Discover Pollensa with Majorcabdriver

Pollensa, history and cultureThe municipality of Pollensa is located on the north side of Mallorca, contained within the Sierra deTramuntana, the largest and most important natural area in Mallorca.

The name Pollença sometimes leads people to confuse this town with the ancient Roman city of Pollentia (currently Alcudia), which is considered one of the oldest and most historically rich in the Spanish Mediterranean.

Being that it was an important Phoenician, Carthaginian, Greek, Roman and Muslim seaport, as well as the port of the former crown of Aragon.

The town of Pollença has an area of 151.65 square km (58.55 sq. mi.) and a population of 16,222 residents.The oldest signs of human occupation in Pollensa were left by the Talaiots, who arrived in this city more than3000 years ago.

However, the most well-known inhabitants were the Romans until Pollensa was attacked bythe Vandals, causing the destruction of the city and forcing the survivors to flee.

Then, the foundations of thecity were established by the Arabs, who built irrigation systems, allowing an agricultural boom. The Arabswere expulsed in 1229 by King James I, backed by thousands of knights.

During the first half of the 20th century, Pollença became a colony populated by artists, writers and musicians who discovered the beauty of the region.
