Municipality information Pollença

The municipality of Pollença is situated in the north of Majorca. The origin of the name is supposed to come from Pol.lentia (Roman city) –the Latin word polent, “powerful”-, founded by Quinto Cecilio Metelo in 123 BC after conquering Majorca. 

Its landscape is characterized by high mountains, flat valleys, irrigated by torrents, the last linear 26 kilometres of the Serra de Tramuntana (Puig de Ca de Miner, 887 metres high, with a lot of underground cavities), the flat area (Albufereta, important wetland) and an enormous coastal area (it is the majorcan municipality with the most extensive coast; spectacular cliffs, headlands, small islands, the closed bay of Pollença and white sandy beaches). 

In 1550 it suffered the violent attack of the pirate Dragut and 1500 Saracene pirates. The local milicy lead by the resident Joan Mas, rejected him, because the captain escaped. This fact is commemorated every year on the 2nd of August in a Moor-Christian mock battle. Between the end of the 19th century and the middle of the 20th century Pollença suffered a migration toward South America, whereas in the seventies it was inverted because of the touristic boom and the construction, replacing the traditional mountain economy. 

The cultural variety includes Coves de Sant Vicenç, Roman bridge, Església de Nostra Senyora dels Àngels, Oratori de Roser Vell, Convent de Sant Domingo, Escalonada del Calvari, Puig de Santa Maria (Bien de Interés Cultural and Àrea Natural d’Especial Interès –ANEI), Castell del Rei, possessions (rural fincas) of Son Marc, Formentor and Ternelles (ANEI and Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves), Talaia d’Albercuix. 
The municipality has 17 beaches.
