Pollentia is an archaeological site in Alcudia, Majorca housing the remains of an Ancient Roman city.
It is thought that the Romans established Pollentia in either the first or second century BC and that the city was thriving by the second century AD.
Sadly, Pollentia has been the subject of significant looting over the centuries, but there are still several monuments to see. The most significant of these is Pollentia’s first century AD Roman Theatre. This is Spain’s smallest surviving Ancient Roman theatre and would have held around 2,000 spectators. It is still used for shows today.
Visitors can also make out the foundations of the forum of Pollentia including some temples and shops.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Pollentia is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past.
