Beautiful streets with ancient paving, a lovely main square and stunning views to the surrounding landscape form a picturesque ensemble. Bellmon Real Estate Agency offers a large choice of comfortable holiday villas to rent in Pollensa. We are sure that you will find in this little town everything you are looking for in a relaxing holiday under the warm Mallorcan sun.
Pollensa is located at the eastern end of the Serra de Tramuntana. Unlike other Mallorcan towns, Pollensa has been able to save his traditional, rural atmosphere.

But, don’t be afraid, the beach is not far away. The beautiful beach in Puerto Pollensa, the town’s little charming port, is only some kilometres away.
A highly romantic composition of streets, squares and churches
Take your time and wander around the picturesque city centre with its narrow streets and quiet squares, soak up the peaceful atmosphere and relax. Sit in one of the small cafés on the romantic main square Plaça Major and enjoy the lovely view to the 18th century church Nostra Senyora Del Angels.
The other main church in Pollensa ist the 16th century Convent de Sant Domingo, a baroque cloister with four portico corners. The Museum of Pollensa is located here. Fans of ancient and modern culture will find many interesting exhibits there, such as a Tibetan sand painting given by the Dalai Lama in 1990.
The calvari steps and the Roman bridge
