Pollença is a town and municipality situated in the far north corner of the island of Mallorca, near Cap de Formentor and Alcúdia. The town lies about 6 km west of its port, Port de Pollença.
Situated at the eastern end of the Sierra de Tramuntana, between two hills, the town is large enough to offer a host of attractions, yet small enough to explore on foot.
Pollença has retained much of its original charm and is relatively uncrowded compared to the busier beach resorts in Mallorca. The Placa Major hosts a market on Sundays and a wide choice of restaurants and cafes line the nearby streets.
Pollença has many fairs and fiestas throughout the year. One of the most popular is the Wine Fair in April, held in the Santo Domingo church. Try samples of locally produced Mallorcan wine.
A big fiesta held at the end of July and into August is La Patrona, includes a mock battle between the invading Moors and the local Christians.
The Autumn Fair is held in November and celebrates agricultural produce along with local crafts.
