WoW 👍... A good, steady, steep climb of a walk but worth it for the views at the top. A quite peaceful place to visit. Recommend sturdy shoe/trainer.

set at the top of a steep climb of stone steps up but worth the climb. At the top your reward is fantastic views across the valleys and hills beyond and the chance to visit the little chapel

Climb every mountain they said! Well, this isn’t a real mountain, but Puig de Maria is a high, tough climb to the top, via winding steep roads and cobbles, through trees and passing goats, other walkers and seeing the most beautiful views along the way....More

Easy to get to the starting point of this walk - it is around 10 mins walk from Pollensa bus station. Take care when crossing the main road towards the mountain. Try to go when the surface is dry as it can be slippy on...More

It's a steep climb, whether from the town or from the top of the road, leaving a 15-20 minute hike up fairly rough cobbled steps, but well worth it when you reach the top. It's well kempt and atmospheric. You really feel you deserve your...More

We’ve climbed to the top of the Puig at least once on each occasion we’ve visited Pollença. It’s not for the faint hearted especially if you are not the fittest as it’s a tough old climb especially if you go in the summer months and...More

We took the opportunity to break up our relaxing holiday centred around the pool to hike to the monastery one morning. Its an excellent trip that's well worth the effort, with amazing views of old town Pollenca and across to the coast. If you take...More

It does have overnight accommodation so would have thought it would be open for residents, but best to phone them. I was there between 2 - 3pm and they were taking calls for bookings.

I haven’t been in October but since most bars and restaurants stay open in Pollença and the Port till the end of October I’d imagine it will be open. It’s definitely a more comfortable time weather wise to climb. Enjoy!
