We drove to Lluc only to find the monastery closed (5pm it`s the time) but the trip itself was totally worth the effort. The place is at 1300m above sea level and there is a steep hill you have to climb which takes quite a while. On your way you will see some unique forms of vegetation which I`m guessing are typical Mediterranean, gorgeous flowers and some unusual trees, rocks and blue sky. We took some gorgeous photos on the way down from Lluc and experienced quite a thrill as the road is a bit narrow and you can see all the way doooooowwwnnn :-) which is quite a long way considering you`re climbing starting at the sea level.
