We were at the main road at 0715 and had reached the top by 0800 with a fairly leisurely amble up the road. It becomes cobbled near the top which will be very slippy when wet. Great views all over from the top; you can explore the old Santuari/Monastery; lots of (very well groomed) feral cats; wild goats; and a... More

Climbing the 365 stairs up to Puig de Pollenca is nice, the view is great over the village and the surroundings. Been there done that.

The Puig De Maria Monastery can be seen for miles around. It is about 1200 feet above sea level. There is a road which goes part of the way up but there is little to no parking and the road is narrow and twists and turns. My wife and i (both mid 60s) walked up from the car park in... More

The maps say 40 minutes...that's each way though so plan for a two hour round trip. It's well marked and really is a beautiful walk with plenty of shade if you start by 9.00am (recommended) and stunning views in all directions as you climb. It's not for everyone but it's well worth it if you are up for a steady... More

A nice hike up the hill, wear reasonable footwear and maybe not in the heat of the day. Most of the walk is road but turns to cobbles for the last third.

roughly 45m walk mainly on steep winding tree covered road, with 10mins of cobbled path at the end, fantastic views on the way up and at the top, greeted by a number of friendly wild goats, lovely church and buildings, non commercial café at the top

This is a steep walk in anybodies book but the views at the top are stunning in all directions. The last 500 meters is a cobbled path and can be slippery. There is a good cafe at the top, which we understand also has accomodation

Well worth the walk up, my partner and I got up and down in 1 hour, so definitely do not need to put aside much time to do it, but it well worth doing for the unrivalled views.

There is some confusion between the Puig de Pollença (which is signposted "Puig de Maria" on the main road) and the El Calvario steps in the town of Pollença itself. The Puig de Pollença is the sturdier walk up the hill that lies just outside the town. It took me and my six-year-old about 45 minutes to walk up. We... More

This was a lovely walk up the 350 steps to the church at the top. There were a few small, local shops up the left and right side fairly near bottom of the steps. Lots of local produce from balsamic vinegars, honey to jewelry sold in the shops. However, it's not the shops that is the best bit, it's the... More
