The north of Mallorca is one of the most attractive destinations in the Mediterranean. Located on the northern end of the Serra de Tramontana, Pollença is known for the beauty of the town and the hospitality of its people. Wandering around its streets, sitting in a terrace in the town square, taking advantage of the cultural offer, experiencing its colourful typical festivities or visiting the weekly market are a few of the activities available during your stay.

In Pollença, you will be able to enjoy quiet beaches and bays, excursions to mountains and valleys, biking tours and, ultimately, an offer that combines leisure and culture with a respect for nature and the environment.

The following are examples of its rich heritage:

Convent of Santo Domingo. A splendid Baroque building dating from the 16th century. It has a beautiful cloister that currently holds many cultural activities, among which is the yearly Pollença Music Festival.
