We hired a car for only two days during our time on Mallorca so had a lot to fit in! We visited the monastery on a recommendation and we were so glad that we did. Visiting is good value (5€ per adult and children are free as is the parking once you buy a ticket to the site (which also... More

This monastery is of no interest to anyone but pilgrims. Apart from the setting in the mountains that is truly breathtaking, nothing in the buildings is of much interest. I resented the fact that the place makes a targeted effort to impose its supposed spirituality on unsuspecting tourists, making us wear "sm" badges (which stands for "spiritual mallorca", they seem...

This lovely monastery is high in the mountains and its quite a trek in car along mountain roads to get there. There are a couple of shops with a lovely gift shop and a couple of restaurants/cafes. The actual church is lovely and the museum is interesting. The botanical gardens do not look particularly well cared for, but as I'm... More

You should not miss the museum/ art galleries at Lluc Sanctuary as they alone are worth the journey, museum entrance fee (payable at museum entrance but included if you have bought a parking ticket at the car park) and at least two hours of your time. We only came out in the end because we needed to sit down and... More

I booked two rooms for one night to allow us to walk the pilgrims trail from Caimari to lluc. Unfortunately the weather was against us - So we arrived by car. We sampled the various options for eating later that night and selected the restaurant in the main monestary. We booked a table and thank goodness we did, full of... More

Made the quite terrifying drive up into the mountains to Lluc Monastery whilst on a weeks break in Majorca recently. It really is a pilgrimage to get there as the roads are narrow & fairly scary. This wasn't helped by the huge numbers of Lycra clad cyclists that were getting in the way! Once we got there parked up at... More

The drive up is not for the faint hearted but the Monastry is great, take the little walk up and around to the cross at the top for amazing views over the surrounding mountains. Only had a drink in the little cafe round the side which avoided the dozens of cyclists in the main square.

A bit of a mix between a working monastery and a hotel / tourist attraction. Nice walks around the grounds but not much sense of a religious community (maybe this is hidden for privacy). Expensive parking. A little bit cheeky. Great bakery.

To get there, you will see many beautiful views. Once you get there, enjoy silent walking in the botanical garden and go to the top of the hill to the bottom of the cross. The view from the top is really wonderful and worth 20 min or so walk up. We bought some pastries at the bakery in the sanctuary... More
