We did the hike in the afternoon. The last part can be slippery if it has been raining or your shoes are not suited for the purpose. Possible to buy sodas and ice cream at the top before you go down. Not that strenuous -...More

Decided on a whim to cycle up a rather stiff assent to see Santuari del Puig de Maria, got to 3/4 way up tarmac / concrete road turned to cobbles & gravel, so we carried our bikes up the remaining 150m or so to what...More

A beautiful site, a convent used for retreats. The walk up is only for fit, active walkers but the climb is well worth it because the view is spectacular.

While the walk is quite heavy going due to being at the top of the hill, with a lot of distance having to be walked (cars can only go so far), the views at the top of Pollensa and surrounding countryside as well as the...More

If you want to exercise and challenge yourself to make sure that you're hungry for your next delicious Iberian meal than time your first walk up to the top. Sub 20 minutes is a good yard stick for a stiff walk. Sensational views across Pollenca...More

A lovely shaded walk up a steep zigzag road to an old monastery, which is now used as a sanctuary where people can stay for a retreat (tel: 0034 971 184132). Wonderful views from the sanctuary, which is open to casual visitors (08:30 – 16:30)...More

365 steps to this beautiful little church. Views out to the bay are beautiful and its a tranquil spot. We did it at 1300 on a blazing hot day - maybe not the best time! But there is a small cafe for juice or water...More

The puig is reached by a 45 minute walk up a steep windy road which later becomes an uneven cobbled path. It is possible to drive part way, but this is still followed by a steep walk to the top. I wouldn't really recommend for...More

Don't go for the museum, which even had the lights switched off when we went - but DO go for the uphill stroll with awe inspiring views when you reach the top - and the bonus of an excellent cup of coffee in the peaceful...More

Fantastic view but wear appropriate footwear - the 'path' at the top is VERY uneven. There is a lot of shade along the route but avoid the hike on a hot day.
