It seems that the importance of Cura (the upper part of the Randa mountain) began in the XIII century, after James 1st's conquest. The name of this Majorcan place calls to mind aspects different in themselves, but which in its case are strongly linked:

LLOC DE LES ERMITES (Place of the Hermitages). In the XIV and XV centuries, hermit life was in vogue in all of Europe, Majorca took part in this current or ideal of religious life In the eyes of the Christians of the those days, the mountain of Randa appeared as the ideal place That is why the three sanctuaries on the mountain today owe their origin to three erstwhile hermits.

'Vida Coetŕnea' tells us that Ramon Llull withdrew to a mountain about tens years after this conversion and after being there for eight days had the famous 'illumination'. After wilting his book in the La Real Abbey, he returned to the mountain and had a hermitage built where he stayed for four months.

Successive events resulted in the Cura mountain being the mountain where Ramon Llull withdrew.
