At the eastern end of the Tramuntana Mountains lies the stylish and cultural ancient town of Pollensa, probably one of the most beautiful towns on the island of Mallorca. With its picturesque old town, narrow streets and impressive main square, lined with cafes, restaurants and bars, Pollensa is steeped in traditional culture. Our villas in Pollensa are set in the green countryside, a short drive from the nearby beachfront in Puerto Pollensa.

Pollensa is a short drive away from the glorious sandy beaches of Puerto Pollensa and Alcudia. Here you can bask in the warm sunshine, or partake in some of the varied watersports that are on offer.
History and Culture in Pollensa
The town has several places of interest to visit, including the Roman bridge, which is still in use. The bridge has been crucial for Pollensa inhabitants, because until the nineteenth Century it was the only safe way to cross the Torrente de Sant Jordi during high water. Outside the town is the Santuari del Puig de Maria, a modest 330m high mountain. At the top of the mountain sits the traditional sandstone built monastery and chapel. The chapel was constructed in 1348 with a monastery added 14 years later. The monastery still retains traditional decor with tiled floors and small windows, along with a magnificent dining room.
