The Mallorca/Majorca region
Majorca is the largest Spanish island and is located in the Mediterranean Sea. The capital of the island, Palma, is a great place to visit, with plenty on offer for tourists from historical sights to bars and restaurants.
Like the other Balearic Islands of Ibiza, Formentera, and Minorca, the island is a hugely popular tourist destination, which is unsurprising considering the sunny climate, beautiful beaches and laid back lifestyle
The Pollensa area
The town of Pollensa in northern Mallorca lies some 8kms. inland from the bay of Pollensa. Guarded by the Puig Maria (puig = Catalan for hill), Pollensa has retained much of its immense charm despite the new building of residential stock, a reflection of its considerable popularity, not least amongst those from other countries who have chosen to settle in the town. Pollensa has a rich history, its “modern” era starting with the foundation of a
settlement at the foot of the Calvari in the early fifth century.
The name Pollensa is derived from Pollentia, the name of the Roman town in Alcudia, from where came those who created the settlement. In keeping with other places in Mallorca, Pollensa can boast a history that saw Egyptians, Romans, Moors and Ottomans all having a say in the affairs of the town. The Pharaohs founded an earlier city of Bocchoris in pre-Christian days.
The Romans, whilst holding Mallorca as part of the Western empire, have not left a notable legacy in Pollensa, unlike in nearby Alcudia. Influence that they had was diminished after the Vandals sacked the Balearics in 426, though the Byzantines duly arrived some hundred years or so later. Islamic power kicked in in the early tenth century, was eliminated in 1229 by the Aragon king Jaime I, and finally rebuffed in 1550 by Joan Más who led the repulsion of the Ottomans under Dragut who had attempted to claim the town for the empire.
Less violently, and coming closer to today, Pollensa has developed a strong artistic and artisan culture. The founding of a school for painting in 1913 by Anglada Camarasa fostered a tradition, especially of impressionist art, carried on subsequently by the likes of Joaquín Mir.
The town nowadays houses several fine galleries and art shops. Poetry, to the forefront of this being Miguel Costa i Llobera whose monument can be found at the base of the Puig Maria, also blossomed, as did a musical tradition, the greatest expression of this now being the annual Festival of Pollensa, founded by the violinist Philip Newman in the early '60s, which each summer attracts performers (mainly classical) from many different countries.
The artisan and craft tradition owes much to the reputation and innovation of Marti Vicenç, whose eponymous museum is located towards the base of the Calvari steps. Vicenç developed textile technology that can now be witnessed in the astonishingly vibrant and rich-coloured textiles in Galeries Vicenç.
Places to visit: Formentor, Puerto de Pollensa, Cala Sant Vicens, Calvario, Serra de Tramuntana.....

The apartment is exactly as it looks in the photos. It is furnished to a modern standard but is also rustic in its decor, e,g. white-washed walls and stripped floorboards painted white - it's lovely. It's extremely well equipped and has everything you could possibly need - washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, oven and hob and plenty of crockery and utensils. The shower is fantastic and although the bedroom is quite small there is plenty of room to hang/put away clothes - loads of hangers. The bed is really comfortable. Although there was only one set of towels and bedding, we only had to ask Andreu for more and he supplied them immediately. The outside terrace, although not huge, is still big enough to sunbathe on and gets the sun all day. The location is excellent, being right in the heart of the town and although you can hear the clock tower chiming, the noise outside is really minimal considering where you are. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
