Un Monasterio De San Salvador. Felanitx, Spain

This old hermitage, 509m above sea level at the highest point of the Serra de Llevant, offering fantastic views over the island, was the senior house of Mallorca's monastic order and the last to lose its monks in 1992.

It is still a popular place of pilgrimage, containing a fine carved alabaster retable and is flanked by two enormous landmarks: on one side a 14m stone cross, on the other a 35m column topped by a statue of Christ holding out his right hand in blessing.

Like other former monasteries, Sant Salvador has a few simple rooms available for pilgrims and visitors.
