The ermita itself is not always open but it was when we visited - it has a simple whitewashed interior and a wooden crucifix dating from the 14th century. The drive up is amazing although the road is very narrow in places. There are several walks that start from here including one into the town of Betlem which takes about 40 minutes according to the noticeboard

We parked near the coast and walked up a very rocky, winding path, not suitable for anyone with disabilities or wearing sandals. It's quite a trek and though Ermita de Betlem is peaceful and has an understated beauty, it's not stunning compared to other Santuari's and Ermita's on the island, but then it was a haven for hermits and not designed to be stunning. If you like walking, it makes an enjoyable morning or afternoon out.

We hiked up from the coast at Betlem to this small hermitage in the mountains. The 50-minute hike is moderately challenging along a rocky path through picturesque countryside (wear decent walking shoes). The Hermitage has clearly seen more active days since its founding in the late 1700s-early 1800s, but still well worth the visit, either by walking in, cycling, or driving up a winding road. It is fascinating to reflect on the attempts at self-sufficiency in this inspiring natural setting high above the ocean, surrounded by craggy outcrops of stone. Be sure to visit the tranquil and beautiful grove - grotto - shrine a 5-minutes walk from the monastery proper.

We decided to drive to Ermita de Betlem.
The road is narrow with numerous 180 degree hairpin bends. Quite an arduous drive particularly with cyclists on the road and cars coming from the other direction.
It took approx 30 long minutes.
There were few parking spaces when we got there and it was just a simple church.
There were some spectacular views of the sea on the way but nowhere at all to stop the car to take pictures.
Not worth the drive IMO.

Beautiful drive through national park area along windy, steep but well maintained roads. The views are glorious but not many viewpoint stops along the road so you may need to stop on the road itself to take in the view or take photos. The church and surrounding area is so peaceful and calm. We came from a day at the small beach at Colonial de Sant Pere, a lovely quiet town which is also worth a visit for coffee/meal/swim.

The Ermita as such is maybe not so extremely special. But the location is beautiful. The best however, the windy road, with beautiful views. But you got to be careful, the mountain road is narrow, very narrow....take care

Had a walk from Arta to ermita. About 1.5 hours walk through a nature park. The tour up to ermita is fantastic and the ermita is nice with a great view over the Alcudia bay

The hermitage itself was small and not that spectacular but the drive out was amazing. Very winding and narrow and definitely not for the faint-hearted, but the views of the mountains and views over Alcudia Bay were breathtaking. A great ride for cyclists who could stop and absorb tne scene as there were no pull ins for motorists. Very peaceful at the hermitage and there were three walks ranging from 4 minutes to an hour.

15min by car from Artà, nice old monk residence and small church. But the best are the excellent views during sunset , where you can enjoy the sun setting down behind the Serra de Tramuntana mountains

Not so easy to access! From the Colonia St Pere- Betlem road there is a well marked footpath, uphill, contoured but a bit rocky underfoot, perhaps 40 to 50 minutes, easy for children though and passing the spring near the top. From Arta (very narrow streets, not easy} cars can make it up to the Monastery via a switchback road ( resurfaced) beset by sheer drops and sweating cyclists! The beautiful entrance to the Monastery, wonderful views and isolation are your reward. For the hardy there are several paths meandering away over the hills, otherwise a quick swig from the water bottle and back down the way you came up! On our 4th visit the place still exudes charm BUT, on no account visit the loo!!
