We walked up with an 18m old in a sling. Wonderfully shaded for the most part and provided a nice balance between exercise and a relaxing walk while being rewarded with a real treat at the top in the form of amazing views over Pollenca. We reached the top around 10am and not busy. Start is easy to find being... More

This was my third visit to pollensa and I have never got around to making this trip so this time I left my family by the pool and set off solo. I left the car at the bottom of the hill. It's a steep walk and a little challenging on the large cobbles near the top. wear suitable footwear, trainers... More

This was an interesting visit. We drove half way up then parked and walked the rest of the way as roads are steep and hairpin bends required three-point turns to navigate them! The walk from halfway up with four children aged 5-10 took about an hour. It was worth it as this place is amazing. It has an interesting history... More

Visited on a cloudy my day. My kids enjoyed climbing to the top and we enjoyed the views with a coffee and ice-cream. The walk up took us about 40 minutes. There is a cafe that serves refreshments in the monastery.

Long climb recommend walk early morning as later in day heat would make climb difficult(and wear good footwear)once at the top the view makes the climb well worth the effort. Sit and enjoy the view whilst enjoying a light lunch of bread and olives and freshly squeezed orange juice

This is a fantastic walk and well worth the effort for the views and to visit the 'refuge' at the top. I have done the walk 10+ times and the only thing I would recommend is that you wear some sturdier shoes with some tread. The path, particularly at the top, is stony and really demands some running shoes or... More

At my age an hour's uphill walk is too much so 20 minutes for last steps is enough especially on so well polished and slippery steps ( no flip flops here ). But enough for the view all round and to marvel at the church and the monks who have made their life and worship up here. So take care,... More

The walk up wasn't too challenging. We set off at around 7pm to avoid the heat. The path snakes up through natural forest smelling of pine trees. The last 10 minutes the road stops and a wonderful rustic path starts up through the cliffs. The monestry at the top is cool and quiet with amazing views We went with our... More

This is quite a strenuous uphill walk, but OK if you're reasonably fit. It takes about 35-45 minutes to get to the top. The start is road but about two-thirds up it becomes stone cobbles, initially quite flat but later quite rough so you need to watch your step. There are spectacular views during the walk as well as at... More

First of all, some of the travelers have written a comment on the church inside the town of Pollença, which is indeed some 300 steps behind the main square of Pollença, but the Puig de Maria that is on the address mentioned here, is on the other side of the main road, up in the mountains, some 300 meters high....
