Since then, the monastery has been used to carry out various activities 25 years ago has become a cultural center where classical music concerts and performances, and also houses the Museum of Pollença.

Prehistory and Ancient History

The archaeological remains of pretalayotic (2000-1500 BC) are very abundant. There constructs navetiformes the Sierra Cornavaques, mouths and Formentor. Also very important burial funeral, standing on this point set of 12 caves in the Oak St. Vincent, dated between 1600 and 1300 a. C. The last important finding of Pollença pretalayotic occurred in 1989, is the possession of a cave can Martorellet (saw Cornavaques) containing an impressive collection of pottery and other objects, which were probably deposited on the occasion of rites funeral.

From 1300 a. C. pre-settlement began to be replaced by over Mallorca talaiots culture. Pollença find numerous examples of most representative monument of this period, the talayot: albeguins of the Puig, of Windmill (Almadrava) of Rock Mascord Can Eixartell, rotates the Great High Can Sail , Can Sail Small Fartaritx of the Corner, the Vilaret of Llenaira ... They are also very important, although totally devastated, walled villages that were happening in time to primitive talaiots: Can Daniel Gran with their 15,300 m2 of area "urban" is one of the largest of Mallorca, which began to be about 1,000 to habitat. C. However, nowadays almost can not distinguish any construction, including talaiots were 3 circular and two runs embedded within the walls that were part of their defense. The other set to star in the settlement is the town of Pollensa mouths, but there are still fewer remains. Only the name is preserved in the present possession of two mouths and tabular patronatus Roman. Regarding the cultural note at end of period an increasing process of acculturation, especially for the presence of elements from other Mediterranean cultures, such as the bull cult. In this respect we mention the discovery of the End of Bulls (can Tirana), which is the remains of a wooden horse that served coffin dated to about 300. C. This finding and its reconstruction can be seen in the Museum of Pollença.

To 123 BC. C. Rome at the hands of Quintus Caecilius Metellus conquered the island and then founded the city of Pol.lentia. This name, especially during future appoint not only the city itself, but also the rural areas, ie, existing municipalities = Alcudia, Pollensa and the mountains of Escorca. The interference of the city with the indigenous world must have been very important from a very quick, but do not know how much. If it is true that 10 a. C. Bóccoris was federated with Rome and required a protective d = Roman, but after 16 years (6 d.) Was sought another representing "Urbs" probably because the former had failed to halt the decline. The city was also mentioned by Pliny, and is commonly believed to be located in Pedret mouths, although they could represent a much more dispersed habitat, embracing what is now Puerto Pollensa and to Llenaira Gotmar. The remains visible today are virtually nonexistent, although s = no archaeological campaign has made in this regard. Another of the Romanization of the region is the existence of a village = metalAlúrgics Formentor, the discovery of coins in rural areas, mostly dating from the second century. C. and the presence of the Latin names are still very much alive, as are the Colonya Formentor and Santuïri, among others.

Byzantine and Islamic

The Pol.lentia 425 was destroyed by vandals. Hypothetically noted that many of the inhabitants of the city were established in the interior in order to remain more protected, but not any fundasin town. In fact, today it is almost certain that the city did not Pol.lentia finir by the onslaught of the barbarians, but continued throughout the Byzantine period and almost all Muslim, quite possibly as the only town of the region until, finally, ended sometime in the twelfth century. Thus, the birth town of Pollensa as would the next century.

During the Islamic era the people living in the district-Juz-Bulânsa did so scattered with small villages of a clan that operated the farmhouses and sheds for farming. In one of these, now known as Son Crane was a tombstone that is kept in the Museum of Mallorca, dated to 517 AH (1123-4 C. d). In fact, it is written the name of the first known Pollensa: Abi Zaynab hint alHakam. The Muslims also built waterwheels and qanats to maximize the water resources vital to its agriculture-based Regius. Some of these qanats can be seen today, such as Llinars and major existing hydraulic systems were Ternelles, the Garden of Cubelles torrent Almadrava (irrigation) and Llinars.

