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 for refreshments and you can explore the chapel whilst up there.

Walked from the bottom with a 4 year old and 9 year old. As others have said, the cobbles you walk on at the top part can be slippy so wear sensible footwear. It took us between 30-45 mins to get there with photo stops and without hurrying ourselves. It really is worth stopping to appreciate the view, it's beautiful. Cafe at the top seems reasonably priced and we enjoyed some ice creams before making our way back down.

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. Not that strenuous - my son ran up....

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 150m or so to what can only be described as a stunning view over Pollença, Port Pollença & surroundings. The church itself is stunning and an amazing feat of building in itself, worth the hour & half walk up or 20min bike up (take trainers for the rest of the way) walking in cycling shoes not much fun great little café there as well

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.
