Default Can anyone help me....

Hello we have recently returned from a lovely holiday in Majorca. While there we visited Pollensa and climbed the 364 steps to the medievil Knights Headquarters "Esglesia Del Calyari". My son has decided to do a school project on this but have been unable to find out any information, can anyone help me.........

Hi LisaAllen

Don't know if its a spelling mistake but I notice that you have spelled Calvari with a 'Y'. But if you google 'Esglesia Del Calvari' you should find some info. You could also try wikipedia. Good luck.

It is important to realise that the steps were extended and I think there are now 413 steps, this only happened about ...... well it seems like yesterday but probably 7/8 years ago.... The calvario is the centre of the Davallment procession at Easter which has now been recognised as having international cultural interest. GOOD LUCK WITH THE PROJECT.
