When to visit Pollensa

Pollensa is a lively town both among its locals and international residents, and for this reason you might prefer to visit at a particular time of year. A good time to book self-catering apartments in Pollensa Majorca in general has got to be during the spring and autumn, as prices for holiday apartments are more reasonable and you are still able to benefit from the sunlight and longer days. The summertime usually starts in the month of June where the average temperature is between 27 and 30 degrees Celsius, and the peak of summer is during July and August. It is during these two months that the prices for holiday accommodation in Pollensa will be the most expensive, but it is guaranteed good weather.

Cap de Formentor and points of interests

Pollensa is a historic town which is characterised by the ‘blonde’ architecture and sandy buildings alongside the stunning backdrop of the Tramuntana Mountains. Its history, in fact, dates back to the Roman period when they landed on the shores of the island in 123 BC. Their base was in Alcudia which was once named Pollentia, and is why Pollensa got its name. In the Middle Ages, it was conquered by the Arabs and eventually taken by King Jaume I, who gifted the town of Pollensa to the Knights Templar, which still retains elements of this influence in its churches such as the Parròquia de la Mare de Déu del Àngels. If you’re thinking of booking a holiday letting in Pollensa you will not run out of things to enjoy here.

  • Cap de Formentor: The most iconic peninsula off the north of Majorca which is wild and winding in its hairpin bends. It is popular with both cyclists and motorists alike, and has some of the most fantastic sandy beaches you can find hidden behind its cliffs that climb up to 400m in height. While the drive is rather dramatic and at times a little scary, you will be glad to have made the journey once you reach the lighthouse for the incredible views across to the bays of Pollensa, Alcudia and even Menorca in the distance.
  • Santuari del Puig de Maria: The monastery built atop the Puig de Pollensa. It is no longer a religious residence as the nuns were told to move to Palma after 1576. Now it is a place for accommodation in the former cells and a restaurant.
  • Casa Museu Dionís Bennàssar: The eponymous artist lived here between 1904 and 1967 and painted a number of rural landscapes and more. Here you can find out more about his artistic legacy.
  • El Calvari: Climb 365 steps to one of the most scenic locations in all of Majorca for seeing across the whole island.
  • Puig de Pollenca: The town’s very own mountain, which can be climbed within the hour. It is approximately 330m in height, and is home to a chapel which was built following the Black Death that was raging throughout the town in the 14th century. It is an easy hike up to the top and is great for views over the countryside. Now at the top is a refuge should you need to stay for the night.
  • Roman Bridge (Pont Romà): A great example of the Roman influence in Mallorca, and one of the only remaining landmarks of its kind. It crosses the Torrente de Sant Jordi.
  • Convent of Sant Domingo: A remarkably beautiful monastery which is famous for its cloister in which it hosts the Pollensa Classical Music Festival alongside an Arts and Crafts Fair and a Wine Fair. Within you will also find the Pollensa Museum.
