Pollensa is a village on the island of Majorca with one of the richest histories of the Mediterranean Sea. Civilisations including the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Arabs and Romans have passed through its port…
Pollensa is a dynamic village whose square serves as the nerve centre of social activity. Watch the people passing by from the shade of majestic trees and choose from a fine assortment of bars and restaurants. There are two things visitors should not miss: a coffee in the most emblematic and popular bar in the place: "Can Moixet" (Bar Espanyol), and an authentic homemade ice cream at the kiosk located in the "Can Butxaca" square (Helados Valls).
Well worthy of a visit are the Roman bridge, the church built by the Templar Knights and the Baroque convent of Santo Domingo where the Festival of Pollensa and its internationally acclaimed concerts has been held for 50 years.
You can walk down to calle Jesus to the bottom of the 365-step staircase flanked by elegant Cyprus trees, which will lead you to a hermitage surrounded by crosses representing the Calvary of Jesus Christ. The panoramic view from the top is definitely worth the effort.
Another privileged spot is the Puig de Maria, from which you can view the peninsula of Formentor, Sant Vicenç, and the bays of Pollensa and Alcudia.
Pollensa boasts a long tradition of artisans and visitors will come across several rustic furniture factories, one of the few operational textile factories on the island, art galleries, decor stores, gift shops and gourmet food outlets.
