Monuments | Alcúdia

Pol·lèntia is the only Roman city that can presently be visited in Mallorca. It is also the best example of the Romanisation of the Balearic Islands, its ruins telling us of the pax romana times. Excavation work in Pol·lèntia began around 1920 and continues to this day. The part that is open to the public includes a small fragment of the wall, the ruins of three mansions and a street with an arcade. The area can be accessed via Sa Portella. Also worth a mention is its Roman theatre, the only still preserved in the Balearic Islands. It was built in the 1st Century and had a seating capacity of almost two thousand persons. Today a portion of the tiers and the stage can still be appreciated. An interesting complement to the visit is a trip to the Museu Monogràfic de Pol·lèntia, (Monographic Museum of Pol·lèntia) where valuable pieces found during the excavation works are on display.
