The 30 minute "ish" walk is not to be taken lightly - mostly rough road ending in a stony track that is glass like after the 1000s of people have worn the cobbles over the years. Once at the top the views are breathtaking. Make time to explore inside and see how life was in the past - not forgetting... More

This place is good for hiking, I loved the place and the way we have to go. One who loves hiking should definitely visit this place. Not worth for people who don't like hiking but still wanna c it.

Staying in Pollensa and had been looking up at the top of the mountain we could see the tower of this building and decided to explore. The climb was steep but straightforward until past the halfway mark when the concrete surface changed to cobbles and made it a little trickier to walk on unless you had the right footwear on....

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.... More

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.

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.

While the walk is quite heavy going due to being at the top of the hill, with a lot of distance having to be walked (cars can only go so far), the views at the top of Pollensa and surrounding countryside as well as the monastery itself make it well worth it, particularly if the weather is good.
