Beautiful and peaceful place. Well worth a visit... In our experience we find that small children and teenagers are not really interested!! B

We had a wonderful walk up here and were rewarded with stunning views. Set off very early though, we were at the top by 8.30 for breakfast. It would be very hot in the heat of the day and best avoided.

The walk to the top takes around 45 mins and you need to wear sensible footwear as the cobbles at the top can be hard going. Go early morning and watch the sun gradually light up the valley below. The old church is very tranquil and calming and there are plenty of places to sit down outside. There is a... More

Walked up to Puig de Maria today at midday in 33 degrees - VERY hot. Had booked in for a meal for seven at the cafe at the top the evening before. The walk was awesome. Very steep at times - wear sensible shoes, plenty of cream and a hat and take water! The cobbles at the top were the... More

I went to visit this fabulous Church with my husband and son. It was a very hot day and we walked up 2.7 km at 5 pm ... not clever, but it was the only chance we had to go up there. It was well worth it! Beautiful scenery and lovely Church. Breathtaking, really. Another highlight is their very simple... More

The chapel at the top of the long set of steps is simple and failry recent but it entices you to climb up the 360+ steps! The view is lovely and on the day of our climb in 30+ degrees the guitar playing at the top gave a lovely Spanish atmosphere. If you are visiting in the summer, best to... More

As you are reading a review of this attraction there are a couple of things that need clarification. Firstly a lot of reviewers have mistakenly posted reviews on here relating to 'The 365 Calvari steps'. see my separate review of that attraction. The Puig de Pollenca is a much more strenuous challenge and is unsuitable for anyone who is not... More

I'm used the time said on the signs can be halved most of the time for fit people. Not when climbing Puig Maria in Pollenca! It was hot and I said many times this is totally not worth it, especially when the dusty rocks got slippery higher up. But on the top I had to admit I was wrong, the... More

Most people have covered the points already. It is a good steep walk. Tarmac and gravel path for around 75% of the hike, with the rest set stones (stones cemented into the path). These are well walked so a very polished and can be slippery. I went in my walking sandals which I basically live in, but even these were... More
