Very well-known excursion and hiking destination, accordingly heavily frequented. In addition to the well-attended gastronomy, there is also a rest area with tables and benches for a less expensive rest. The monastery chapel is much quieter than in the back of the monastery with its restaurants and rest area.The origin of the mountain Randa:
An ancient legend tells that a giant crossed the Mediterranean from Algiers a long time ago. On his head he carried a basket full of stones and earth, and he had tied a ship under his feet so that he would not go under. In a storm off Cabrera, both ships drifted apart and in order not to lose balance, he supported himself with his stick on the coast of Cala Pi. But it didn't help, he fell anyway and the contents of his basket poured into the Mallorca plain. From this the mountain Randa came into being. And from a sweat drop that hit the ground next to the mountain, the source Na Tomasa was created.
But that's just a legend, the real story is much more terrifying:
The mountain Randa is hollow on the inside and is supported by four golden columns. If the pillars break, not only the mountain but all of Mallorca collapse. And not only that, "The waves of the sea will collapse over Mallorca, and that will be the end of the world," it says in the phophacy. The Mallorcan people say that three of the pillars have already broken and the fourth is damaged.
