THE HERMITAGE OF THE HOLY TRINITY

THE HERMITAGE OF THE HOLY TRINITY

The hermitage is found on a detour of the MA-10 road heading towards Deià and Sóller, 3km from the town. The detour is found opposite the restaurant Can Costa, it is a narrow and paved path that ascends, leading to the hermitage of the Holy Trinity, known as the hermitage of Valldemossa.

The hermetic and religious life of this side of the coast began in the 13th century, when Ramon Llull founded the monastery, and the school of oriental languages in Miramar, 1276-1293. Subsequently, hermit activity continued along this part of the coastline, as there is confirmation of hermits between 1395 and 1399, living in caves or in Miramar itself. Various small buildings were erected, named the old hermitages, and they now lie in ruins. That was until the arrival of the 17th century, as in 1648, Joan Mir de la Concepió, an old follower of Ramon Llull and creator of the congregation of Sant Pau and Sant Antoni, founded the hermitage of the Holy Trinity, with the current chapel that dates back to 1703. It is currently inhabited by hermits that lead a secluded and contemplative life.

Outside the heritage, on one side you will see a small vegetable garden that has been magnificently ploughed. A small plaza welcomes visitors and offers little stone tables that will allow you to enjoy a great picnic under the holm oaks with your family. When you enter the hermitage, you will find an inside patio with an old well and beautiful palm trees. To the right, a splendid vantage point opens up before the eyes of walkers, offering views that are really spectacular.
