THE HERMITAGE OF THE HOLY TRINITY

THE HERMITAGE OF THE HOLY TRINITY

If you continue along the MA-10 road heading towards Deià and Sóller, 3 km from the town you will come to Can Costa, the houses of an old Mallorcan estate that have now been turned into a restaurant where you can enjoy delicious traditional Mallorcan cuisine. Opposite, you will find the detour towards the hermitage. It is a narrow and paved path that ascends, leading to the hermitage of the Holy Trinity, known as the hermitage of Valldemossa. You can make the ascent by car or, if you prefer, you can enjoy a lovely stroll.

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.
