The Roman City of Pollentia was founded in 123BC by the consul Quintus Caecilius Metellus. Its location between the Bays of Pollensa and Alcúdia gave it strategic importance and led to it becoming a thriving urban hub spreading across 15 – 20 hectares. The remains of La Portella residential area, a Forum, and Theatre are open to the public.
The historical town Alcúdia is considered one of the most beautiful on Mallorca with lots of shops, bars, restaurants and boutique hotels. […] Alcúdia
The three archaeological sites are situated just outside of Alcúdia’s town walls. At La Portella it’s possible to see the layout of three noble homes. Leading on from this is the Forum with remains of the Capitolino Temple dedicated to Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. The theatre is an 800 metre walk from these first sites and conserves part of the seats, orchestra and stage.
A visit to the Roman City of Pollentia includes entrance to the Museu Monogràfic de Pollentia, located on calle Jaume in Alcúdia old town. The 14th century museum building was once a hospital. Inside, its exhibitions shed light on the public and private lives of the citizens of Pollentia with displays of artifacts recovered from the archaeological sites.
