Whilst rated as "facile" ( easy) in terms of a mountain trek, it does take some effort to reach the top as other reviewers have noted. We bribed our 15 and 12 year old to do an early(ish) morning hike up with the promise of drinks and pastries at the top - but arrived at 10.15 to find that they... More

This is not for the unfit! The climb is steep and the last third on slippery cobbles. Wear trainers if possible. I wore sandals and regretted it! the views are amazing but go early or late and take water as you will be a sweaty mess by the time you reach the top and the pretty little sanctuary. It took... More

After looking at the Puig de Marie from the other side of Pollensa at the top of the Calvary steps my daughter and I decided it would be a challenge to climb to the top...encouraged by Josep our lovely hotel manager who assured us we could do it we set off one sunny, hot Saturday morning...as previous reviews you really...

Only 10mins by local bus to this charming old town founded by the Romans with it's narrow streets, characterful houses, restaurants and cafe's. The church of Nostra Senyora dels Angels boasts a beautiful high rosette window at the head of the nave. There is a great view from the El Calvari chapel after ascending the 365 steps to the hilltop... More

The walk up to the Puig de Maria takes about 45 minutes, probably longer if you keep stopping to take photos of the views like we did! As others have said - about 80% tarmac road, which then gives way to cobbles, so we would recommend good footwear (not flipflops), as they can be slippery in places, and even more... More

The walk takes about 45 minutes from town. A steady climb on a tarmac road for 80% of the walk. The final bit is on well worn cobblestones and in places care is needed; because of this good footware is recommended. Lovely views at the top. Go into the small shop because this provides access to a small museum, not... More

The journey up the the church is 365 steps, but is worth it. It is said every step you take you will lose your sins from each day of the year. Walking up here can be difficult in the heat, but there are walls and shops to rest at on the way up. When you reach the top the views... More

It's good to know that it's actually known as "Puig de Maria" in Pollença, it is well signposted around the town on how to get there and there's a tiny (4 or 5 spaces) "car park" at the bottom of the hill on the main Ma-2200 road into Pollença if you aren't staying in the area. We climbed up early... More

Walking up was exactly as other reviewers have said, around 45 minutes. However...beware the 'cobbled' last part of the trek, it is slippery and very uneven and harder coming down than going up. Even in sensible shoes, it was scary. The views were very good, but if I am honest, I found the church a little disappointing, dark, dilapidated and... More

For a quick calorie burn, run up the puig, a bit of a slog but rewarded with beautiful views at the top!
