This route will transport you along a road of miracles and legends, nearly always bearing relation to Virgin Mary, the patron saint of Majorca. Your journey will begin by leaving the town of Caimari on Calle de Nostra Senyora de Lluc, which is also the Inca-Lluc Ma2130 road.
In not-so-distant times, you could have found inns here that housed the pilgrims before starting their final climb to the sanctuary.
Where the road goes into its first curve to the right, leave the asphalt to take the first section of the old road, which has remains of the original cobblestones even today, crossing through dense forests of aleppo pine trees (Pinus halepensis), and holm oaks (Quercus ilex). Here you can enjoy one of the most emblematic sceneries of Majorca, with the slope of the mountain festooned with a sea of olive trees and terraced in levels with the dry-stone plots of land, created in times immemorial, with the aim of converting hostile lands into a space suitable for crops.
After flanking the Penya de Cavall Bernat boulder, arising to the right of the road, cross the road, climbing along a narrower section known as Costa Llarga, until reaching the houses of Son Canta, also on the right.
Keep going up along the same road till you come across the houses of El Barracar, which were the property of the Lluc Sanctuary for many centuries, serving as an inn for the pilgrims. From here, you will embark on the longest paved section, where the path and the road are often intertwined. At this point, on days with good visibility, travellers will have the chance to enjoy one of the best views imaginable over Pollença Bay. Ahead, after crossing a barrier to the left of the road, once again follow the former road, known along this section as the Camí de Sa Llonganissa (Sausage Road), due to the curve it traces.
This path ascends in the direction of Bretxa Vella, an artificial corridor built in 1708, to reach the houses of Es Guix, whose name proceeds from gypsum mining that was done in the region.
Now you will leave the path to the left that climbs to Puig de Massanella to go down a section of the Camí Vell de Lluc, bypassing the Font des Guix, until you reach the road again, at Coll de Sa Batalla, today occupied by a petrol station.
