Overview

The Sanctuary of la Mare de Déu de Sant Salvador is a monastery located around 500 meters above sea level. It was built in the mid 14-th century around the time the Black Death was raging across Europe. Albeit the road up to the monastery being fairly narrow (cars going in both directions), it is well worth the visit. Alternatively, the area is also great for hiking, and you can hike from the bottom to the Monastery at the top. Also if you are an experienced cyclist, this steep climb is an amazing challenge. If arriving by car, take the PM-4010 road, then the PMV-4011.

How you get to the top depends on your personal preference.

The view once at the top is absolutely spectacular. Depending where you stand, you'll be able to see the sweeping plains, the southeast coast, the Castle of Santueri and, on clear days, Cabrera island.

There are also several picnic benches located within the trees behind the parking area, which is inviting for a family picnic. Just be cautious as it is steep in certain areas for younger children. There is also a café which serves a few dishes and has cold drinks next to the entrance of the church.

There is currently a church that can be visited and if you find a specific slot (we won't tell you where, aside from that it is inside the church), throw in €2 and watch the cool light show. A nifty feature, especially for children.

There is a special celebration in honor of La Mare de Déu feast day on 8th September. The monument on one side of the area is to Christ the King which was inaugurated in 1934. This large 7 meter statue stands upon a 37 meter platform.

The church is open daily between 7.00 and 20.00. Mass is celebrated on Sundays at 18.00.
