Begin the itinerary in Algaida, in the former parish church of Castellitx, also known as Mare de Déu de la Pau, situated between Algaida and the Puig de Randa. Built in the primitive gothic style, it has one nave with three sections and a ceiling with diaphragm arches supporting the beams. According to legend, the image of the Virgin, a wooden sculpture of 1430, was found very near to the current chapel.
Continue up to the top of the Hill of Randa, turning to the Shrine of Gracia. Originally this shrine consisted of a cave known as Aresta, where in the 15th century the Franciscan monks went to fulfil vows of poverty and austerity. The first chapel became a centre of pilgrimage to Our Lady of Gracia. Of note in the interior of the chapel are the tiles of Saint Anne, the first chapel on the left of the 18th century and the image of the Virgin Mary.
Along the same route leading up to the Shrine of Cura is the chapel of Sant Honorat. The Majorcan philosopher and mystic Ramon Llull was the first to retire here. In the mid-19th century, others also chose Randa to commence a religious life, having requested permission to erect the chapel. It currently belongs to the order to the Missionaries of the Sagrados Corazones and has hostel service.
On the peak of the Hill of Randa is the Shrine of Nostra Senyora de Cura, built in the 15th century. The first College of Latin Grammar was housed here until 1826. The original chapel, dating back to the 15th century, was reformed and converted into a church in the 17th century. It also has a hostel service. It is a privileged lookout point offering breathtaking panoramic views of the island.

Ramon Llull retired to live in one of the nearby caves and legend tells that this is where his mission was revealed to him: to write a book to argue against all the false beliefs of the infidels.
