The Museum at Lluc Sanctuary in Escorca has been renovated and modernised. The first part of the project ended yesterday, with the official opening to the public of the first two rooms to be refurbished, after being closed for work since May. One part holds a collection of archaeological pieces and one half shows jewellery donated to the Mother of God throughout the history of the sanctuary. The prior of the monastery, Jaume Reynés, made a brief speech at the opening and the director of the Museum, Elvira González, took visitors on a guided tour. The archaeological exhibits come from the prehistoric sites of Son Maimó and Sa Cometa des Morts. There are also unique pieces from the Punic period. It is Open Doors day at the museum and the monastery today, and also at the adjacent botanical garden. The occasion is the feast of the Mare de Deu de Lluc (the Mother of God of Lluc). Many people will have walked to Lluc from Inca and neighbouring towns and villages and are expected to arrive there at about 7 to 8am today. At 9am, Bishop Teodor Ubeda will say mass during which the Lluc boys' choir will sing.
