"monastery of Lluc" Escorca by mindcrime

Escorca Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 65 photos

Escorca municipally is a small town of Mallorca island with only 350 inhabitants located at NW part of the island, about 50km from Palma de Mallorca.
It located between Soller(33km) and Pollenca(19km) if you happen to tour on the west north part checking all these beautiful places in Serra de Tramuntana (Escorca its in the middle)

We didn’t really visit the town but the famous monastery of Lluc that is located in the general area. It’s an important religious place with a nice church and a famous boys’ choir. After a long day on towns along the west coast it was very refreshing visiting a place at 500m, we rest for a while and I cant really describe how great the cold beer was (hopefully there is cafeteria at the monastery). We saw many bikers during our visit, the old cells of the monks are now rental rooms. People use the area as a base for hiking, mountain bike etc

Escorca is a great starting point for experienced hikers also, you can try (if you dare) to climb the highest peaks of the island here:
Tomir at 1,103m, Puig Massanella at 1,352m and the highest one which is Puig Major at 1443m
