This really is worth driving to as the Lluc road from Pollenca is truly amazing with incredible views and rock formations. I haven't experienced the 'noise problems' but tend to go there early to mid morning. Fabulous photo opportunities all around and the Museum is worth visiting as it houses many antiquities. Also in the Museum is a wonderful exhibition... More

The basilica itself is worth a visit but that takes all of ten minutes. We were persuaded to by and entrance ticket for the botanical gardens and the museum to reduce the car park fee. These were a total waste of time. The botanical gardens in particular being a winding track up the side of the hill passing what appeared... More

I was reading about how much noise there was here. We went in October and it was quite peaceful. This is in the mountains so the journey there is spectacular and you can go to some lovely places nearby. In the complex there is a museum (extra payment but worth it - only 3 euros), the amazing church, a video... More

We visited here as part of a coach tour of the area, the road up the side of the mountain gave some great views. The monastery it self was very busy and crowded with market traders in the court yard. It would appear that the place has become very commercialised with more emphasis on this rather than what the visit... More

Exciting car ride up to the site in the mountains. Go early or late ie. not when the coaches are en route. Large elegant buildings, more formal than we had expected. The children's choir sang very well, but it is 'choir' music, not cathedral type music. The walk up the hill has great views and was peaceful and shady in... More

This place is set high up in the mountains and does project an air of peace. The church and museum areas, together with the art collection are well worth seeing. In addition there is a meandering garden that whilst not at it's best when we went it does have huge potential. Nice café on site and ticket staff were very... More

The monastery and grounds were well worth the visit. We enjoyed the botanic gardens laid out on the hillside above the monastery, and also the walk to the viewpoint on the hill above. The main courtyard and basilica were had some interesting features. There are a number of cafes and restaurants - the one in the main courtyard being popular... More

This place has it all. We enjoyed the film- very well done and then a walk around the basilica. It is well worth listening to the children's choir which has been singing since 1500s I think and there is more of a service for the religious too. The art gallery thee is one of the best on the island and... More

If you do monasteries then this may well suit you. We don't but this was on a organised coach trip. The buildings have a quite grandness about them. All the church material struck me as having dark broodiness about them but many fellow visitors found it all moving and good stuff. Tips then - walk around. There as a path... More
