Monasterio de Lluc - Monastery of Lluc, Majorca Island: 5 reviews and 11 photos
An amazing place worth a visit. This monastery was founded in 1121 by Pfalzgraf Otto dedicated to Saint James. It is set up in the olive grooves few kilometers from the southern coast of Mallorca. It is still a religious pilgrimage for many today who come particularly to see the small dark statue of the Nuestra Senora de Lluc,"La Moreneta", which has an accompanying Christian story along the lines of a shepherd Luke who found a coloured statue in the woods and he took it to a monk who was a little perturbed on seeing the virgin statue glow. Follow the finger of the statue of Bishop Campins, a patron of the church who renovated it in the 1900s and you'll find the Virgin statue. Bishop Campins by the way commissioned Gaudi to renovate the basilica and to build its Way of the Cross. The views of the mountains up here are magnificent as well!
