market in the old town of pollenca, majorca

Pollença old town, offers true rustic atmosphere that runs on every singe corner.

Pollença is situated about 3 miles inside the island, from the more well-known holiday destination, Port de Pollença, loved by many summer holidaymakers.

Pollença old town, is an excellent choice of holiday base, if you appreciate good food, local culture and direct access to the mountains.

Pollença has a lot of restaurants, bars and small cafeterias, located around in the narrow streets. All of these with an inspiring menu card, especially those located around the center of the town. Sitting in one of the restaurants on a warm spring day, eating tapas and doing some people watching on the main square, is like therapy to me.

There’s a good collection of restaurants on the Plaça Major, where the church is. This is naturally where most tourists go for meals or snacks, but if you are here for more than a short break, do try to browse the streets of Pollença, I promise you that you will find something attractive!

Infographic about Tramuntana region of Mallorca

The Tramuntana region

Tramuntana is both the name of the UNESCO protected mountain range that runs from south to north, as well as the name of the group of municipalities located in or close to these mountains.

When talking about Tramuntana in context of the mountain range, it is referred to as "Serra de Tramuntana", and when talking about the region, it is referred to simply as "Tramuntana".

The largest municipalities of the Tramuntana region, are Calviá and Andratx in the south and Pollenca in the north. The mountain range actually has its roots south of Malagá in Andalusiá.

The Serra de Tramuntana covers a surface of more than 30,000 hectares of landscape in Mallorca. The two main factors that make these mountains so unique, are the dry stone constructions and the hydraulic watering systems evidencing early day farming techniques. In almost any local area of the Tramuntana you travel, you will discover some of these very unique features which contributes to the picturesque settings.
