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

Go to Mallorca and rent a car, visiting all the lovely towns around and its beaches full of beauty and lovely places for food around. Puig the Pollenca is a lovely area with history that deserves a visit enjoying the place, its restaurants and nice people. Go on winter time !

As other reviewers have stated, this is a climb and not really a walk. I am not by any means fit and I did it, but if you have actual mobility restrictions I would not recommend it. We took about an hour to the top from the big road at the bottom. The sign says 40 minutes on foot, and... More

OK, it's a big hill with a lovely church/monastery at the top. It'll take you about an hour to get up it (bring plenty of water) but the views from the summit are amazing. Once done, you can look at it for the rest of your holiday and think smug thoughts about yourself!

In hindsight, climbing up Puig de Pollenca when 5 months pregnant, and with a 3 year old in tow wasn't the best idea in the world, but we managed it. Neither my husband and I are hikers so we took it slowly, so the 45 min climb was optimistic for us and that was even with our parking at about... More

A great place to visit and walk up to the little church at the top of the 365 Calvari steps. Sit inside and contemplate after lighting a candle. The views at the top are lovely and you can see the old roman bridge at the top on the right and if you still have the wind you can walk down... More

Always a regular in our annual visit to Pollensa is this steep climb up the Puig. It takes around 40 minutes to do the walk in the spring but I suspect it may take longer in the heat of the summer. The views at the top and all the way up are fabulous and the advantage of a drink and... More
