Santuari Del Puig De Maria, Pollenca

4.6
#2 of 14 in Things to do in Pollenca
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.

    The advice given in earlier reviews about not wearing flip flops was invaluable as the last third of the journey was cobbled and needed sensible shoes. The walk was steep for a standard road which mad...  more »

    We are a family of 5 (kids 10-13) and really enjoyed this hike. It does not take more than 40 minutes to get to the top. It was great to get out and be active as we have been indulging in such great f...  more »

  • Comfortable basic accommodation for €14 single (€10 in downstairs rooms without the great view).
  • A good hour long steep walk with a proper path, absolutely worth it as the views are 360° and truly magnificent. The monastery at the top has a great little cafe and w.c.! Fantastic.
  • 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.
  • Brisk uphill walk to quiet monastey with beautiful views
  • 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.
