Porto de Pollenca in People's Lives
Agatha Christie: I visited here in approximately 1923, and stayed at a hotel in the downtown Pine Walk area. I later wrote about this town in my short story The Problem at Pollensa Bay, in which I described it as "...a small hotel standing on the edge of the sea, looking out over a view that in the misty haze of a fine morning had the exquisite vagueness of a Japanese print."
Catrinel Menghia: I visited here in 2014.
Mario Vargas Llosa: I traveled here around 2012, and stayed in the Hotel Formentor.
