The road alone which takes you to this splendid show of architectural wonder is enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck jump to attention. If you are a fan of "Top Gear" then this is a must. For those of you who would rather not drive up to the top of the 500m high hill/mountain then you can park at the bottom and hike up. At the top there is a 360° view of the island. Porto Colom is the closest coastal village you can see. There is a beautiful monastery you can walk around and have a sit down in for a short rest, and, maybe even some reflection if that's what your into. There are two restaurants although I believe one to be apart of the hotel which has been built into the main part of the monastery. You have two giant statues with viewing areas, which are perfect for the selfie crews to go crazy with. Bottom line is. If you have the time and fancy adding to your list of memories then this is definitely worth a visit plus it's FREE!!!!

Definetly worth a visit while in Mallorca. We had dinner at the restaurant Ave Maria inside the sanctuary and watched the sunset.
Just a few others there in the evening. Buses go up there during daytime and its probably more crowded then.

Visited this lovely place as part of a wonderful holiday to Majorca. Drive there was a real thrill for my partner who counted 30 hairpin bends. The views were awesome , you could see for miles at the top.
Monastery itself is interesting, well kept and well worth a visit.
There is a cafe restaurant as part of the monastery where you can enjoy the view while having lunch or a snack. Food is pricey but you are paying for the view as well
There are plenty of picnic tables if you brought own food and lots of photo opportunities

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.
