The Balearic Islands 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 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.

"Great Apartment, great location, great host."
We stayed in the Pollensa Apartment for 8 nights in July 2013. The apartment is in the most perfect location as you are literally just around the corner from the beautiful town square and its numerous restaurants and bars. There is however no noise whatsoever when you are in the apartment. The apartments itself is spotless, in excellent condition and very large. There were only two of us but even if we had been there with two other guests it would have still been very spacious. There is everything you could wish for re equipment and the big plus is the roof terrace. Again this is very spacious, well equipped and as great views, a real plus. We would have no hesitation in recommending or staying here again.

"FAbulous Apartment, great location and views"
My first time in Pollensa, and how lucky were we to stay in this amazing apartment. The layout is very spacious and the views are superb. A 2 minute walk into the center of the old town. The owner and his family are very courteous and helpful.
I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough to do it justice.
