PONT ROMA (ROMAN BRIDGE)
Categories: Chapels, Vantage Points, Monuments
Pont Roma, is perhaps one of the most well preserved evidences of Roman dominance on Mallorca that you can explore.
Back in 123 BC, the Roman army led by consul and general, Quintus Caecilius Metellus, took over Mallorca after years of fighting the Punic Wars (264 – 146 BC).
The Romans established the town of Pollentia, which was declared capital of Mallorca. (The remains of Pollentia can be visited in Alcúdia)!
The Roman brigde here, was the only way to cross the river, which at that time was much wider.
