4.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
The sandstone buildings on the summit of were once a convent and chapel. The location offered the nuns solitude and views to accompany their worship. The traditional architecture, featuring small windows and tiled floors, ensures that the buildings' interiors stay relatively cool during the warm months. Tour the rooms, including a large dining area that was a regular gathering place for the faithful. The attraction is only accessible by foot from the base of the summit, so wear sensible walking shoes. The restaurant next to the convent serves simple, traditional fare, including local olive oil, meats, cheese, and vegetables.

  • Just wow! What a place. It atmosphere! After a beautiful and rugged hike, we reached this place of a beauty and d an extraordinary quietude. S time is stopped, a sense of deep well be emerges from this monastery which dominates all the part is on the island. Difficult to come down so we're the top. A movie sets!

  • We mounted the first 110 metres in height in the car we left in a small parking lot. And it's that we mounted the remaining 230 meters walk! It calls for efforts that are well rewarded when we get to the monastery: the panorama is total. And each chooses following his heart why it up here. By faith, for accommodation, for the pleasure of the effort.

  • Frankly speaking, during the summer, Reveille very well heavy. We should, perhaps, hours 7 am to come. If crawl back to the top, the views are simply stunning, but I was so tired that I could then recall climbing only browsing images on disk. An ancient tower and the walls of the monastery of 14 century, not impressed, but the views of Cape Formentor-worth of heavy walking.

  • An absolute must! It was a good 45 minute walk (we took an hour though because we kept taking photos). It gets rather slippery as you get to the top but isn't that part of the fun? The most stunning views of Pollenca, Alcudia, coast and mountains - so lots of good selfie opportunities. It's a lovely peaceful and quiet monastery with the most beautiful artwork inside. The café's got good priced food like chips and ice cream. The staff were so lovely. We went midday which was probably not the best idea, to make it easier on yourself definitely go earlier on/later. Take your camera and plenty of water!😎
  • Peace and tranquility😌😌😌😌😌 (Best going early morning so you make the accent in the morning shade and coolness)
  • When visiting Pollensa this is a must visit destination. It's a nice walk with a little bar at the top to eat and drink something. The top of the mountain gives you a great view and very different perspective on Pollensa, the Calvario steps and the surrounding area.
  • The walk up here is like your own pilgrimage. I recommend that you park at the very bottom and walk the whole way up as the sense of achievement is so much better. When you reach the top it is an interesting place to look around and you can get refreshments but really it is all about the peace, tranquillity and the views.
  • Nice climb up to the location. Great view and a good place to eat an ice on top of the mountain will reward you.
