Default Visiting LLuc.

Hi,
I'm visiting Puerto Pollensa very soon and one of the excursions I wish to do is visit Lluc for the first time. The bus leaves P.P. at 10.00am but does it definitly stop at Lluc on the way back? Is it worth visiting Sa Calobra or is it very touristy? Thanks for any info given as much appreciated.

Hi Jojo21,

Not sure re the buses, but Lluc is well worth a visit. The view at the top of the hill where the large cross stands to the rear of the monastry is breathtaking. So quiet and peaceful.
Sa calobra is a bit touristy, with boat and bus trips arriving. Best to visit early morning or about 4.00pm. Still worth a visit.

New areas have been opened for visitors, this is reported in the El conseller Gómez y el obispo Salinas 'recorren' el «Corazón de Mallorca» en Lluc » Part Forana » Noticias » Ultima Hora Mallorca

The Sanctuary of Lluc has released new reception rooms, welcoming space, located in one of the towers of entry, where through an interactive table can all sacred places. The Bishop of Mallorca, Javier Salinas and Vice President of the Government and Minister of the Presidency, Antonio Gomez, visited the new rooms this morning, on the occasion of his inauguration and have come accompanied by the prior of the Sanctuary, Antoni Vallespir, the mayor of Escorca, Antoni Solivellas, and President the FELIB, John Alberti, as reported by the Government. 's room called "Heart of Mallorca" welcomes the projection of a 3D audio documentary is about the history of the Sanctuary and the experience of a pilgrim who visits, complete with a video on the values ​​of the Serra de Tramuntana. 's "Pastoral Area" has been created to cater to visitors and people who need a spiritual host, and the room "Petit Lluc" is a children's area set in traditional legends Lluc through words and drawings of Pedro Juan. 's performance held in the sanctuary has also included the reform of the pool and the refurbishment of the changing rooms, and the placement of new signage on the outside and inside the enclosure with explanatory information in four languages, as well as new routes to facilitate the visit.

I think that Lluc is a wonderful place to visit for many differing reasons. Yes it can be so peaceful up there - can also be quite busy - and the views / countryside around Lluc are magnificent as are the Monastery buildings themselves. Also look out for the times that the choir sings each day, it can be very moving and atmospheric.
Regarding new areas, etc. Well not exactly new but 'revised' car parking arrangements from previous years. Car parking is now to be paid for... controlled both going in and coming out. It's a sliding scale, depending how long you stay. Obviously you won't be affected if you travel by bus. See this forum for bus timetable (look under 'Once You're There' - left hand side).
