Lluc - Binifaldo

INFORMATION

The monastery of Lluc is considered of being the most important religious sites in Mallorca; surrounded by the green slopes of the Serra Tramuntana it is a classic tourist sight of all kinds of tourists and Mallorcans. The back lands of the Lluc monastery are heavily forested and surprisingly quiet, only a few minutes from the monastery you will find yourself in another world. Here the extremely weathered limestone has created a beautiful landscape with extraordinary shapes. A nice and relaxed walk in the hinterlands of the monastery; you will have the opportunity to shortcut the walk from Bibifaldó back to Lluc or to add an extra climb to Coll de Pedregat. This walk is apt for the entire family and is a perfect match with a visit to the monastery of Lluc.
