LLUBÍ, AN OASIS IN MALLORCA
For those of you who don’t know Llubi, a pretty town located in the centre of Mallorca which releases harmony and tranquillity, it has an approximate population of 2500 people and is famous for its cultivation of capers, as well as its fields full of almond and carob trees which give it a rural feel.
WHAT CAN YOU FIND IN LLUBI?
In Llubi you’ll be able to visit some of the important elements within the Mallorcan culture such as:
· Parroquial church of Saint Feliu. Llubi’s main church. Although the first information about a chapel date back to 1297, the temple was completely constructed between 1570 and 1650. During the year of 1913 it gained the title of rectory, and it’s also formed by the Chapel of Roser and a bell-tower of neo-gothic style.
· The borough Crosses: These famous constructions take up various corners of Llubi and used to serve as marking points for the town’s borders. To be precise we can find three of them:
- The cross of the Son Rafal windmill.
- The cross of Son Ramis.
- The Cross.
- The cross of Son Setrill.
· Windmills: Within Llubi we can still find 6 of these constructions which used to serve as grain grinders. Today they are used as homes, and are conserved to preserve the beauty and memory of the town.
· Hermitage of of the Holy Christ of the Health of Remedy: This chapel is located on the outskirts of Llubi, approximately a kilometer from its center. It was built in 1896 and mainly served as a community of hermits, but it was then renovated and passed on to be a place of reverence of Saint Christ.
· Talaiots dels racons: These two constructions are formed by a talaiot of approximately 5 meters which is well preserved and by a circular formation which isn’t well maintained. We can also find some ruins here which are supposed to have been a sanctuary.
· Apiculture museum. A whole museum with a private apiculture collection where the evolution of such throughout the pass of years is explained. It can be found in the Moli den Suau windmill.
