Pollença

pollenca

 

Pollença is a municipality of Mallorca located on the north end of the island. It is the most northerly point of the Sierra de Tramuntana and has more than 16,000 inhabitants.

 

In the municipality of Pollença there are three urban centers: Pollença village in the interior, Puerto de Pollença in the bay and Cala San Vicente on the north coast. A highlight point in this municipality is the Formentor peninsula, a beautiful geographical point of reference. Pollença borders with the municipal terms of Sa Pobla, Alcudia, Campanet, and Escorca.

 

The town has its origins in the s. XIII, but the municipality of Pollença inherits the name of the Roman settlement of Pollentia, which, despite being located in Alcudia, influenced the toponymy of the area.

 

Pollença has an important tourist attraction, that is why it is the Majorcan municipality containing more coastal kilometers. In addition, this town celebrates one of the best-known celebrations in Mallorca: La Patrona festival, which has the representation of the Moors and Christians' mockery as a highlight. A festival full of feelings, a reference point of the calendar of many pollencins.

 

Other great celebrations of the village of Pollença are the festes of Sant Antoni, Easter time with the spectacular Davallament and the Corpus Christi with the procession of the Eagles and San Juan Pelós and the Verge del Carmen and Sant Pere festivals in the Port of Pollença. The traditional fair of Pollença is celebrated in November and during the last years, the town has gained some more popularity with the celebration of the Wine Fair.

 

Pollença's weekly market is celebrated on Sunday morning in the streets of the center and the one of the Port of Pollença is celebrated on Wednesday.
