All great reasons to spend a weekend in El Pla at the beginning of spring. How about spending it in our rural hotel in the heart of Mallorca?

If, in addition, you like taking photos –and you aren’t allergic to these flowers – you will have the opportunity to take some really spectacular pictures. The poppy fields make a fantastic backdrop.

Rural Hotel in Mallorca: discover the scenery and deep rooted tradition of El Pla
With the arrival of the good weather, taking a trip to the country combining scenery and cultural tradition is an attractive proposal. If you decide to go, we can recommend a walk to the Talaiot des Racons, situated on the road from Llubi to Sineu. Total immersion in ancient Mallorca and the prehistorical monuments which belong to a unique culture which you will only see in the Balearic Islands: the talayotica culture. The central part of Mallorca, which is also called El Pla, has rich, deep rooted traditions which make it, according to many people, the essence of the island.

La Festa de l’Ermita, popular tradition just a few steps away if you are staying in our Petit Hotel
Spring also signifies traditional festivities. With the start of the good weather and nature coming out in all its glory, the small towns of Mallorca bustle with festivities and different activities. The Festa d l’Ermita is held in Llubi on the first Tuesday after Easter.
This festivity starts with a climb up to the Shrine of Santo Cristo del Remedio. This is traditionally done on foot but nowadays it is possible to drive there. Afterwards there is a mass with the “cants del goigs” (joyous songs), traditional religious music characteristic of Catalan speaking areas.
After the pure religious part of the celebration, the Festa de l’Ermita dispalys a lot of leisure events such as sportive activities, drawing contests, traditional dances, food tasting and much more.
The Festa de l’Ermita is just one of the traditional festivities held in Llubi, a town which, moreover, has lots of other attractions. If you want to find out more about it, consult our blog article about the charms of Llubí.
