Pollenca is a real, traditional Mallorcan town
Pollenca can be found at the foot of the Sierra Tramuntana Mountain, 12 kilometers to the north of Alcúdia. Pollenca is a real, traditional Mallorcan town, which has kept its traditions and charm. The main attraction of the place is the small chapel in the centre of the old town, and the 14th century monastery above the city, the Puig de Pollenca. The monastery boasts an incredible view, and on the way here, you can marvel at the natural beauty of the mountain. After your hike you can rest in of the atmospheric coffee shops next to the chapel in the centre of town. Taste some tapas and marvel at the traditional Mallorcan town!
Amongst the many attractions are the Nostra Senyora dels Angels church, the Convent de Santo Domingo monastery and the Església de Nostra Senyora del Roser church. Here too, as in most Spanish cities, the Plaza Mayor counts as the city centre – it’s worth visiting the city on Sunday, because there is a market in the centre on this day. If you’re tired of wandering around the beaches, then you should walk up the Calvary Hill on the famous 365 steps. It’s likely you’ll be tired by the time you reach the top, but the fantastic panorama is worth the effort. Port de Pollença can be a good option for families looking for relaxation and peace. The water level of the sea is very low in some places, so it is ideal for a holiday with small children.
Compared to the other resorts on the island, there are less big hotels here, there are more small hotels and apartments where you can stay. Port de Pollença isn’t a perfect option only for families, but also for lovers of water sports, because there are countless options for surfing, water skiing, or diving. Mallorca attracts thousands of tourists each year with its beautiful coast, great location and attractions. It’s worth renting a car to explore the island.
