Roman Relics in Pollentia

The history of Mallorca is shaped by five major influences over a time-span of some 3,500 years: the Talaiotic settlers (3,500 years ago), the conquering by the Romans (2,000 years ago), the influence under the Moorish settlers (1,100 years ago), the Reconquista under Jaume I (800 years ago), and finally, the peaceful influx of tourism (about 50 years ago and still going strong).

Those of you interested in remains of a vivid past on our island might want to visit the relics of Pollentia (shown here), on the outskirts of today’s Alcúdia, a Roman settlement dating back to 123 B. C., and well worth a visit. Admission fee is 2 €, including a visit to the Museu Monogràfic.

The photo was taken near Alcúdia, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: February 20th, 2008. The time was 12:28:31.
