It is believed that the name of Lluc comes from the Latin lucus meaning sacred wood, which gives us an insight into the beliefs of the first inhabitants of the area: this excursion shows us some of the archaeological remains they left behind: Duration: less than one hour.
We head towards the football field and cross the wooden bridge from which we can see the Puig de les Monges, (a group of rocks which have been eroded by water and are called lapiaz). We climb past rocks and holm oaks until we come across the remains of a charcoal burners' oven and a sign post pointing us toward "El Camell".
After following the path for a few minutes it will soon become clear why this particular rock is popularly know as "the camel" or "the dromedary".
We head back to the main path and continue until we come to the remains of another charcoal oven. About 5 minutes further on there is a fork in the road. We follow the right hand path which leads us to the cave of the Cometa des Morts, the site of Bronze and Iron Age burials. The site was excavated by Fr Cristòfol Veny and artefacts from here can be seen in the Museum of Lluc.
