Pujada a Lluc

The walk will be held on the night of the 9th and 10th of September, with starting points from 45 municipalities on the island, and is expected to attract more than 5,000 participants.

The climb, organized by the Associació de Antics Blavets – to be held the night of 9 to 10 September with departure points from 45 municipalities of Mallorca – expects to gather more than 5,000 pilgrims.

“We have achieved it. We are very satisfied because this year the climb can be held normally, despite the uncertainties. The procedure was stalled and the Pujada a Lluc de la Part Forana was in serious danger. But after months of work, we have found a solution so that this year we can celebrate this deep-rooted tradition as it has been celebrated for 42 years, from the different municipalities of our island,” assured Galmés.

For his part, the president of the Associació de Antics Blavets, Llorenç Gelabert, wanted to “publicly thank” the island’s institution for bringing back the Pujada a Lluc de la Part Forana with the same format that has made it so popular “because they understood that we could not adapt to the demands made by Emergencies and we are very grateful for the technical solution that has been found between Emergencies, the Consell de Mallorca and our association”.

This event has the support of the Consell de Mallorca, which will make a contribution of 55,745 euros. To conclude, President Galmés encouraged all Mallorcans to take part in this tradition “as it is an opportunity to enjoy our nature, sport, culture and the company of the other participants”.
