Great view!

Fantastic view but wear appropriate footwear - the 'path' at the top is VERY uneven. There is a lot of shade along the route but avoid the hike on a hot day.

If you've got the legs then walk as Road will cause unnecessary stress. Beautiful church and castle at the top. Unspoilt and free :-)

Anybody staying in Pollenca looking for some exercise should walk up to the top of Puig De Maria, the hill overlooking the town. There is a beautiful monastery at the top, with a lovely cafe. After reaching the top in 35 degree heat, the ice cold homemade lemonade was extremely welcome!

The six of us (two adults and four children, ages 4 to 15) went up to Puig de Maria this morning and it was fantastic. We'd read that it took about 45 minutes to climb up there which was about right, and we took the buggy for when the 4 year old got too tired. The climb was steep but... More

We walked up with an 18m old in a sling. Wonderfully shaded for the most part and provided a nice balance between exercise and a relaxing walk while being rewarded with a real treat at the top in the form of amazing views over Pollenca. We reached the top around 10am and not busy. Start is easy to find being... More

This was my third visit to pollensa and I have never got around to making this trip so this time I left my family by the pool and set off solo. I left the car at the bottom of the hill. It's a steep walk and a little challenging on the large cobbles near the top. wear suitable footwear, trainers... More

This was an interesting visit. We drove half way up then parked and walked the rest of the way as roads are steep and hairpin bends required three-point turns to navigate them! The walk from halfway up with four children aged 5-10 took about an hour. It was worth it as this place is amazing. It has an interesting history... More

Visited on a cloudy my day. My kids enjoyed climbing to the top and we enjoyed the views with a coffee and ice-cream. The walk up took us about 40 minutes. There is a cafe that serves refreshments in the monastery.

Long climb recommend walk early morning as later in day heat would make climb difficult(and wear good footwear)once at the top the view makes the climb well worth the effort. Sit and enjoy the view whilst enjoying a light lunch of bread and olives and freshly squeezed orange juice

This is a fantastic walk and well worth the effort for the views and to visit the 'refuge' at the top. I have done the walk 10+ times and the only thing I would recommend is that you wear some sturdier shoes with some tread. The path, particularly at the top, is stony and really demands some running shoes or... More
