Llucmajor – history and culture very close
In the history books Llucmajor received from a rather regrettable event for Mallorca. Because this is where the admittedly short period of the Majorcan monarchy ended in 1349. At this time, Jaume III was in power and led the fortunes of the island. In fact, at that time Mallorca could excel through thriving trade and successes in the shipping industry – in short: the economy was flourishing. In the fight against the power-obsessed Pedro IV of Aragon, who made claims on the island, however, King Jaume III lost his life and Mallorca thus his autonomy. Visitors to the city are alerted to this momentous event by a memorial to the fallen king.
Perfect location for many-sided activities
The domestic town of Llucmajor is just in the right place for up-and-coming holidaymakers. Directly between Palma de Mallorca, which is about 20 kilometers away and Santanyi lying, but also with connection to Campos, Felanitx and Manacor are city trips from Llucmajor from almost mandatory. In this varied environment offers cultural holidays in the best way. For example, to the south of the city located caves, which are dated back to the 3rd millennium BC. For the bathing fun can be explored from here but also the beautiful and multi-faceted east coast of the island, which holds countless small bays with fine sandy beaches.
However, Llucmajor not only has a lot to offer, but also heights: on the way to Algaida lies Table Mountain Randa. With its 549 meters, it is the highest peak in the island center. Three sanctuaries line the way to the highest platform of the mountain: the Santuari de Nostra Senyora de Gracia, the Santuari de Sant Honorat and the Santuari de Nostra Senyora de Cura. The incredible view over the island attracts many tourists – so the most beautiful is the trip to this sublime place outside the main travel times. From Llucamajor there is also a hiking trail to the monastery hill Randa.
Downtown Llucmajor is often described as unspectacular. Nonetheless, take a walk through the narrow streets to catch the charm of the small town. Striking are the many snack bars and pubs that line the Plaça d’Espanya, the central square of the city. But the small historic coffee houses and an old fish market hall from 1915 are popular destinations for a city visit. If you’re out into nature, why not go on a bike ride or horseback ride on the horse? Especially at its peak, the area around Llucmajor transforms into a pink paradise of apricot and almond blossoms. Athletes are the golf courses Son Antem I and II in the immediate vicinity available. Some of the better hotels in the area offer rest and pamper day visitors with their excellent spa services.
