The 12th century Romanesque chapel is the oldest building in the whole complex. It is a rural chapel without ornamentation, with only one nave with two semicircular lateral apses, forming a clover with the central one. The building is mentioned for the first time in a donation by Guillem de Montcada and his wife Guillermina at the monastery of Sant Cugat in From until the 18th century Sant Cugat was the one in charge of maintaining the building. In the 15th century, it had two altars dedicated to Sant Mateu and Santa Margarida. Until the end of the eighteenth century, it seems that in this church there was an assembly.

The Sanctuary of Sant Salvador , founded in the fourteenth century, is one of the greatest pilgrimage sites of the island. The sanctuary is distant 6. A small road 5 km is on the right, and tight switchbacks up to the sanctuary and the road offers many points of view, past a small chapel in front of a large stone cross, the Creu del Picot , then before the monument to Christ the King. This road in good condition, was built in and is used by many cyclists as a training course. In clear weather, the terraces of the sanctuary, and those of the monument to Christ the King and the Creu del Picot , offer magnificent views of almost the entire island of Majorca. In addition to being a place of pilgrimage, the shrine had different secondary uses over the centuries: in the sixteenth century, there was a "grammar school", in the seventeenth century, the building served as a watchtower to guard against attacks by Barbary pirates. The church and the buildings for pilgrims were rebuilt in the course of the eighteenth century.
