Who are we?
We are part of the Church of England´s Chaplaincy for Mallorca, at St. Andrew´s. We are situated in the north of Mallorca, in the pretty seaside resort of Puerto Pollensa. Formally a fishing village but now an established family friendly resort with a marina that now harbours leisure boats more than fishing boats. In the marina and out on the bay you can see still see the traditional ‘llauts’ used by the Mallorquins for fishing.
