If you want to exercise and challenge yourself to make sure that you're hungry for your next delicious Iberian meal than time your first walk up to the top. Sub 20 minutes is a good yard stick for a stiff walk. Sensational views across Pollenca and out to the sea. You'll be delighted to find that there's a great little... More

A lovely shaded walk up a steep zigzag road to an old monastery, which is now used as a sanctuary where people can stay for a retreat (tel: 0034 971 184132). Wonderful views from the sanctuary, which is open to casual visitors (08:30 – 16:30) and has a cafe/bar (08:30 – 15:30), there is also a dining room with a... More

365 steps to this beautiful little church. Views out to the bay are beautiful and its a tranquil spot. We did it at 1300 on a blazing hot day - maybe not the best time! But there is a small cafe for juice or water at the top if you need it

The puig is reached by a 45 minute walk up a steep windy road which later becomes an uneven cobbled path. It is possible to drive part way, but this is still followed by a steep walk to the top. I wouldn't really recommend for prams or those mobility problems. Your efforts will be rewarded with stunning views and delicious... More

Don't go for the museum, which even had the lights switched off when we went - but DO go for the uphill stroll with awe inspiring views when you reach the top - and the bonus of an excellent cup of coffee in the peaceful cafe. It said an hour to walk up on the sign posts - with two... More

Fantastic view but wear appropriate footwear - the 'path' at the top is VERY uneven. There is a lot of shade along the route but avoid the hike on a hot day.

If you've got the legs then walk as Road will cause unnecessary stress. Beautiful church and castle at the top. Unspoilt and free :-)

Anybody staying in Pollenca looking for some exercise should walk up to the top of Puig De Maria, the hill overlooking the town. There is a beautiful monastery at the top, with a lovely cafe. After reaching the top in 35 degree heat, the ice cold homemade lemonade was extremely welcome!

The six of us (two adults and four children, ages 4 to 15) went up to Puig de Maria this morning and it was fantastic. We'd read that it took about 45 minutes to climb up there which was about right, and we took the buggy for when the 4 year old got too tired. The climb was steep but... More

We walked up with an 18m old in a sling. Wonderfully shaded for the most part and provided a nice balance between exercise and a relaxing walk while being rewarded with a real treat at the top in the form of amazing views over Pollenca. We reached the top around 10am and not busy. Start is easy to find being... More
