El Calvario

About

The calvary stairs is perhaps the biggest landmark of Pollença and a must see attraction in this area

The 365 steps stony stairway carved into the slope of the mountain, can be quite the struggle to climb. But I assure you it wil be worth the while! On top, you will enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views overlooking Pollença and Formentor. On a clear day, you can enjoy the sight of Menorca from the view´point.

On Good Friday, the calvary stairs are scene of a moving torchlight parade, where the last days of Jesus Christ, is being acted in a play.
