We are 2 adults and 2 teenagers and have just returned from a week in Pollenca. We decided to take this walk after reading about it in a Trip Advosor post, wanting something a bit different to the Calvary steps (which I also recommend). It...More

Climbing the 365 stairs up to Puig de Pollenca is nice, the view is great over the village and the surroundings. Been there done that.

Really enjoyed walking up to the monastery. It is very atmospheric when you reach it. Still and tranquil. It took us about 30 mins to reach the top with a few stops. It does require some effort but not for long.

Friends had visited the monastery previously and warned me it was a challenging climb so I knew what I was letting myself in for! I’m a reasonably fit 65 year old and walk regularly but not particularly up hills. The walk from the main road...More

Well worth the climb but not recommended with flip flops at midday! Take some water and go early. The drive up to the carpark (holds about 4 cars) is a bit hairy but removes the first third of the walk but I'd only recommend it...More

To go from bottom to top and back a certain level of fitness is required and plenty of water! It took us around an hour to climb to the top and around a few hundred yards from the top, steps start. Once at the top...More

We climbed the winding road at 7:00 to take advantage of the cooler conditions (recommended) and, it was well worth it. The monastery itself was very beautiful and interesting but, the views across Pollensa were breathtaking

This is well worth the effort, there are amazing views and a very sweet chapel to contemplate life awhile when you get there. If you're that way inclined bring some cat treats are the climb up is guarded by more than a few cats

Spent a couple of hours here. Great scenic drive up. Excellent to visit and having a pool made it nice to take a dip in the heat. Highly recommend

We took the car to Pollença and walked for about an hour uphill to reach the monastery at the top of the mountain. The surroundings are pretty boring, but the view is nice. The monastery is beautiful, but not breathtaking. All in all you need...More

Reasonable climb, spectacular views when you hit the summit. Careful coming down the steps as can be tricky at the top.

It does have overnight accommodation so would have thought it would be open for residents, but best to phone them. I was there between 2 - 3pm and they were taking calls for bookings.

I haven’t been in October but since most bars and restaurants stay open in Pollença and the Port till the end of October I’d imagine it will be open. It’s definitely a more comfortable time weather wise to climb. Enjoy!
