The Hermitage of Betlem, an oasis of peace with wonderful views to the sea

Built at the beginning of the 19th century on the ruins of a defence tower and the ancient Binialgolfa mill, the Hermitage of Betlem was founded in 1805

Built at the beginning of the 19th century on the ruins of a defence tower and the ancient Binialgolfa mill, the Hermitage of Betlem was founded in 1805 by members of the communities of hermits of Saint Honoratus of Randa and the Holy Trinity of Valldemossa. In fact, three monks were still in residence there until 2010, living off the land and their own livestock along with donations they received from visitors who came to view the building.

It is located 280 metres above sea level and set within two quarterades of land, that used to form part of the large country estate known as the Devesa de Farrutx. The land was ceded by Jaume Morell with one single condition: that the religious building should be called Betlem and that it should be dedicated to the birth of Christ. And so it was.

A depiction of the birth presides over the altar of the small chapel of the oratory, built on the remains of the ancient defence tower, together with the refectory and dormitories of the hermits. 

The small church, finished in 1824 under the guidance of the architect Joan Rosselló, has one single nave and sculptural pieces by the artist Adrià Ferran. The main altarpiece is the work of Manuel Bayeu, who also created seven other paintings that hang on its walls, and the fresco on the dome is by Francesc Parietti.

Anyone visiting the site can see clear signs of how the monks living there in the past were self-sufficient: fruit and vegetable gardens, a threshing floor for grain, structures for keeping and feeding livestock, and a watermill and fountain called Na Bernadeta that still supplies drinking water to this day. 

There is also an easy walking route that goes from Colònia de Sant Pere, passing through places of great natural beauty and ending at Sa Coassa, the highest point of the excursion from which a stunning view of the coastline that runs from Cap Farrutx to Alcúdia can be enjoyed.
