Here’s
a selection of some
hashtags
 that will
help you on this travel:

Pollensa
and Port de Pollensa

We start our route in
the pretty village of Pollensa where we can’t miss the most beautiful and
instagramable spots such as the main square and a walk up to the Calvari from
where to admire beautiful views of the village. If you fancy some extra walk,
do not miss the walk to the Puig de Maria situated in front of the village. It
is a short hard walk but well worth it for the views from up there. There is an
old chapel, a restaurant and the option to overnight in simple rooms.

Pollensa Old Town

Our next destination will be the resort of Puerto Pollensa. Located in the smallest bay of Mallorca, there are plenty of things to do there. You can spend a day relaxing and sunbathing by the beach, you can enjoy a boat trip to Formentor or a nice dinner in one of the sea front restaurants.

Puerto Pollensa
Song

Many times, when listening to a song we focus
on its beautiful melody, but without paying much attention to its lyrics. The
origin of many songs is marked by incredible stories, which upon knowing them
will surely make these songs have a different meaning for you from now on.

music

Marilina Ross was initially a very popular
actress in Argentina, but due to her closeness to Peronism in the 1970s she had
to go into exile in Spain. Already installed in the Iberian Peninsula, at the
age of 37 she travels preparing a show to Puerto Pollensa where she lives a
beautiful romance. She felt very much in love, so much so that she creates a
beautiful melody as a personal gift to her partner from that time, to whom she gave
it on a cassette.



Later on, she performs this song at a meeting in which Sandra Mihanovich was also present, who upon hearing the song, is delighted and asks her to record it. At first, she did not want to, but finally she accepted. Thanks to the authorship of Marilina and Sandra’s Interpretation “Puerto Pollensa” transcends, transforming into a great love hymn. Puerto Pollensa tells the story of those lovers who manage to overcome fears and prejudices to finally be together. It was for this reason that this theme also became a hymn for sexual minorities.

Alcudia
and Port de Alcudia

We are now taking the
road that connects Port de Pollensa to Alcudia that runs parallel to the beach.
This road was build in order to connect Port Pollensa with Alcudia, and it
rewards us with fantastic views of the bay with the Formentor and La Victoria
Peninsula. You will probably spot some kite surfers, as during the afternoon is
a very popular bay for kite surfing.

The old walls of Alcudia old town will welcome you to this beautiful town that has been selected in 2020 as one of the most beautiful villages of Spain. In Alcudia we recommend you to walk on the top of the old walls, to visit the church, the Roman ruins of Pollentia (old name of Alcudia during the Roman epoch) and to enjoy a drink at one of the squares. Don’t forget every Tuesday and Sunday, we have the local market. It is for sure one of experts top recommendations on this instagram hashtags virtual tour.

The historicist building La Sala is the work of the architect Carles Garau and was finished in 1929. It stands near the Plaça de la Constitució between Carrer de la Cisterna, which owes its name to the public water tank that was built there at the same time as the medieval walls to ensure the supply of drinking water to the town, the Plaça de les Verdures and Carrer Major, in which it has its main façade.🏫 – Discover the full story with our audio guide!📱 – – – El edificio historicista de la Sala, terminado en 1929, es obra del arquitecto Carlos Garau.

Port de Alcudia is about 3 kilometers far away from Alcudia old town. It is one of the most popular family resorts in Mallorca. The beach is wide, with soft sand and plenty of facilities for all. From the Port you can travel by ferry to the island of Menorca or to Barcelona on the mainland. A must is a boat trip. And if you fancy something different, try the dolphin watching boat trip combined with the sunrise. It is a memorable experience.

A miracle in
Alcudia

Alcúdia
celebrates its festivities of Sant Jaume in July. There is always a program with
many activities such as music concerts, festivals, art exhibitions, theater and
sports activities. Every 3 years, there is also the triennial procession of
Santo Cristo / Saint Christ.

The devotion to the Sant
Cristo has its origin in a first miracle attributed to Sant Crist, which was
certified at that time by the notary of the town, Francesc Aixartell, who
related how the residents of Alcúdia decided to carry the Christian image to
the Sant Martí cave to implore for rains. Back in Alcúdia the image began to
sweat water and blood, according to tradition, and that year the rains were
copious.

Church in Alcudia

There is always a mass, and once the mass is over, the procession will begin, which will go through the main streets of the center of Alcúdia with the presence of many tourists and locals who do not miss any detail of the religious march.

Playa
de Muro

Half way between
Alcudia and Can Picafort, we find the resort of Playa de Muro. It is a resort
with all the facilities for the holiday makers coming to this part of the
island, and with great connections to other resorts and villages. It is a
fabulous location for a family holiday thanks to the wide range of
child-friendly facilities, beautiful beaches, and a good number of nearby
activities and attractions. The highlight is its beach with crystal waters and soft
white sand. And for nature lovers, we recommend you to visit the Albufera
Nature Park.

Albufera: el Puente
de los ingleses

Puente de los ingleses
means the bridge of the British! And it has no relation to the holidaymakers
visiting Mallorca. This bridge is by the entrance to the Albufera nature park. This
vast extension of land was a humid area previously. In 1862 the New Majorca
Land Company –directed by the British engineer Frederic Bateman– assumed the
drying out.

The drying out
involved the construction of most of the current infrastructures: more than 40
kilometers of roads, eleven bridges, a 300-meter maritime dock and the Grand
Canal –which carried water from the two streams that supplied the Albufera– to
the sea. 60 meters wide and 2,500 long.

In November 1870 the works came to an end and a year later, the Ministry of Development granted the New Majorca Land Company the ownership of the desiccated lands. An extension of more than 2,000 hectares and it seemed to have been a success, but things soon changed. The lands of S’Albufera were below sea level and that is why they were flooded with salt water that forced injecting more fresh water, so the variations in the sea could not be controlled.

New water leaks and salinization problems reduced the land available for cultivation to 400 hectares. The project reduced the risk of flooding and sanitized the area of disease but however failed from a business point of view. The cultivation area was not enough to make profitable the 17.5 million pesetas that according to C. Picornell and A. Ginard were invested in drying. The company went bankrupt and the “Puente de los ingleses” is a remain of that big project.

Can
Picafort

Can Picafort is the last stop on this instagram hashtags virtual travel route, however also very important. It has a beautiful one kilometer of white sand beach that’s packed with parasols and loungers. If you want to get away from the crowds, opt for Son Baulo. And if you like nature and walking, we certainly recommend you to go to Son Real following the beach coast. In addition a great option is to rent a bike to explore the inland area and to visit the village of Muro or Santa Margalida.

Curious statues

A corner of the beach of Son Bauló, right at the edge of the sea outdoors, you will find some outstanding sculptures by the artist from Pollença Joan Bennasar. They are not the only ones, as there are other points with his sculptures in Can Picafort. This is an exhibition called “Ports of seawood”, which places more than 20 sculptures from the artist.

Sculptures in Can Picafort Mallorca

The statues are made of concrete. They are mostly women from 1,5-3 meters, and are distributed among 4 groups (the Desire, the Ritual, Treasures and The Wound). Some info here.
