We climbed the winding road at 7:00 to take advantage of the cooler conditions (recommended) and, it was well worth it. The monastery itself was very beautiful and interesting but, the views across Pollensa were breathtaking

This is well worth the effort, there are amazing views and a very sweet chapel to contemplate life awhile when you get there. If you're that way inclined bring some cat treats are the climb up is guarded by more than a few cats

Spent a couple of hours here. Great scenic drive up. Excellent to visit and having a pool made it nice to take a dip in the heat. Highly recommend

We took the car to Pollença and walked for about an hour uphill to reach the monastery at the top of the mountain. The surroundings are pretty boring, but the view is nice. The monastery is beautiful, but not breathtaking. All in all you need...More

Reasonable climb, spectacular views when you hit the summit. Careful coming down the steps as can be tricky at the top.

This is not a long walk but the final 15 minutes are reasonably steep and quite demanding underfoot on a winding cobbled path. The view at the top are well worth the effort, most people park near the bottom of the hill but there is...More

The hike was easy going for the most part (the heat made it harder than it will normally be). The last 15 minutes are on somewhat slippery stones, meaning you have to watch where you are going, especially on the way back. The view was...More

We went as a family, two grandparents aged 71and 70, daughter and son-in-law, and grand-daughter of 11. We all enjoyed the zig Zag climb up to the old monastery, and had a welcome drink at the top with fantastic views all round! The top part...More

It is possible to get 1/2 to 3/4 up a very steep climb but the latter part is not as it is unmade and uneven surface followed by cobbles. If you took the bike you would be pushing or carrying it, not recommended although l... More
