Guide to the Sanctuary

Hill of the Rosarys

From the Plaza del Lledoner, behind the La Fonda Restaurant, a stone path leads up to the spot where, according to tradition, the Holy Figure of the Virgin of Lluc was discovered.

As you follow the path you will pass the small cemetery (an oasis of peace in the shade of the holm oak trees) and the five stone monuments with three bronze reliefs that represent the mysteries of the Rosary (joy, pain and glory, like life itself!). These are true works of art by the architects Joan Rubiˇ and Guillem ReynÚs and the sculptor Josep Llimona, overseen by Antoni Gaudi himself.

At the summit, crowned by the sign of the cross, you can rest for a while and enjoy the magnificent view of the valleys of Lluc and Aubarca, the rooftops of the Sanctuary, and the mountains, that in the winter are often covered with snow.

The visit takes between 20 and 30 minutes, and is well worth it. You will no doubt meet tourists who are following the path through curiosity, but may well come across a pilgrim, stopping to pray as they make the ascent.
