A Very Long Walk to Lluc

The big annual walk from Palma de Mallorca up into the mountains and on to the Monasterio de Lluc happens in early August. It is called the Marxa des Güell a Lluc a peu

But some keen walkers do not live in Palma. They might live in Pollença, or Santanyí, or Porreres, or Felanitx. For them, an annual walk is organized right from their doorsteps (well, from their local townhalls). Last Saturday, it was this year’s XXIX Pujada a Lluc a Peu de la Part Forana, and some 10,000 walkers (and, some of them, pilgrims) are said to have participated. 

People from the communities in the Pla, the Migjorn and the Llevant set off from their respective villages on Saturday evening and made their way to Inca, where they congregated on Sunday morning at 04h00. Walkers from Bunyola, Esporles, Sóller or Valldemossa made their way to Lluc directly up through Biniaraix. And people from Pollença hiked up the old Camino de Lluc. Most participants got to Lluc in the early hours of the morning. It was a long and very likely, rather exhausting hike. 

The smallish group of enthusiasts from Felanitx, shown here before their departure, had probably the longest walk of all, with close to 60 km. Some of them repeat the task, every year. Bravo

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Spain. The date: September 13th, 2008. The time was 19:59:37.
