Sa Placa Sineu Mallorca

The Restaurant Sa Placa, situated on the square by the church main entrance. It is quite busy around lunch time, so be prepared for some waiting. You will want to try the famous dish called "frito mallorquin" here.

Sineu Mallorca

The church of Sineu is a remarkable landmark, regardless by which direction you approach the town.

Randa Mallorca

The small church of Randa, 5 kilometers south of Algaida. From Randa you can hike (or drive) all the way up to the top of the mountain Puig de Randa. The sidetrip is really worth it, as you will encounter several excellent views and three monasteries.

Oratorio de Nuestra Senyora de Gracia Mallorca

The first monastery that you will come across is the Oratorio de Nuestra Senyora de Gracia. Its entrance is situated in a narrow curve, so watch out to not miss it. The Oratorio contains a beautiful chapel (see next photo), but it also offers conference rooms (please call 971 180 479 for inquiries).

Oratorio de Nuestra Senyora de Gracia

This is the Oratorio de Nuestra Senyora de Gracia - a holy place. Some of the interior is from the original chapel "Santa Ana" that was built in the 18th century here. Unfortunately, it did not survive.

Nuestra Senyora de Cura de Randa Mallorca

On the top of the mountain you will finally reach Nuestra Senyora de Cura, a big monastery founded in 1275.

Monastery Randa Mallorca

Nuestra Senyora de Cura is located 540 meters above the sea, and once the day tourists are gone, it offers true tranquility and peace. There is even a small hotel up here, with simple yet stylish rooms.

Randa Monastery Mallorca

One part of the Monastery is dedicated to an exhibition of agricultural tools of the past. The cat (in the lower right corner) obviously enjoys the place. :-)
