Puerto Pollensa

History & Culture of Puerto Pollensa

Argentinian artist Atilio Boveri lived here and the painter Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa; while the poet Ruben Dario and novelist Agatha Christie were frequent visitors, with Christie regularly staying in the Pine Walk area.

To the west of Placa Miguel Capllonch youโ€™ll find the Church of Our Lady of Carmen which is well worth a visit. Religion is a key ingredient of Puerto Pollensaโ€™s two fiestas in June and July.

At the end of June the town celebrates the patron saint of fishermen with the Sant Pere Fiesta, which includes a church service of thanksgiving, processions, music, entertainment for children, a market and restaurants serving local seafood.

In mid-July the Fiesta de la Verge del Carme honours the patron saint of seafarers. It lasts for eight days, culminating on the Sunday closest to July 16 with a mass in the evening and processions โ€“ and a spectacular firework finale on the beach at La Gola.
