At the northern end of the island of Mallorca lies Pollença, a town with a Mediterranean flavour full of charm, historical monuments and an enviable environment.
The Plaza Mayor de Pollença is a meeting place with an air of yesteryear. It is surrounded by low buildings with exposed stone and, on one side, the Church of Our Lady of the Angels. During your holiday in Pollença you can visit this 14th century temple that, despite having a simple exterior, houses an impressive interior.
Strolling through the cobblestone streets of Pollença, you will discover how a typical village of inland Mallorca is and you will breathe its peaceful setting. In addition, during your walk you will find souvenir shops of all kinds and charming restaurants with al fresco terraces. Getting lost in its narrow streets is a real pleasure.
Our cheap trips to Pollença are a great opportunity to get to know the wonderful cultural opportunities of the town, like the Dionís Bennàssar museum. This space occupies the house of the Mallorcan painter, where many of his personal belongings are preserved. Additionally, at the Museum Pollença you will discover an excellent collection of art from different eras. This centre is located in the old convent of San Domingo, a charming place.
The monument El Calvari may be the most emblematic of Pollença. To access the temple you need to climb an impressive 365-step staircase, one for each day of the year, decorated with 14 crosses in honour of Jesus Christ. Going up to the top is an experience that, with its views, will be beyond perfect.
Pollença offers another excursion to the top of a hill in its outskirts: the climb to the Sanctuary of Puig de María. It is a completely restored refuge from the year 1348 that, in addition to providing lodging, served very good food. Although, if you prefer, you can have a barbecue in the area that overlooks the town.
The means of transport available both to travel from different points in Mallorca to Pollença and to move around the area is by bus. However, holiday packages in Pollença are a highly recommended option, since you can include a rental car and save money and time during your travels.
