Son Brull is situated just 3km (a 7-minute drive) from Pollensa, in the north of Mallorca. A rich history of Moorish invasions, Roman conquests and Christian rule have left their mark on this charming town and a visit here is a highlight of any stay at Son Brull luxury boutique hotel. The Roman Bridge is among Pollensa’s most interesting landmarks, a memory of an ancient civilization that once inhabited this picturesque town by the valley.
Christianity was later embedded into Mallorcan culture with the arrival of the Jesuits who built many churches, among them Pollensa’s beautiful baroque Monti Sion church. Today, most of Pollensa’s activity is focused around the buzzing Plaza Major. Lined with cafes and the setting of a local Sunday market, it’s the perfect place to sit back with an aperitif on a summer’s afternoon and watch the world go by.
Along Pollensa’s narrow cobblestoned streets are honey-coloured stone buildings housing boutiques, galleries and crafts shops, giving the town a distinctive artistic feel. Formentor beach is just 7km from Pollensa and is one of Mallorca’s most beautiful; a long stretch of sand with a backdrop of pine trees, the beach has restaurants, bars, watersports and lifeguards on duty.
