Holiday in Pollensa: Must-see tourist attractions
One of the most popular tourist destinations in Mallorca, a holiday in Pollensa offers the best of the rustic countryside, alongside the beautiful waters surrounding the beach resort of nearby Puerto Pollensa.
Visitors to this part of the island get to experience all the natural beauty found within the Tramuntana mountain range, and with just a short drive, can be sipping a cold drink overlooking Pollensa Bay. The landscape is varied and the locals are warm and welcoming, making it easy to see why so many choose to visit Pollensa during a family holiday in Mallorca. If you want to experience this beautiful gem of the north without booking into a crowded resort, a private luxury villa for your holiday in Pollensa is just the answer. Not only do you get your own space and privacy from your holiday accommodation, but you are also close to all of the must-see tourist attractions and sights to discover:
Taking it’s name from the luscious pine trees that line this street, Pine Walk is a great place to wile away an afternoon in the Mallorcan sun. This coastal walkway is a great place to enjoy the majestic scenery of the mountains, or to pop in for a bite to eat in one of the restaurants and bars overlooking the beach.
Chapel of Calvari
At the top of 365 steps from the centre of old town lies the Chapel of Calvari, a small, old chapel providing fantastic views of Pollensa. The trek up is quite steep, but the stairs are lined with beautiful authentic houses to admire, as well as the garden walls offering seating to break up the ascent.
La Casa Museo Dionís Bennàssar
Art lovers staying in a holiday villa in Pollensa should be sure to pay La Casa Museo Dionís Bennàssar a visit. This small museum pays homage to the short but remarkable life of Dionís Bennàssar, displaying his vibrant artworks at the foot of the Calvari steps.
Pollensa Old Town
Quaint, cobbled streets, beautiful fountains and boutiques and cafes abound in the old town of Pollensa. You can explore the architecture of the Baroque Monastery of Santo Domingo, or explore the island’s past under Roman rule with a visit to a well-preserved Roman bridge over St. George’s Torrent.
