The walk to the top of this hill is well worth it but you need sensible shoes, a hat and water. We would recommend going before the day gets too hot. We set off at 8.30 a.m. and came down by 12.00 noon. At the...More

This is not a hard walk but towards the top the steps are worn and shiny. I wouldn't recommend doing it in the rain, and wearing good shoes is sensible, more for the descent than the ascent. The view from the top is exquisite and...More

Advertised as a 2.2km stroll, this was more like an uphill hike. Views across the valley to Polenca old town were lovely, with Calvario Church on the opposite hillside. Convenient cafe in monastery with good priced sandwiches. BE ADVISED: last 500m on rough stone path,...More

The 30 minute "ish" walk is not to be taken lightly - mostly rough road ending in a stony track that is glass like after the 1000s of people have worn the cobbles over the years. Once at the top the views are breathtaking. Make...More

This place is good for hiking, I loved the place and the way we have to go. One who loves hiking should definitely visit this place. Not worth for people who don't like hiking but still wanna c it.

Around 45 minutes to get to the top and 35 minutes down. Make sure you wear sturdy footwear as the tarmac turns to cobbles from around halfway. Views from the top over the bay of Pollenca and Formentor peninsular are amazing. Basic cafe at top...More

I'd agree with all of the above. There are loads of excellent cycling routes in Mallorca, but this isn't one of them!
