Mallorca – Index and Slideshows

1706view1

We’ve had a few trips to Mallorca, so here’s an attempt to summarise them and provide links. ‘BR’ = bike ride.

There are still two slideshows and one entire trip to add to this catalogue, which is principally for the benefit of those who came along with us, but at least this year’s entries are up to date!

The Ascent of El Calvari


The Pixies counted 408 steps up Pollença's Via Crucis (pictured), a carved stone stairway lined by ancient cypress trees which ascends El Calvari (Calvary Hill) to the north of the town centre.

At the top some religious art from the Neanderthal Period surrounds a much revered C13 statue of Mare de Deu del Peu de la Creu (Mother of God at the Foot of the Cross) in a simple, courtyarded chapel.

Lunch at La Scalinata restaurant back down in one of the main squares seemed to take up most of the rest of the day...

The BBQ is warming up for a long evening.

The ascent data for this week's trip, if you hadn't noticed, has gone from 300 metres on day 1, to 200 metres on day 2, to about 100 metres today. Snorkeling equipment has been laid out by one member of the party in anticipation of the continuing trend.
