Santuari de Cura
Place of worship at Santuari de Cura, overlooked by Our Lady of Healing (La Virgen de Cura), where mass currently takes place every Sunday at 12pm. A holy place with a variety of inscriptions that lead us to believe it was built in different eras, you can see that it was greatly influenced by the ancient Franciscan tradition thanks to the location of a nativity scene at the entrance to the chapel.
Place of retreat and silence
The cave of Ramon Llull is situated just before the entrance to the Santuari de Cura (Sanctuary of Healing), on the left-hand side and along a well signposted path. A place of silence, where the world-renowned Mallorcan lived in isolation and received enlightenment with the successive vision of the crucified Christ, surrendering himself to meditation and contemplation, nicknamed Doctor Illuminatus. The cave can be visited by asking for the keys at the restaurant.
