Home / Pollensa Old Town

 

Pollensa Old Town with its pretty streets and squares are worth a see in Pollensa (Puerto Pollensa) . Several stone fountains, a charming parish church, the Roser Vell Oratory and the Baroque Monastery of Santo Domingo (St. Dominic’s) with its impressive cloister, 16th century retable and 18th century Valencian organ are also worth a visit and see.

The town of Pollensa lies at the foot of its calvari hill with its nice chapel and cypress-bordered stairway of 365 steps. The town’s main church is imposing, whilst the cloister of St. Dominic’s (Santo Domingo) serves as the venue for the Summer Music Festival. Also to the north of the town, there is a small yet well-preserved Roman bridge over the Torrente de Sant Jordi (St. George’s Torrent) that is an invaluable testimony to the Roman occupation in the 4th century.

A great day out at the Pollensa Old Town and experiencing the authentic Majorcan life by visiting the Gothic church, narrow streets and climbing the Calvari Steps (Calvary Way) for great views of the island is one of the best things to do in Pollensa.

Holidaymakers may spend time at the variety of cafes and restaurants at the square of the town which is very lively on Sundays during the weekly market.