Catalan conquest-Christian

In 1229 the army of James I joined the island to the orbit of the Christian world, and Catalan culture. All indications are that is born at that moment when the town of Pollensa.
Muslim lands Bulânsa district that included the current Pollensa, Alcudia and Escorca part, they remain in the royal portion. But soon the King ceded much of this area, which roughly corresponds to the present town of Pollensa, the Templars, the Knights Dartusa (Tortosa), the bishop of Mallorca and other males. Lords will direct most of the land and future housing, but also yielded many useful domain emfiteutes. However, in a few years the Templars would acquire almost all of the properties of feudal control out of Pollensa, which meant a great economic power (perception of income), but also legal (grouper and mixed empire) and religious (Bishop Ramon Torrella gave to the Church). The Temple Mount, now Calvary was erected as a symbol of this domain as d = s = Install the gallows high.

While the Templars strengthen his power grew demographically Pollença and the fledgling town was formed, first with narrow and curved, then more straight. In 1236 there were already recognized and in 1248 the parish Bulla of Pope Innocent IV recognizes. At the end of the century was one of the most important towns of the foreign and begin to show signs of emerging municipal organization, part of the royal manor existing institutions (Batlius). Logically, as the town went growing confrontation with the Templars came from the village also increasing, as they did not respect the liberties granted by James I.

In 1314 the property and privileges of the Templars to Hospitallers go to Pollença. At this time we are also seeing an offensive power of the King, who wants to recover, through its Mayor, courtesy of the jurisdiction. So frequent lawsuits over the years, finally prevailing crown. However, the Hospitallers followed receiving income from their land and the mayor continue retaining the floor between his emfiteutes justice.

Until the next few years the Black Death (1348) was a period of expansion, both economic and population. Examples of this is premature confirmation regarding the foreign part, a municipal structure itself. In 1330 the University of Pollensa is fully formed, with a council of notables and 4 juries. In addition, the town from the outset will be considered among the biggest on the island and thus will have the right to two representatives in the Union outside. It seems that until 1348 did not stop the resettlement, mostly starring Catalans, but neither slaves lack Saracens at the time. So the fire reached the 631 1329, which could mean little more than 3,000 inhabitants.

Plague severely affected Pollensa and further aggravated the crisis was already evident by other factors, such as bad harvests. In this context there was the dynastic clash between James III and Peter ceremonious, partly manifested in these areas. For the sake of the shelter of the troops of James II Castle Pollença and the King, the fortress was besieged in 1343 and was subsequently looted the town as it seems that Pollença were supporters of King James.

Probably because of the hardships of those years, the bishop gave permission Berenguer Mayor Sworn to the university to build in Puig de Pollença a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Mercy. This was the origin of what would become an important monastery of nuns closed. They were also the years in which men Pollensa collaborate in the construction of the walls of Alcudia.

But Pollensa, Mallorca and still had not recovered fully from the Middle Ages crisis, aggravated by conflicts between farmers and citizens. So I broke foreign Revolt in 1391 and 1450 began the great uprising outside. In the latter Pollença they have a large presence there. For example, in the second siege of fifty Town participated and the same year built a galley to Puerto sea to intercept communications of citizens. In addition, after the defeat of outsiders in 1452, the leader of these, Peter Mascaro, continued fighting in the hills of Pollença in 1453, when this Pollensa and 24 more were hanged in the city.

All these facts, far from recovering the town, further increasing Pollensa crisis and could not reach even the levels before the Black Plague.

The incorporation Hispanic Corona

The general census of militias was in 1515 gave a considerable amount of fighting men in total were 647. This meant a recovery in the population compared to previous censuses, but persistence to the realm of social and economic problems not solved with previous revolts led to the slang of Mallorca, Pollensa where there have returned to a very important . In June 1521 the City adheres to local unions and soon erected in the town center of operations against Alcudia only place that remained in the hands of gentlemen and others mascarats. However, as in previous occasions, the rebels were defeated, although in the case of Germany, the repression was more bloody than in the past. On October 29, the imperial troops of Charles I, after overcoming a encarnisada defense of the town, set fire to the church where they had sought refuge in 200 women and children. So this date would be known as the year of the damage.

