    Great trip at a reasonable price that lets you see panoramic views of Mallorca's amazing costline.
    Great to show the children what the island looks like and experience the views from up high in the mountains.

    We booked this trip via Jet2 excursions and were picked up from our hotel in an open top bus. The bus winds through Pollenca town and up the steep road into the mountains. This takes approx half an hour to get to the top and there is a guide explaining things to you.

    You then have time to experience the amazing views and walk along the path to Cap de Formentor as you overlook the sea. Perfect place to get a selfie and admire the view.

    You then re-join the bus as you go down the mountain to a small beach where we swam and had some time to browse the gift shops and get a drink.

    The trip ends with a lovely boat trip back round the bay into Pollenca.

    The great thing about this trip is that you are back in time for a late lunch so it does not take up your entire day. It is also great value.

    Great place for a stroll, safe and friendly, tree lined Passeig, good shops and cafes. Lovely Christmas decorations, still out in January for feasts of Three Kings and San Sebastian.

    This is free to visit and well worth it. The building exudes history and is in a central location, easy to find.

    Arenal is the far eastern part of the Palma beach which starts close to the Cathedral in the island's capital.
    Arenal is a busy resort, very frequented with tourists, mostly German.
    The beach itself is very nice, however the back streets are a disaster - very narrow, impossible to park, nothing to see if walking and filled with people mostly drunk.

    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.

    A rare find today - a road less travelled and all the better for it.
    Gorgeous little place that could appear slightly faded in some eyes but really it’s more lived in and real. Greeted by a picturesque little blue chaired cafe that spills over 3 levels and which serves a great macchiato and ensaimada. Even in cloudier conditions today this place shine bright. Loads of photo ops for those who like me love a colourful pic or two and for the Cliff ramblers it’s rocky heaven…

    Great place to base yourself for touring this corner of Mallorca and beats getting lost in the side street parking hell of Santanyí…thanks to no easy ways in to this town centre we found this place instead …and kind of really glad we did!

    We visited Mallorca in December, best period of the year to see the island without tourists, with perfect weather, around 20C.
    On our way to Cap Formentor, there is this viewpoint, or photo point they call it. Absolutely amazing with the tall cliffs underneath you, Cap Formaentor in the background, seagulls as small as ants at sea level.
    Absolutely worth visiting!

    The attractive mountain village of Valldemossa is dominated by the big Cartoixa, which is the Catalan name for a charterhouse. On some signs one can also read the Spanish name for it: Cartuja. In Italian it would be 'Certosa' (see the famous Certosa di Pavia), in German 'Kartäuse'. All these names (also the misleading English 'charterhouse', which has nothing to do with a 'charter') are derived from the French 'Chartreuse', from the famous monastery (now 'Grande Chartreuse', north of Grenoble), where this order of shared silence and solitude had been founded in the 11th century.

    When coming from Valldemossa centre one will first arrive at the Plaça de la Cartoixa with plane trees. Here is the entrance to the former monastery, where most people will mainly go to see the Chopin Museum in cell No 4. After the secularisation in 1835, when all monastic land was confiscated by the state and sold to private individuals, some of the cells were rented out to visitors.

    The Carthusian monks lead a life in silence, but their cells, consisting generally of three rooms and a garden, were quite comfortable. Here they also had a great view out into the Tramuntana countryside, which one can see, when looking at cell No 4, where Frederic Chopin and George Sand (a female French writer) spent together a rather miserable time in the unusually cold and rainy winter 1838-39.

    The Cartoixa had originally been a royal palace for the kings of Mallorca, built in 1309. When Mallorca became a part of the kingdom of Aragon its functions changed and so 90 years after its construction it was given to the Carthusians, who had the place extensively rebuilt at the beginning of the 18th century.

    Placa Mayor is the main central square in every Spanish town, as well in overseas ex colonies where it's mostly called Plaza de Armas.
    Usually, it's a big rectangular square with residences and offices on upper floors, while on the ground floor are bars, restaurants and markets from time to time.
    That's just the case here, in Palma, however don't expect much. The square is pretty small and I'd rather consider it a walk through attraction than spending some time here.

    Amazing views of the sea, the cape of Formentor peninsula, and the bay of Pollenca. Well worth the short drive from Pollenca. Best enjoyed perhaps before sunset, when temperature is cooler and the light is most golden.

    It's the view that counts. An old house still privately owned but you are allowed in to enjoy the view and memorabilia of a globetrotting archduke evicted from Italy. by Garibaldi

    We visited Pollenca on 24 December, the whole town was preparing for Christmas carols - chairs, desks were at the square, with many happy and smiling people - wonderful experience.
    We visited the church, once belonging to the Templars, we were touched by ancient history.
    Walk on the Calvary Church, but be prepared, it is not an easy walk, but 200% worth the experience

    Porta del Moll is an icon of Aldudia.
    It is a must to visit. It is easy to get here by bus or by car.

    The fortified hill above Artà centre looks impressive from all the angles. To get there by walking one first passes the church of the Transfiguració del Señor and then goes up the steps to a big terrace with the church of Sant Salvador. The whole top of the hill is surrounded with battlement walls and several towers, the biggest being the one of St.Michael. It all looks a bit fake and in fact it is a new construction from the 1960's which probably doesn't have much to do with the Almudaina, the original fort from Moorish times.

    After the king of Aragon, Jaume I el Conqueridor, had taken the island of Mallorca in the years 1229-1231, the fort of Artà was neglected and its mosque turned into a church, which was completely rebuilt in 1832 in a mixed baroque and renaissance style. Nothing overwhelming. Of interest are the paintings on the walls with religious themes, but also about local history. Attached to it is a small museum with religious objects.

    There are a couple of cisterns on top and also a -bar-restaurant with outdoor seating. The main reason for me and probably for many visitors to come up here are the great views over Artà, but also to the surrounding countryside like the Serra de Llevant mountains.
