Santuari Del Puig De Maria, Pollenca

4.7
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites 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.

  • We took just over 30 minutes to reach the top. There’s a steep tarmac road then a very roughly cobbled path near the top. It’s well worth the hike as the views at the top are fantastic. You can also p...  more »

  • Park at roadside. Challenging but enjoyable walk to the Puig Maria. Excellent views. Reasonably priced cafe/restaurant at top. We went on overcast day.. perfect for the walk up! Definitely wear trainers and take a drink for this walk.
  • One of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Absolutely majestic and there best view on the island. But go one an overcast day as it's a steep 30+ minutes hike
  • Well worth a visit! Stunning views and great coffee! We managed to park halfway up the hill and then walk from there. There is a small free car park for about 5/6 cars where we parked but after that the road gets really tight so wouldn't advise driving past the car park. We passed lots of people walking from the bottom so that would be another option. From the small car park the walk took us about 30 - 40 mins. Quite steep obviously and at first we were walking on a narrow windy road then it turns to a path for the last 15 mins to the top. I would advise wearing walking shoes or at least trainers as the path is like a cobbled path. It's really beautiful and worth the steep walk, we had a walk around the buildings and took some amazing pictures of the stunning views. The coffee shop/cafe is ace and 2x coffees and 2x bottles of water only cost us 5 euros which we thought was great value - coffee was really good too. Thank you!! :-)
  • Comfortable basic accommodation for €14 single (€10 in downstairs rooms without the great view).
  • Really enjoyable walk with great views of Pollenca and beyond.
