Sights & attractions in Pollensa. At the eastern end of the Serra de Tramuntana and tucked between two hills, each topped by a sacred site, Pollenca is the perfect Mallorcan town. Large enough to avoid being twee but small enough to wander round in a morning, it has none of the feel of other towns which have succumbed under the sheer weight of tourism.Foreigners have long been attracted here, but Pollensa has learned to accept and adapt to tourism without losing its soul. Cafe life is still the rule; if you want to join in, come on a Sunday morning when the Placa Major is filled with market stalls and the locals congregate after church to relax in the Cafe Espanyol.Pollenca's port, Puerto de Pollenca lies a few kilometres to the north. It has a glorious beach and a further selection of restaurants and cafes to enjoy.Pollenca is a delightful place to wander around. The town is filled with characterful lanes that wind around little squares - you will notice how spotlessly clean the whole place is. The main square, Placa Major is home to the 18th century Nostra Senyora Del Angels church with it's rather fabulous rose window.The Convent de Sant Domingo is the other main church in Pollenca. It was built between 1588 and 1616 and has a baroque cloister with four portico corners. The cloisters are home to the Museum of Pollenca and contains the remains of prehistoric sculptures shaped like bulls, as well as a mandate (Tibetan sand painting) given by the Dalai Lama in 1990. It also houses a collection of contemporary art and works by the artist Atilio Boveri. The cloisters of the convent are the venue for Pollenca's celebrated classical music festival. The convent also hosts the wonderful Pollenca Art Fair each year at the beginning of November. Next to the convent lie the gardens of Joan March with its 17th century tower.The Dionis Bennassar Museum is loacted in a typical Mallorcan house and is filled with the painter's works and personal belongings.The Pont Roma (Roman bridge) on the edge of town gives a clue to Pollenca's long history and its name dates from the 14th century, when settlers from Alcudia named the town after their former Roman capital, Pollentia (the ancient name for Alcudia).
Things to do in Pollensa
Pollenca has many little boutiques and gift shops selling locally crafted goods from jewellery to ceramics, fabrics and interior decorations (try to visit the Pollenca fair in the middle of November if crafty fairs are your thing!). The market in Pollenca is held every Sunday between 8.30am and 1.00pm. The market in Port de Pollenca is on Wednesdays.Pollenca is hugely popular with walkers and cyclists thanks to its marvellous location in the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains. Coastal walks are also popular, particularly up towards the Cap de Formentor on the north-westerly coast of Mallorca - road cyclists are also fond of the twisty road that takes you to the lighthouse on the Cap.Sailors are attracted to the area for the northern coastline and there are plenty of water sports at the beaches of both Port de Pollenca and Port d'Alcudia. Golf enthusiasts have several golf courses close by, and there are a number of horse riding centres in the locality too.
