“Climb the Steps”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Not to demanding and a must when visiting the old town of Pollensa. Lovely views across the bay and to Puig Maria( a bit more demanding but worth the climb)

“Bit of a climb”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

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,

“Feeling energetic - try these steps”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

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!

“Something different and interesting”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

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!)

“A pleasant afteroon out”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

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
