About three kilometers from Sóller we find a tiny temple surrounded by nature, with Gaudinian-inspired architecture and an interior that evokes a cave: Sa Capelleta is a magical place that you have to visit during your stay in our valley.

Following the GR-221 route between Sóller and Fornalutx, the traveler will arrive at this hidden place in Sóller just 20 minutes after the route has begun. The road is on the rise and can raise the difficulty of the route a bit but nevertheless it's suitable for all audiences. In addition, when we arrive at our destination we can observe magnificent views of the town of Sóller and the entire valley.

Blessed on June 17, 1917, the "Sanctuary of Santa Maria de l'Olivar des Fenàs" or "Sa Capelleta" is a modernist style building built of cut and overlapping stones and whose interior evokes the cave of "Mare de Déu de Lourdes. "

The natural light that enters through the openings and windows of the temple is combined with the statues of the "Immaculate" and "Santa Bernadeta" and the stalactites to give a unique look inside.

This unique building is located next to the monastery of "Santuari de Santa Maria de l'Olivar des Fenàs" built between 1943 and 1944 thanks to the donations of some rich Soller people and inhabited and cared for by the regular Augustinian canons of St. Augustine.
