The cultural tour through hermitages and oratories of Mallorca offers an interesting value for your visit to the island. Each of the hermitages and monasteries has an interest in itself, and were built over eight centuries, coinciding with periods of economic prosperity.
The visit can be made on foot, on horseback, by bicycle or by car, although some places are not accessible to conventional vehicles. The route can last as long as you want and here we propose a list of the main attractions on the Tramuntana coast, in the area of Palma de Mallorca, in the north and northeast, and in Migjorn.
One of the main attractions is the Monastery of San Bernat de la Real, built in the 13th century. In the Muslim period it was the garden of a governor and later, after the conquest, the Cistercian monks installed their monastery here until 1560. At the present time it houses the Balearic Library, with an important bibliographical baggage, and every day 19 of August a great pilgrimage takes place from the Plaça de Cort of Palma to the monastery.
For those interested in cycling this route, we offer a cycling route through the Serra Tramuntana, with a distance of 76 km, ascent of 1360 m and descent of 1360 m.
At Liberty Cycling Routes we focus on providing you with a unique and cultural experience through cycling. Join us on this adventure through the beautiful island of Mallorca!
