ESCORCA

 
Santuario de Lluc
Santuario de Lluc
In the mountains of Escorca the landscape becomes grandiose, monumental – old paths traverse holm-oak woods, with springs and places as impressive as the Torrent de Pareis or Sa Calobra. This enormous, sparsely populated municipality has the highest peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, headed by Puig Major (1445 m), and endures the most extreme climate of Mallorca, with snow in winter. The Lluc Sanctuary is the spiritual centre of the island, the starting point for numerous excursions, with guest quarters, recreational zones and a camping area.
