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.

The fishermens' route
Level of difficulty: easy
Total ascent:26-150 m
Distance covered: 2,2 km.
Height : 120m
Estimated time: 40 min.
The walk starts in a track of land which crosses a pine wood, we arrive to an opening, we are going to walk for 35 minutes, and when arriving at the end we will find a deep excavation in the rock where an artillery unit had to be placed. During the walk we will enjoy unsurpassable sights to Cala Sant Vicenç, the cliffs in the Cavall Bernat mountain range and Colomer islet. It is recommended to do a little climbing (5minutes), following the milestones, to be able to contemplate an interesting scence of the north east side of the coast of Pollença, the Castell del Rei, cala Estremer, Punta Galera and Punta Topina.
