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.

Port de Pollença

Visits
Accessible at all times.

From being just a tiny fishing pier at the end of nineteenth century, in a few decades Port de Pollença became the mainstay of the local economy thanks to the tourism boom.

Port de Pollença, nicknamed 'U moll' (the pier) by locals, is a clear example of how tourism can completely revamp the economy and appearance of a place in just a few decades. In the early twentieth century, 85% of the population lived directly from the land. Agriculture remained the town's main industry until the 1960s when the tables turned with the advent of tourism, which now accounts for 70% of the economy of not just Pollença but the whole of Mallorca.

Throughout history, the coastline of Pollença was sparsely populated. In fact, the first pier wasn't built until 1829, and even by 1900 the area only had around one hundred inhabitants. At the turn of the century, Port de Pollença became first a summer resort for Mallorca's wealthy classes and shortly afterwards a pioneering international tourism hub, made up mainly by the many artists who came to Pollença, attracted by its light and inspiring scenery.

During the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) tourism remained buoyant, as Spanish, German and Italian officials were stationed at the seaplane base in Port de Pollença. After the war, and due to the outbreak of World War II (1939-45), tourism ground to a halt but soon bounced back in the 1950s, when visitors returned and money was ploughed into the industry, triggering urban growth in the 1960s.

Tourism has boomed since then, as Port de Pollença still holds a special attraction for all visitors to Mallorca, with striking examples of what the town was like in the early twentieth century, such as the Virgen del Carmen church and the Plaça Miquel Capllonch where it stands.