The feats did not end there. In that century, as the above, the risk of pirate attacks was constant. So on June 21, the University asked permission to build the chapel of St. George, at the point of exit of the town, on the road that led to the Port where there are indeed men of weapons to fight the enemy. There were guards permanently (watchtowers and listening) hidden in the hills and the shore to watch the high points. Nothing could be avoided, however, that on the night of May 30 to 31 pirate attack occurs most important in the history of Pollença. The famous Moors landed in 1500 with Romany (Bay of Pollensa), led by a renegade Pollensa headed to sack the entire village and kidnap their inhabitants. But the fate willed that the pirates do not attack planificassin well, which gave time to Joan Mas, in the absence of the captain who had left his post, to organize the defense = the local militia. Not without serious losses, the invaders were expelled. However, it was also a sad day remembered for many years, and is therefore named the day of misfortune. This attack, which is commemorated in the mock Muslims and Christians on August 2.

In the sixteenth century the Dominicans settled in Pollensa, close to the Church of the Rosary-old (1578) and then to the convent that had been built, which will end the church in 1616. This did not occur without the obvious tension with the local clergy, who saw some competitors, especially regarding the issue of leave and alms, the Dominicans. Later, there arose also these other rivals, since 1688 the Jesuits established the street from the garden and the chapel of St. George. Ended in 1738 the church of Monti-Sion in 1745 and the imposing home of Son Brull, who was also owned.

During all the years in which they performed these great buildings, there are some signs of socio-economic recovery. So there has been a population increase to over 4000 inhabitants in the late sixteenth century. It can also be argued that one of the first towns where trades are implemented, evidence of the great importance that had non-agricultural activities. Thus, in 1596 became independent guilds for and the Weavers of the City, while in 1653 it made of wood.

These data are combined with bad harvests and droughts, as well as the persistence of privateering, while the seventeenth century it was only present in small squads to attack the possessions of the coast. The phenomenon was also very insistent exiled during the same century, causing the visit of the authorities to pursue them. Between 1601 and 1683, 85 people were killed.

In the last century of the modern era were major political events. The most important were the War of Succession, where Pollença mostly supported the pretender to the house of Austria, and later Nueva Planta Decrees 1715. That same year, the State abandoned the castle of the King, who had long served to only vantage point. The other notable event of the century was the expulsion of the Jesuits on 3 April 1767. During those years back serious epidemics such as that of 1744-52 reducing the population to the 3,600 inhabitants. Then, late in the second half of the century, begin a continuous and sustained population increase, thus entering Pollensa demographic modernization.

The contemporary period.

On 22 August 1812 the council Pollensa swore the Constitution of Cadiz. Although a future full of reactions, inaugurated the Constitutional period. Until the 60's were years of growth without major crises and a dramatic increase in population. Was reached in 1854 for the first time in the history of the 6,584 people who exceed the 7,000 three years later. This increase, as clearly visible in the early century, resulted in some important works: Mr. Desbrull granted flowing water source for, Strait Ternelles, s = d = started building an aqueduct to bring water to the town. In 1826 came the water and build up the urban perimeter Lion washer, then through the town of some part. In 1827 arose the legendary source of almsgiving or turkey and 2 years later it was the turn of the market. In 1829, the church began in the annex of St. George, which is first an orphanage and then, in 1849, the nuns' residence charity.

One of the important features of the century was the construction of an early spring in the Bay of Pollensa in 1830. In 1860 he built a new road linking the town to the port, 3 years later and opened the Formentor lighthouse on 5 January 1865 was enabled dock, customs and class to dispose of 40 products export. The population growth in the town and increased fishing activity during the nineteenth century, led to the gradual installation in Puerto Pollensa. In 1868 they were only two families, but at the end of the century can already speak of a small village fully consolidated.

The nineteenth century was also the ecclesiastical and municipal confiscations. During the biennium progressive Convent, St. George Montesión and become the property of the City. The common Santuïri that the Hospitallers had been bought by the University in 1704, in 1880 they moved the cemetery, which since 1823 was in the field in Costa. Emphasizes its portal designed by architect Joaquín Pavia Birmingham.

