Santuari de Sant Salvador, Felanitx,
Sant Salvador Sanctuary- Felanitx – The Sant Salvador Sanctuary is located at San Salvador mount. The current temple was built at the start of the 18th century on the remains of a former 14th century church built by King Pedro IV de Aragón and erected by dint of the black death which caused the decease of half of the population in 1384. In its interior there is a beautiful image of the Virgin and a magnificent Gothic retable.
At the top of the mount near the sanctuary known as El Picot, worthy of special mention is a stone cross built in the mid-20th century which replaced a previous one made of iron and copper.
