Desbrull Tower

The Desbrull Tower is a must for history lovers. It stands out among the essential monuments to visit in Pollensa. Although it is simply a tower, its history and surroundings make it a place of great interest.

The property that hosts the gardens was given to the city by one of the most influential families in Mallorca, the March family, in honour of their first-born son Joan March Servera. In 1980, the Town Hall built a park and botanical garden in this area, where the Desbrull Tower is located. This medieval tower in Gothic style belonged to another prominent family of the time, the Desbrull family, from which it took its name.

Visiting the tower will allow you to immerse yourself in Pollensa’s medieval past and appreciate both the architecture and the historical elements that surround it. You will also be able to enjoy the beauty of the gardens and the native vegetation that surrounds them.

Pont Romà

Although its name suggests a Roman origin, the enigma surrounding the Pont Romà of Pollença persists to this day. While some believe that this stone structure was part of an ancient aqueduct that carried water to Pollentia during Roman times, many historians doubt this theory and suggest that the Roman Bridge was built after that period. Despite the uncertainties about its origin, one thing is certain: the Roman Bridge is an essential place to visit in Pollensa.

Getting to the Roman Bridge is easy by car, as it is located on the outskirts of Pollença and is very easy to park. When you arrive, you will find a stone structure that has stood the test of time and tells an enigmatic story.

The views and the setting of the Roman Bridge are like nowhere else. Contemplate the waters that flow underneath and let yourself be captivated by the tranquillity of the surroundings.

In this area, you can immerse yourself in history and delve into the caves that form part of this ancient cemetery. Admire the fascinating chambers and vaults, carved by human hands centuries ago. This experience will transport you to a remote past and allow you to admire up close the historical legacy that can be found in every corner of this place.
