El Calvari not only offers superb views of Pollensa, it is also one of the town’s most iconic locations thanks to its impressive stairway. It consists of 365 steps, one for each day of the year, and is flanked by cyprees trees and fourteen three metre-high cross, evoking the ordeal that Jesus Christ suffered on the way to his crucifixion on Mount Golgotha. In memory of this event, on Good Friday the Calvari steps are the setting for the so-called ´Davallament` (removal from the cross), one of the most important events of Mallorca’s celebrations.
Pont Romà (Roman bridge)
The origin of this Stone bridge is a mystery in the town of Pollensa, because since the nineteeth century it has been called the ´Pont Roma`, although its existence wasn’t recorded until1403, some people believe it was part of an aqueduct to the former town of Pollentia (now Alcudia) built by the Romans, who were present in Mallorca between 123 BC and 425 AD. The fact that Pollensa wasn't recorded in its curret location until XIII century leads other historians to date this construction of this bridge to medieval times. Roman or not, this bridge has been crucial for Pollensa inhabitants, because until the nineteenth century it was the only safe way to cross the Torrente de Sant Jordi during high water.
