Mallorca: Pollença

Pollenca dates back to a Roman settlement of Pollentia, and the modern-day town was founded in 13th century on the ruins of the Roman outpost. It’ a beautiful medieval town with cobblestone streets and old buildings. The central square right in front of the 13th century Esglèsia de Nostra Senyora dels Àngels usually holds a spectacular farmer’s marker. The church itself is amazing, with stunning frescoes covering the dark medieval interior. But the main attraction in Pollenca is undoubtedly the 365-step stairway leading to the hilltop Calvary chapel – a good workout on the way up for some spectacular panoramic views.
