Inspriring sanctuary on top of a mountain with gorgeous views of Mallorca. Built in the 1300's.

Road up to the sanctuary is windy but well worth it. We made it up to the top 15 minutes before the sun set. It can get a bit windy and chilly up there so bring a sweater just in case.

Parking is free.

The surroundings of this now disused Gothic church offer spectacular views across the island. The price for seeing this is a steep tortuous drive to the summit which is not for the faint-hearted. A tip for drivers - I was told that coach drivers have an arrangement wherby they go up between 9.30 and 10.30 and down between 10,30 and 11.30. Make sure you don't go against this flow and note that coaches cannot make the hairpin bends in one go. We won't talk about the cyclists.
The views are a worthwhile reward and the church has an attractive Baroque interior. It also contains toilets and a cafe, not to be confused with the restaurant of the boutique hotel in the former church buildings next door.

The road to get to the top had loads of twists and turns so you just need to go steady to get to the top but it's so worth it! The views from the top are spectacular! We went on a clear day and you can see for miles! We also went into the church which was nice inside and then walked across to the cross and took more pictures there.

There is a little restaurant/bar at the top to sit and have a drink.

I'd really recommend a visit purely for the amazing views

Beautiful view to Maljorca island. Breathtaking road trip up the hill. My heart got into my heels several times while got to the top but it's really worth it!

A great drive up the steep mountain roads to this Sanctuary. Parking at the top allows you to walk to the monument and then on to the Church which is a beautiful place. There is also a cafe for refreshments.
