(220+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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.

  • We did the hike in the afternoon. The last part can be slippery if it has been raining or your shoes are not suited for the purpose. Possible to buy sodas and ice cream at the top before you go down. ...  more »
  • Decided on a whim to cycle up a rather stiff assent to see Santuari del Puig de Maria, got to 3/4 way up tarmac / concrete road turned to cobbles & gravel, so we carried our bikes up the remaining 150...  more »
  • A beautiful site, a convent used for retreats. The walk up is only for fit, active walkers but the climb is well worth it because the view is spectacular.  more »

  • Nice 45 minute walk to get there. Pa amb oli is among the best we had on Mallorca at a more than reasonable price. Great view. Goats for entertainment.
  • I've been visiting Mallorca for around 25 years and in particular Pollenca. This is a place I've wanted to walk to but never got around to doing. I went up this morning about 7.45 so it was nice and cool. What a wonderful experience. It's a steady enough walk until the road runs out and then you're on the rough stone path which can be a bit slippery on the way back down. It took me about 45 mins. A peaceful tranquil place with rewarding views in all directions. Only regret is I wish I'd done it years ago.
  • 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)
  • 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.
