“great views from the top”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

it is worth the climb up the steps just for the view a great time to visit is semana santa (easter) on good friday night outside the chapel at the top there is a large cross erected where the cruxifiction is re-enacted then a torch lit journey all down the 365 steps takes place to the church at the top of plaza major where a service takes place when we visited there were hundreds of people there a great thing was at the bottom of the calvario steps two large screens were erected so we had a great view what was going on at the top of the steps it was well worth the visit

“Don't miss it, its lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

I have visited he area many times before but never stopped off in Pollensa itself - what a shame. The town is fabulous, all cobbled streets, old squares, interesting sights and great shops and restaurants. And you will see the Calvario, a 365 step mount right in the town centre - its a must. The climb is not exactly tough, but its not easy either and you may need to take a breather en route. The view from the top is wonderful. Take the climb in the morning or evening and reward yourself afterwards with a cooling drink in the town after you descend.

“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

Each time we come to the area we always have to walk to the top at least once - great views. Lovely houses and flowers on the way up. We were disappointed not to see the "Guitar man" this year - he has been there every time we have walked the steps.

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

If you are in the area don't miss a visit to the old town of Pollenca. Sunday is market day and the narrow streets and large squares are bustling with visitors. The walk up the 365? Cavario steps is lovely. Quaint houses, picturesque flowers and vegetation, great views and a man playing a guitar near the top (The same tune for years). Visit the little church at the summit and cool down in it's quiet interior. Views from the top are spectacular and you would regret not making the effort.

“Great views, not the easiest place to find though!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We hired some and cycles form the port to the old town. As a result, we went up to the monastery via the road rather than the steps. It wasn't the easiest place to find but that might.have been because of the route we took! They were doing some building works at the time so a little noisy/dusty but that's short term. Lovely views, nice little cafe at top. Would have been good to go into monastery but was closed at time. will walk the steps next time!
