“You don't have to be super fit to enjoy the views”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

The views along the way up the steps to the church are unbeatable.

“Worth a stop off”
Reviewed 29 March 2011

Parking is notoriously hard in Pollenca. This is something to do if you have a car for the day, or the weather is a little iffy, or you go out of season. Not something for a gloriously hot sunny day in July? There are 365 steps to represent each day of the year (not sure if they add one extra step every four years??) from popular but pretty Pollenca and the views back down are memorable. Of course at the bottom of the steps there is an ice cream place to undo all the good work. Whilst going up/down the steps check out the views down some of the side streets; just timeless. As a religious experience I did not see it; but as a place for great views, a bit of exercise and some nice photos this was decent.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 20 July 2009

This is a walk of 365 steps up to a church from Pollenca town square. The chapel isn't anything to write home about but there are nice views up there. It's a enjoyable walk with young kids and and gave them a good challenge to walk up the steps.

It's easy to reward them when they come back down by sitting down and relaxing with dinner or some ice-cream in the square at the end of the steps.
