Check out Pollença!

Local poet Costa i Llobera masterfully transmitted the beauty and classical resonance of “The Pine Tree of Formentor”, which is still revered at the Literary Conversations held since 1959 at the present-day Hotel Barceló Formentor. In a similar vein, the town’s commitment to the world of culture remains firm to this very day. Tales that are within your reach to listen to, feel, experience or share with whoever you may wish.

Pollença, a place with stories to tell  

Picture a place where verdant pine-clad mountains descend to meet an intensely turquoise sea. A town where stunning backdrops, a fascinating past and friendly locals are part of everything you do. 

Imagine for a moment the authentic character of a dynamic town, with lively and creative people making Pollença a place with a full of content.

The town, with its old quarter, is the hub of social activities. Outlying resorts round off the destination: the Port, with excellent accommodation and tourist amenities, and Cala Sant Vicenç, with some of the best hotels on the island.

And, of course, the Formentor peninsula. Its famous hotel, its viewing point or its lighthouse have been sources of inspiration for politicians, artists and thinkers alike. Now you can discover them too.  

Welcome to Pollença, a place with stories to tell.

Cala Sant Vicenç

Visits
Open all day. Free admission.

Unique scenery, four bays with crystal-clear waters and the prehistoric Alzineret caves are all must-visits in Cala Sant Vicenç.

Cala Sant Vicenç boasts one of the town's most emblematic images, the jagged Cavall Bernat mountain ridge and its 300-metre-high cliff faces, widely portrayed in the works of artists who have sojourned in Pollença. Hikes in this area offer both unbeatable views and rugged terrain, which often calls for the use of hands to climb.

At the foot of the ridge you can admire the four bays of Cala Barques, Cala Clara, Cala Molins and Cala Carb, all lapped by crystal-clear waters. But these apparently calm waters conceal many shipwrecks from throughout history, from Ancient Greece right up to the twentieth century, because when the wind blows in from the north and the sea is rough, the bays entrap boats and drag them towards the rocks.
 
No visit to Cala Sant Vicenç would be complete without a tour of the prehistoric Alzineret caves, dug around 1600 BC in the Middle Bronze Age, also known as the pre-Talaiot period. They are actually burial mounds made up of several artificial funerary caves, which now only display certain structural features because, as so often happens with such ancient sites, they have been extensively pillaged and even stripped bare in some cases. For example, of the fourteen caves that were recorded in 1887, only seven remain now. They can be accessed by following a path that skirts the mounds.
