“worth the effort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Its a tough climb if you are over 40, but its real Mallorca and the views are stunning. The chapel at the top is lovely in its simplicity too.

“What views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Although 365 steps just take your time and look in the shops on the way up. It,s worth the effort for the views

“Unique Steps”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Wonderful views and peace and tranquility. It is more than 365 steps and although shallow still manageable with a little cafe and church at the top. Its possible to drive up as well to see the views over Pollenca town and surroundings

“Climb the Steps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Not to demanding and a must when visiting the old town of Pollensa. Lovely views across the bay and to Puig Maria( a bit more demanding but worth the climb)
