Pollensa is without any doubt one of the most attractiv and emblematic villages on the island. Its stimulating landscape and mixture of sea and mountains have always been a subject and motivation for painters from all over the world, trying to capture their essence on their canvases. The most representative image of the town is ‘El Calvari’, the hill with 365 steps with a small chapel at the top with a view of the whole town and surroundings. The Calvari is also famous for the ‘Davallament’, the Easter procession. The Roman Bridge, the Puig de Maria, the parish Church, the main square, the Santo Domingo convent, The Museum of Pollensa as well as other places of cultural interest can –and should- be visited walking along the streets that preserve the traditional style of the town. Visitors also enjoy the quiet, slow paced village life, the nice bars and cafés at the square and the local shops.
Port de Pollensa
Port de Pollensa is one of the main tourist resorts on Mallorca and it is the second most populated area in the municipality. At the back of a wide bay lies ‘La Fortalesa’ (the Fortress), protected by the ‘Punta de l’Avanzada’. It was built in 1624 and is now private property. Port de Pollensa combines a complete and modern touristic offer and moreover, its is an ideal place to practice – or learn- all kinds of nautical sports and to enjoy nature. Very few souls resist the beauty of the wide blue bay with the imposing mountains in the back. The front line stroll, the ‘Pine Walk’ es an emblematic area, bordered by old traditional style fisherman houses and is along with the square and the nice front line al fresco terraces a natural meeting point.
Cala Sant Vicenç
Cala Sant Vicenç is famous for the beauty of its landscape and wonderful views. One of the most characteristic and portrayed images is the one of ‘Cavall Bernata’ the emblematic mountain edge that takes the shape of a mystical horse when a number of special conditions coincide. At its feet a group of inlets of light and crystaline waters, ideal for snorkling and scuba diving, invites for a swim; Cala Barques, Cala Clara, Cala Molins and Cala Carbó. There are several good restaurants, cafés and bars, as well as nice residential areas, all with fantastic views and surrounded by pine and oak trees. The seven preshistoric caves, ‘L’Alzinaret’ are dated from the Mediterranean Bronze Age and are of great historical interest.
Formentor, the possible utopia
Formentor is one of the most wonderful and most visited places on the island, a meeting place of intellectuals, politicians and artists.The emblematic Hotel Formentor is and has always been a symbol for elegance, tradition and privacy.
If we follow the road that takes us to the Faro, the lighthouse, we will find inlets of incomparable beauty along the way; Cala Figuera, Cala Murta and Cala En Gossalba. The road ends by the lighthouse, at the very northern tip of the island. From here you can see Menorca’s coastline if the day is sunny and clear. A visit to the Mirador del Colomer (the viewpoint halfway from Port de Pollensa) and the Talaia d’Albercuix (the watchtower) is a must.
