Miro, mountains and monasteries on magical Mallorca
We have chosen Pollenca, in the far north of the island, as our base for a painting holiday thanks to its rich artistic heritage as a popular destination for painters from the beginning of the century. This part of the island has so many wonderful painting subjects - honey coloured buildings, pretty church squares, deep valleys, turquoise waters in rock-ringed bays.

Capture the deep green of the sweet smelling pine trees, almond and olive groves and a magnificent monastery amidst the majestic mountains of the Tramuntana. The area is so rich in painting potential that we’ve put two weeks together for those with extra free time.

A typical itinerary on this painting holiday in Mallorca, Spain

Arrival day

Leaving Palma we arrive in Pollenca in time to explore this pretty village before dinner. Your painting tutor will give an informal introduction and painting plan for the days ahead over a delicious meal made with local produce.

Around Old Pollenca

A great day around this lovely market town. Squares, narrow streets, honey-coloured buildings and a beautiful Roman bridge all with a mountain backdrop.

Looking at lluc

High in the Tramuntana mountains lies the Monastery of Lluc. These magnificent buildings are surrounded by spectacular mountain peaks, and by way of contrast there is a delightful botanical garden. Subjects range from the majestic to the intimate.

Cala san Vincente

One of the smallest tourist destinations on the coast, this is essentially still a fishing village. You may have to share one of the three beaches with the local fishermen, hauling in their nets. There is plenty to sketch and paint, including the lovely views towards the cliffs of the Formentor peninsula.

Free day

Relax around our hotel or take the bus to Palma – the charming capital of Mallorca with many museums, stylish shops and of course the magical Miro museum.

The hill villages

A short hop from our hotel we find the rural villages of Moscari and Campanet. In the villages and in the landscape between subjects abound – almond and olive groves, rushing streams, tiny churches village squares and mountain vistas and all with a sense of peace.

Cap de Formentor

A day spent in this spectacular place – a rugged and dramatic landscape at the northernmost point of Mallorca. Formentor lighthouse perches on the edge, once only accessed by sea or a long mule track. Sketch and paint the lighthouse, shimmering sea and rocky landscapes from many of the lookout points on the headland.

Departure day

We depart early for Palma airport.
