After a long scary coach ride up the narrow mountain being passed by many cyclists who had no fear of the coaches or of the narrow road with a huge drop off the side (we even passed where a cyclist had been killed and flowers were laid) we were biting our nails in fear as our driver went at a...

Our guide told us it is a hospital for asthmatics! Not sure about that - but we went round the church and then the gardens. Absolutely beautiful. The views on the drive up to the monastery (lots of curves in the road and cyclists!) was breath-taking. Definitely worth a visit. Lots of places to sit and look and a picnic... More

Having been travelling to Mallorca since 2008 I thought it time to visit Lluc. A better example of medieval monastic architecture would be difficult to find. The combination of an excellent museum, coupled with the magnificent church to include its domed roof make for a pleasant visit. The short video intro was a tadge too dark for my taste and... More

A tranquil and interesting place to visit. The buildings and grounds are beautifully maintained. The Basilica is atmospheric and interesting. There is a good museum attached containing works of art, ancient pottery and ceramics, furniture and other artifacts. There are several places attached where it is possible to eat well for a modest amount. Parking is very near and there... More

A short visit to a wonderful place. Alas pick pockets - would you believe - in the basilica. Inside-whilst a service had just commenced! Wallet, passport stolen but returned, obviously less the cash. The thieves blocked a door while we were trying to exit. This made us raise arms to push our way out. They made it feel as if... More

We came here in a trip organised through our Thompson Rep. Included trip to Port Soller, Soller and the funicular railway. Unfortunately we had just over an hour at the monastery which was way too short. You need a good 2-3 hours here to really appreciate it. There are some amazing things in the museum.
