The authentic Mallorca is characterised by its unique culture, filled with history that is etched in its craft and gourmet products, views and beaches. But the island is also an especially attractive place for lovers of trekking and particularly bicyclists.
That’s why we invite you to peddcycle till you reach Puig de Randa, a mere 10 Km from the hotel where if you stop at the Cueva de Ramón Llull you’ll be able to visit three sanctuaries: Santuari de Gracia, Cueva del Beato Ramón Llull and the Santuari de Cura.
The route from here is called Sa Font, at the first curve in the road, on the right you’ll notice an easy access zone towards an ancient path, partially paved in some parts, 10 minutes from the large entrance gate of the Santuario de Gràcia. This sanctuary was built originally in the shadow of a large rocky outcrop, a place of pilgrimage that offers extraordinary views.
You can then continue the route from the entrance gate taking the road to the right towards Puig till you get to the Sant Honorat esplanade. There you’ll find the Santuari de Cura 3.4 Km along the path way.
Before visiting we recommend approaching by the roadway on the left, the one that goes past the electrical meters where you’ll come face to face with some metal barriers. From this point on your left a pathway brings you into the cave of the beatified Ramón Llull.
A cave that looks like it’s much bigger on the inside than you might think from looking at it but has over the years has been reduced because of natural landslides. Beside the entrance is a statue of the saint that has unfortunately been vandalised, together with a stone that commemorates the apparition of Jesus to the saint.
Finally from this point you only have one option, to enjoy the route back. A return journey that offers exceptional views over Pla de Mallorca and the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range.Life
