Pollença Travel Guide

Pollença

This is a pretty little town, with a history that goes back at least as far as the Roman occupation of the island; the only trace of that period is the stone Roman Bridge at the edge of town. In the 13th century, Pollença and much of the land around it was owned by the Knights Templar, who built the imposing church of Nuestra Senyora de Los Ángeles on the west side of the present-day Plaça Major. The church looks east to the 1,082-foot peak of the Puig de Maria, with the 15th-century sanctuary at the top. The Calvari of Pollença is a flight of 365 stone steps to a tiny chapel and a panoramic view as far as Cap de Formentor. There's a colorful weekly market at the foot of the steps on Sunday mornings.
