    Worth the climb
    We read about the history of the steps and the good Friday celebrations that the locals have before we went. Steps are not too steep, good viewpoint at the top. Little church at the top beautiful inside. Worth the climb. If you go on a Sunday, there is a market .

    Well worth the visit.
    Spent the day looking around the beautiful Pollensa old town. After a delicious lunch in one of the restaurants situated in the main square, we decided to walk up the famous steps. Walking the steps was definitely harder than it looked however, my two young sons (7 & 10) had no issues getting up there quickly! The views were amazing and the walk down was lovely. Had a really enjoyable day walking around the town, looking at the beautiful buildings and having a tasty lunch. Well worth the visit!

    Tiring but love it!!
    Beautiful View! It took me about 7 minutes to walk up these steps, in 24°c heat. It might be a bit of a walk but the view is soo worth it! I come to Majorca/Mallorca every year and we always go up the steps. There is a small cafe at the top where you can buy beers, water, soft drinks, ice-cream and wee souvenirs of the chapel at the top. The chapel is lovely me and my family always light a couple candles and we feel it makes our holiday a little brighter!

    Nice activity but also look around Pollenca old town too
    Spotlessly clean and well kept, lovely find in the pretty old town of Pollença. Good views of the bay from the viewing point off to the right. My legs felt it the next morning but good exercise!

    Picturesque!
    We walked up theses 365 Calvari steps since everyone told us that it is a must if you go to Pollenca. The steps were built in late 19th , early 20th century. At the beginning of going up, the steps are not steep. As you climb, you find many little shops to check out as well. At the very top, you visit the Celvario Chapel . The views from the very top is quite picturesque…At the bottom of these steps , you find a square with bars and restaurants which you enjoy afterwards.

    Lovely amble
    We didn't realise there were 365 steps until we reached the top, which was relatively easy with a few well-deserved pauses. In any case, some of the houses around are a treat to watch. The chapel at the top is nothing special. There's a nice viewpoint around, with place for 6-8 cars to park. While returning, suggest you take the regular winding road from the viewpoint area upto the halfway mark - it's easier on the knees too.

An activity most visitors to Pollenca will not miss is to walk up the 365 steps of the Calvary hill. It is a straight line with low, wide steps, so the going is not too strenuous for the reasonably fit. On both sides of the 'Carrer del Calvari' cypress trees have been planted. The steps have been made at different stages from the late 19th till the early 20th centuries.

At the top of the hill one will find the open 'Esglesia del Calvari' with a classical facade. The church dates from the late 18th century, but its interior has been remodeled in a modern way in 1952. The high altar of stone has at its front a low relief made from olive wood. Next to the church is a café and a terrace, which offers great views to the surrounding countryside. Very special it is to look over the tiled roofs of compact old Pollenca.

There is the possibility not to go down the same steps, but to chose another way, through small alleys in direction of the 'Pont Romá', an attractive old stone bridge in the north of the town. From there it is another 15 minutes to go back to the centre of Pollenca.

Just an amazing place to visit, we drove straight to the top, there is a limited parking space. Then the kids went down all the 365 steps and climb up back. It's a tiny beautiful church, a small cafe there. If you ever visit there say a hi to the gentleman plays guitar near the entrance. Lovely music with smile

It doesn’t take long, but is well worth the trip to the top. Fantastic views as you go, plus a cheeky little place to get ice cream as a reward for your efforts.
Shout out an old lady who was counting the steps as she went so we knew as we passed her.
Be sure to head to the right when you get to the top for spectacular views over Pollenća and the surrounding countryside.

You start from the central street and continue to the stairs, with side streets and houses and some trees. Relatively easy to climb if no hurry. A man with guitar sat near the church on top. There is also a small café. You can actually just drive by car to the top via a small road if physical condition does not allow the climb.

Very beautiful steps and views at the top. If staying in port pollenca can easily get a bus here and walk it in 10 minutes. Pollenca old town is really nice with cafes, bars and restaurants as well as cool markets and shops.

365 steps (although we never counted!) with a little chapel at the top. Admire the smart houses as you climb, and the view from the top. Go early/late in peak season, take water, wear a hat!

Take your time, enjoy the weather, the view, and prepare for the climb. On the top we met a guitarist, smiling, saying Hola to every single person. Sit down in the lovely chapel, take a coffee, buy an ice-cream from the bar next to the chapel - very friendly and kind owner, and walk to side of the hill - I guarantee you the nicest view you have ever seen.

When stopping off at Pollenca before going to the port we had to do this activity and can confirm it is worth it. The steps are quite a climb and exercise especially when its hot but the view at the top makes it all worth while. You feel accomplished looking back down the steps to the town and then when you walk round to the viewing platform you can take in the scenic views of the mountains. There is also the small monastery and a cafe for refreshments once you reach the top.

The island of Majorca is full of fantastic viewpoints. Another one is this one, starting from the center of a small town Pollenca.
Allegedly there're 365 steps but we really did not count, and the climb is not difficult. Once up, by a small Chapel you have great views of the town beneath and the surroundings.
