    Sant Salvador is located 509 meters above sea level on the mountain Puig de Sant Salvador.
    The last section you drive up in the pine forest from curve to curve. When you are upstairs and the trains are hanging on your handlebars, drive to the monastery on the right. In front of the entrance there is the best water in Mallorca (fresh well water without paying).

    At the weekend you can also grab something to nibble and join the locals who like to grill up here.

    In spring you are neither in Felantix, nor on the mountain and certainly not in between a lonely (r) road cyclist (in). There is always a lot going on the track.

    It is a wonderful climb, partly in the shade and with a great view as a reward.

    The 5 km climb is worthwhile for a wonderful panoramic view

    Interesting to read why this place is a cycling mecca. Most cycling enthusiasts certainly know that.

    Narrow serpentines lead to the summit. Above is a monastery and 2 restaurants or cafes.

    In the entrance area of the pilgrimage chapel, the jerseys of the Mallorcan cycling world champion Guillermo Mortimer can be admired.
    After half of the inhabitants of Felanitx were killed by the plague in 1348, the city council decided to build a church on the nearby mountain called Sant Salvador in gratitude for saving the remaining inhabitants, which was completed a year later. The current church was built between 1707 and 1734 and was built because the first one was no longer able to cope with the stream of pilgrims that came up the mountain on the holidays.
    The city of Felanitx, which until then was the owner of Sant Salvador, auctioned the area in 1885. The new owner was the Felanitx citizen Don Antonio Pug, who was also the bishop of Puerto Rico. He finally handed the complex over to the diocese of Mallorca, which entrusted it to a brotherhood of hermit monks.
    However, the time of the monks was finally over in 1992 at Sant Salvador. Since then, the property has been managed by two Mallorcan families and the small room rental has now become a hotel.

    A “must climb” in the east of the island. 5 km of serpentines at its finest 😅
    Departing with oncoming traffic, but usually very considerate drivers, are outnumbered anyway 😉

    Even climb over 4.8 km with a 6.4% gradient. Sant Salvador is also popular in the cold season.
