The Mallorca/Majorca region
About Pollensa and surrounding area:
With about 8,000 residents, Pollensa, or Pollença, as it is called by the Majorcans, is the largest town in northern Majorca. The town appears to the visitor today as a successful mix of time-honoured tradition that draws on a long history and a lively young fun loving scene. The village with its old stone houses and gardens with colourful bushes and slender cypress, offering the lush vegetation of the Mediterranean, is an enviable location.
The country town in Majorca is located in a fertile valley, the "Huerta de Pollensa," or the "Garden of Pollensa" which opens far out to sea towards Puerto de Pollensa. On the land side are the two-edged and partially wooded mountains, "El Calvario" and "Nostra Senyora del Puig". In modern times, the British first discovered the privileged position of the area and created numerous real estate opportunities here, but now German real estate buyers are increasingly discovering the beauty of the north and buying an apartment or a villa in a desirable location on the surrounding hills. The rather rare "se vende" signs in the windows with properties for sale attest to the attractiveness of real estate and high satisfaction of their residents. The picturesque fishing village of Cap Formentor and Puerto Pollensa offer a spectacular close to nature experience and a colourful harbour bustle.
In the picturesque narrow streets you meet women wearing simple grey-brown Majorcan dresses alongside colourful and airily dressed tourists looking for the mediterranean flair and the historical spirit of past times together. The serene and sometimes the heavy, oppressive course of history in Pollensa was lively and often cruel, like all other major settlements in the Balearics.
Because of the fertile soil, humans settled in prehistoric times. In 121 BC, the Romans conquered the island and founded "Pollentia" (the Mighty) as the capital of Majorca. Under the sway of Rome the largest Balearic Island and the city flourished. In 426 BC the vandals brought "Pollentia" to the ground. The few surviving inhabitants then built a new settlement 5 km inland, the foundation for today's Pollenca. Then in the 10th century came the Berbers from North Africa, who conquered the island and ruled until they in turn were defeated by the Christian knights in 1229. The Knights Templar then took over the rule of Pollensa until they were dissolved in 1312 and the order replaced by the Order of St. John. The residents of Pollensa practiced agriculture and animal husbandry, set forth goods and traded over time.
With a dramatic backdrop of the Tramuntana mountains and nestled in a sheltered horseshoe shaped bay is the pretty resort of Puerto Pollensa.
Situated at the opposite end of the wide bay from the larger resort of Alcúdia, it's golden sand that shelves gently into the sea is a huge draw for families as is the fact that the resort is, in the main, pedestrianised, so creating a safer environment for children. But a big plus by far is that parents can enjoy an evening meal at one of the many beachside restaurants whilst the kids play safely on the beach within full view! How relaxing is that?
Originally a fishing village, this popular town still retains a nautical air with a lovely marina filled with smart yachts. The newer part of the resort stretches out along the promenade which backs the wide sandy beach; lively by day and a popular strolling place in the early evening there are a number of good open air cafe bars where you can relax over a coffee whilst watching the 'Pollensa' world pass by.
Across from the marina, the characterful old Town is a mix of narrow streets lined with bars, restaurants and shops providing the perfect place to spend an evening soaking up the atmosphere, particularly in the main square where you get a mix of locals and holidaymakers.
For shopping opportunities – there's nothing better than the weekly market held in the main square each Wednesday. Throw yourself into the hustle and bustle of market day and hunt around the stalls – many with local crafts and produce.
Spotlight Tip: Try the 'Pine Walk'...where you can stroll along under the shade of the large pine trees whilst looking at the marvellous old properties on one side, whilst the kids run along the beach on the other. It's popular in the evenings when the more energetic go the whole length from the marina, past the pavement cafes and to the wonderfully genteel Hotel Illa d'Or.
