Monastery sights in Balearic Islands
- Sort by:
South of Pollença, off the Ma2200, one of Mallorca's most tortuous roads bucks and weaves up 1.5km of tight hairpin bends to this hilltop monastery (333m). The rambling residence was built in the 14th and 15th centuries and is worth the climb, not least for the splendid views over Pollença and Alcúdia bays.
The best views are those towards the jagged formations of the Formentor peninsula that look like giant waves about to break, while the Gothic chapel and refectory are highlights of the complex.
