Well worth the climb the views at the top are stunning and there is a little cafe where you can cool down with a coffee or drink, a lovely little chapel with interesting paintings,

Moved slowly up the steps stoppng at any establishment that served refreshments.

Nice houses and shops on the way up (lower end in the main)

Steps very uneven, could prove difficult if you're a little unstable.

Thighs ache by the time you get to the top, nice coming down!

The steps leading to the chapel seem like they never end. The houses on the sides are just so neat and diverse. Pollenca is a beautiful city and is good to visit if you're in Majorca and the beach water isn't exactly swimming temperature. There's a small cafe up at the top and lots of cats (instant entertainment for kids!)

The set of 365 steps(likely not too steep) leading to a chapel on the hill and amazing views.Definitely worth a climb! Pollensa town itself is well worth visiting.Beautiful,historical town with quite a few superb restaurants.Try tapas at La Posada d'Ariant :) fried baby squid!!!yum yum

Narrow streets in Polenca lead to the 365 steps going straight up to a lovely little church at the top. Wonderful views over the bays of Polenca and Alcudia and the countryside laid out below. We walked up early one morning in absolute solitude, blissful. Polenca town is lovely to wander around, to stop awhile and to have a drink and some tapas. The road winds down from the Calvario back to the town with twelve large crosses representing the twelve stations of the cross. A special place.
