When you come to Majorca for a fabulous getaway, you may want to take the opportunity to explore the island’s fascinating past. If you happen to be staying at Club MAC Alcudia, you can take a guided tour of Pollentia, a unique Roman ruin, for a price your bank balance is sure to love.

Historic island

Here at Club MAC Alcudia, we consider ourselves extremely lucky. We just so happen to be based a stone’s throw away from the port town of Alcudia, which lies on Majorca’s north-eastern edge. The area around Alcudia has been inhabited as far back as Roman times, so it has a wide range of great historical site for you to visit.

There are a number of attractions within Alcudia’s historic old town for you to experience. Buildings such as the C’an Torro Library, the Town Hall, the Porta Del Moll city wall gates and the Church of Sant Jaume allow you to glimpse the town’s history from the medieval era to modern times.

Visit Pollentia

If you want to go back a little further in the area’s timeline, however, you may want to check out the ruins of the Roman city of Pollentia. Based just a short distance from Alcudia’s historic centre, Pollentia is so well preserved that it’s one of the most important archaeological sites in the Balearic Islands!

When you reach Pollentia, there are a range visitable areas for you to see. You can explore everyday roman life by checking out the town’s residential district of Sa Portella or the Forum. You can learn more about Roman spiritual life by heading to the Capitoline Temple or acquaint yourself with popular entertainment of the period by visiting the Roman Theatre. There’s just so much to see!
