A visit to Pollensa means you can enjoy all the wonders of Mallorca. Beaches with crystal clear water, the picturesque historic centre plus impressive sheer cliffs, hiking trails and emblematic places such as the Calvario.
You can´t help but be impressed by the many attractive aspects of Pollensa and last August it was named as one of the prettiest towns in Spain. In order to receive this award from the Association for the Prettiest Towns in Spain, Pollensa had to be successful in 40 aspects which focused on subjects such as the uniformity of its buildings, cleanliness, green areas or preservation of the town´s heritage, for example.

Pollensa invites you to wander down its narrow cobbled streets, to see a piece of the history of Mallorca and to contemplate the Mediterranean Sea on the horizon. From the characteristics that make Pollensa one of the prettiest towns in Spain, we could highlight the following:
For visitors to Pollensa, the Calvario shrine is a must on the list of places to see in the town. To reach the top there are 365 steps representing the days in a year and they lead to the shrine from where there is spectacular panoramic view over the town.
The organization of cultural events here in recent years played an important part in the naming of Pollensa as one of the prettiest towns in Spain.
The Convent of Sant Domingo which dates from the 16th and 17th centuries is the site for numerous cultural activities and is where the International Art Exhibition and the Music Festival are held and where the Pollensa Museum is located. The convent comprises a church with ten small chapels and impressive Baroque cloisters perfect for art, history and music events.
Pollensa is also perfect for lovers of nature in its purest state to visit places such as the Puig de Maria where an approximately 3km walk, suitable for the whole family, takes you through glorious oak forests up to a small chapel at the top of the mountain. It dates from the 14th century and offers stunning views.
The sheer cliff faces of the Cape of Formentor and the viewing points overlooking the sea are one of nature´s true jewels. A must for visitors to the area is a stroll round the lighthouse which has been functioning since the 19th century at an altitude of 200 metres. There are breathtaking views which have been an inspiration for artists such as Miquel Costa I Llobera, the poet.
