If you're on holiday and want to get away from the beaches and sample some of Spain, Pollenca is well worth the visit. Its easily accessible on public transport from Alcudia but check the timetable. If you miss the bus, its not too expensive by taxi. If you're feeling energetic, try the walk up to El Calvario, the 365 steps... More

An ancient monastery on top of a massive mountain just next to Pollensa town. Top views to the bay and to the mountains to the north and west.

Breathtaking views, amazing location and very interesting historical landmark. A must see! The display of real owls is amazing but I feel sorry for the creatures to be sat in that small room and be intimidated by tourists. Few streets down a market where you can buy the best home made wine, cheeses that you never knew existed and clothes... More

Wandered up from the town where we were staying in about 40mins, need to wear trainers or walking boots, more difficult for walking over stones/cobbles near the top but well worth the effort. We saw all sorts of groups at the top of all ages including kids who were enjoying seeing the goats at close quarters.There is a small cafe... More

The trek up to Puig de Pollenca isnt to bad, it took us about 30 mins,and the views across the bays are well worth the effort,and there is a small cafe there for some much needed refreshment before the walk back down

It's worth the little trek up the hill. It looks a bit intimidating when you are standing in the town but it took me (I am overweight and unfit) 45 minutes to get to the top with just a quick water drinking stop (although as some goats seemed to be following me up the hill, I did get a wiggle...

Check that the cafe is open before going Walk from road took me 26 mins, a steady determined plod on a warm autumn day. Surprisingly busy but enjoyable all the same. Interesting buildings and good views.

With a strong pair of legs you can be at the top of Maria Mountain in less than an hour - and it is worth the effort. The views are amazing, and the actual buildings are of huge historical interest. Don't be put off by the steepness of the road up, it doesn't last long - and don't bother driving... More

Climb took about 30 minutes at a fairly relaxed pace, not difficult at any stage although the rough stones near the top need care in places, and in the morning most of the climb up was in the shade. But worth every minute, stunning views out over the island at the top and a nice descent back to the town... More

Well worth the walk up for the fantastic views.trainers are a must..just for the end bit as the road stops and you then have a very cobbled pathway. The little cafe inside is just lovely.i would certainly like to stay there for a night.
