Monastry of Miramar

Monastry of Miramar

The monastery of Miramar can be found in a truly unique place between Valldemossa and Deià. This monastery looks back on ancient history and culture.
Monastery of Miramar was founded by King Jaume II in 1276 as a missionary school as a request by Ramon Llull. Franciscan Ramon Llull, philosopher, poet, theologian and missionary, he invested in the construction of the monastery of Miramar in his native island. The aim of this monastery was to train missionaries. Later on in the 19th century the Archduke of Austria, Luis Salvador bought the estate after he had fallen in love with the place. He found it very run down so he restored it to its full beauty after.
Nowadays Monastery of Miramar is owned by the Vives family, but it is open to the public visitors. There is a small museum where visitors can view objects, documents and works of art. Inside the house you can see various graphic works, 18th century presenting the monk’s kitchen and sculptures that make it one of the most interesting cultural sites of the Sierra de Tramuntana. Leaving the house you can access a garden with a spectacular viewpoint from where you can see very beautiful views of the sea.
