A Quick Guide to Pollença Town, Mallorca

 In Europe, Mallorca, Spain
Tucked just a 10 minute drive away from Puerto de Pollença and in between the gorgeous spanish mountains, Pollença town is a maze of narrow, cobbled one way streets, lined with small windowed and flower filled houses.
Find the Main Square (Placa Major) and you can enjoy a cone of fresh ice cream from one of the vans or a personal recommendation of mine is to head to Can Moixet (in the sq.) for a IceCream Cappuccino.

A serious game changer.

If you fancy a bite to eat, there are a variety of spanish tapas restaurants filling the street of Pollença or be it breakfast you’re after, you should check out Maduixa for both sweet and savoury pancakes and juices.
I can recommend the Spiruilina and avocado smoothie from Maduixa, but my girlfriends had goats cheese + fresh tomato crepes which looked amazing too. YUM.
{Maduixa is open Mon-Sun 11am-11pm}
Should you wish to work up an appetite or get a bit of movement going in the old legs, you must ascend the famous 365 steps from the centre of Pollensa to the church where you get a gorgeous overview of the town.
Make sure you dip into the boutique shops on the way up (perfect excuse for a breather too), as we found a gorgeous homemade vinegar shop where I picked up the tastiest lime and ginger balsamic vinegar to take home with me. There are lots of other lovely gift ideas in there too 🙂
When you get to the top of the steps, after you’ve taken an achievement selfie of course, there is a church and a little cafe where you can get refreshments or a cheeky ice cream. 🙂
If any of you fancy something a little more challenging, we noticed this monastery on the top of a surrounding mountain, which we later found to be called ‘The Puig de Maria’.
You can drive to the base of the mountain, leave your car and ascend the 40 minute pacey climb to the summit for an even more breathtaking view over the town.

Pretty cool view hey!
(Also, if you climb up here, you definitely deserve an ice cream cappuccino or pancake when you get back down)

We only spent one morning and one afternoon exploring Pollenca so never had dinner there and hence cannot recommend any specific eateries from personal experience.
If you have any recommendations you could share with everyone, food, restaurant, wine or activity related… Please do leave a comment below :-)Oh and one more thing… whilst you’re in the area you MUST head up to Formentor to watch the sunset. Just saying.
