Have made this walk many times before and it never fails to impress. Car park just of the main road through Pollenca (behind Renault garage) and it then just a short triop across the road to start the climb. Looks daunting but you will be there in arounf 45 mins. Best to wear some proper shoes, flip flops will present... More

This is the besti view of Pollença, also with Talaia of Albercuix, in Formentor. Good 45 min walk to the top, including a panel with some explanations about the site

Over six years of visiting Mallorca and standing with camera in hand on the odd hill or two the view out over the Bay of Pollenca is just the best. Back to the start. The walk looks innocuous from the main road, but is pretty vertical through a series of switch back turns on a well made road. Peaking out... More

We walked from Pollenca main street having used the local bus from PP(E1.5)It's just over 1000 feet so don't attempt this(on a hot day) unless you are fairly fit and take some water. The views are great and with the 42 hairpin turns you get to see in all directions. The last 200 feet are on cobbled and at times... More

Yes this is different to the 365 steps which is in the town of Pollensa. If you like a very steep climb up a mountain, this is for you. Parking is either right at the bottom of the main road or you can drive half way up and park but wouldn't recommend driving any further as the road is very... More

There seems to be some confusion on the trip advisor site of what this is. This is the big hill /small mountain you can walk up to the old monastery/convent on the top. It is not the 365 steps which is called Calvari and is based in the North West of the town. This is on the opposite side of... More

Do go early in the day before the sun gets too hot. fantastic views. Look out for the guitar player - he plays the theme from 'The God Father' - worth a Euro just to listen to him

Steep climb up. If you're adventurous you can run or cycle up very nearly to the top as it gets uneven. So take care. Motorcyclists can go part way up but no parking slots as such. When you reach the top the views are awesome!
