed hands many times, it remains a place of pilgrimage for devotees of the Madonna of Lluc, patroness of the island. Besides the monastery you can also visit the Basilica de la Mare de Deu (Mother of God) and the Museum of Lluc, highly recommended for the overview it provides of Majorca's history and culture through art of all kinds, from pictoral works to examples of antique period dress. All right up amidst the bucolic splendour of the Majorcan mountains.
