Mancor: paths of Santa Llúcia and Biniarroi
If you walk along Carrer de Sa Costa, you come to a cobbled stretch of paving that linked Santa Llúcia Chapel to the village. Standing on a hillock with panoramic views of the surrounding area, the chapel is typical of churches built after the Christian conquest, with the arrival of new settlers to the island. It has a gabled roof and diaphragm arches. Presiding over the chapel is a statue of Saint Lucy. Prior to the 12th century, it was used as a place of worship by the inhabitants of Biniarroi and Mancor. Close by is a lodging house, whose building was extended.
The road down links up with the new road to Biniarroi, which still features sections of its cobbled predecessor. Biniarroi is a hamlet founded after the island’s Christian conquest on the site of an old Islamic farmstead. In 1721, there was a big landslide that affected nearby olive groves and the hamlet’s houses. In the 20th century, Biniarroi was abandoned and now it is in the process of being restored. It still features buildings with a very rustic charm.
