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.

Plaça Major

Visits
Accessible at all times.

Built in the nineteenth century to provide more open spaces for locals, this square hosts the parish church dedicated to the patron saint of Pollença and is the scene of traditional events.

This square was created between 1854 and 1857 to provide a new meeting point for Pollença locals, because a population spurt had made Plaça Vella, the previous social hub of the town, too small. 

Several improvements to the Plaça Major have been necessary over time, both to its paving and street furniture, but always in keeping with the original mid-nineteenth-century design. Its current appearance dates from the last of these improvements, which took place in 1999. Witness to all these changes in the square is the Church of Mare de Déu dels Angels, which was founded in the thirteenth century and is open to visitors.

A quintessential meeting point, the Plaça Major hosts the local market every Sunday and also a great deal of events steeped in tradition, such as the Els Cavallets dances, which can be seen during the celebrations of San Sebastián on 20th January, or Els Cossiers, a dance from medieval times performed on 2nd August as part of the Fiestas de la Patrona and believed to be a worship to agricultural gods.
