Pollença is located at the north- west of Majorca. Its harbour is very little but shelters many boats and yachts during summer. As being a very small village, all the people know each other. The enchanting villagers are rivals in way, the ones in the centre against people who live on the coast.

It has two important celebrations:

- “Los moros y cristianos” which remind us when King James I fought to conquer the moorish village. It is celebrated on the first weekend of August.

- “El pi de Formentor” is celebrated in winter. It is like a little adventure for the young people. First of all, it takes place in Cap de Formentor. From there, people cut a pine tree and take it from there to the city centre with ropes surrounding it. It is pushed and pulled by all those who participle in.
