As a place of pilgrimage, Santuari de Lluc is one of the main attractions in the Serra de Tramuntana on Mallorca.

Santuari de Lluc

Understand[edit]

The heart of the old place of pilgrimage is the church, surrounded by a big hotel complex. Beside that, there are some restaurants, bars and souvenir shops. The residential school for choirboys is not accessible for the public.

Located at about 700 m above sea level, Lluc is a very central starting point for many hikes in the Serra de Tramuntana.

The sanctuary was founded in the 13th century after a Moorish shepherd found a statue of the Virgin Mary on the site where the monastery was later erected.