The village was subject to major urban transformations: it became the current square, taking part of the old cemetery inside, also opened new streets in the Old Town and planned extensions, such as the area of ​​the field Fields of in the first streets already established at the end of the century, while the rest will not end until well into building the 20's and 30's century. Also change the urban landscape with stately homes being built throughout the century: can coast back to the high street, can Llobera Plaza, Aulí Can, Can Franc ... These large houses that contrast with the rest, gentlemen demonstrate the persistence of people hand-old Major, who own most of the possessions that were still dominating the town economically and socially.

We are on a time entry will mostly constitutional electoral game. This will make possible a new dimension to local politics, in which more modest classes at the end of the century, could aspire to politics. During the six years, 1868-1874, democracy men will for the first time a City (1872) is formed and no sir, are an innovative way, it launched a major anti-clerical policy. But it was all an illusion, because in 1875 they "restored" but not one hundred percent, the old situation and the elders returned directly or indirectly to dominate each council. In this context arises the figure of William encrypt Colonya, which gave a big boost to the company Pollensa end of the century. He and a large group of collaborators, in 1879 he founded the Institute of Teaching Pollença, a year after the Savings Pollensa (Colonya), a Mutual Aid Society and Cooperative. In politics, the Republican Party drove and tried to break the dynastic despotism that both liberals and conservatives had prevailed in the town. This move created a very important response of the latter and of the church, who founded new Catholic schools and the Agricultural Bank of Pollença in 1893.

Culturally, the end of eight hundred was unmatched. Stands the figure of Michael Costa Llobera, who dignify Catalan culture and became one of the quintessential poets of his time and of all time. But other illustrious Pollença'' s companion, the poet and playwright Ramon and stung camp, a poet Joan Guiraud, the painter Lorenzo Cerda, Michael Capllonch musician, historian Matthew Rotger Capllonch ... In addition, a number of local notables such as Antonio Martorell, Ramon Maria Cerda, gave a boost to the celebrations of the Employer, the simulation recovering from 1882 and photo taking or recovering illustrious sons.

In the economic field the century ended with a serious crisis which was very evident since 1888. The reasons were several: a recessionary situation of agriculture Mallorca, snow and excessive rains locally, livestock disease, industrial decline, predation by the State Attorney ... The economic crisis was a cause-not only-that drove the great emigration to Argentina, which began precisely in 1888, and significant transfers of property. The century ended with the defeat in the Spanish-American War, which took away the lives of many young people and many were separated from their land in the most productive years. However, note that the conflict left a local hero, is the infantry bugle Bartholomew encrypt Villanueva who won the cross of San Fernando for his deeds in January 1896.

First decades of the twentieth century

The twentieth century began with news and important continuities. Was the emergence of a new tourism primitive that caused the opening of a series of hotels: the pension "Cosmopolitan" Juma-and-now "we cry" in the town, in Cala San Vicente s' There can install the pension nest. In Puerto Pollensa, this tourism managed to consolidate fishing village, which in 1909 had its own church, while the next two decades were created Hotels Puerto, Sea and Sky, Bristol, Navy and Bellavista. All this culminated in 1929 with the opening of the Hotel Formentor property Adan Diehl.

Throughout this process was not oblivious to the establishment of Pollença group of painters who gave renown to the town and founded what has been called, not without controversy among scholars, l = Pollensa School of Painting. James Nightingale late nineteenth and Joaquim Mir in 1903 were the first, but then followed Anglada Camarasa Tito dwellers, Adan Diehl, Atilio Boveri, Sorolla, Roberto Montenegro, Tudela, Eugen Mosgraber De Creff, among others. The arrival of these people did not stop artists Pollença influence that reaches renown, cases of William and Dionysus Bestard Bennassar. Nor should we forget that in 1904 Michael Capllonch was already renowned musician and Lorenzo Cerda continued his work as an academic painter.

The early years of the century also characterized by the opening of modern factories. For example, in 1930, it created an industry dedicated to the realization of sandals and raffia products later. But even more important was the factory mats can Morato, which began its activities in 1922. Also, it should be noted that in 1907 Bartholomew Aloy Can Franc, founded the first factory of electricity out, arriving at the Port in 1916. There are also soft drinks industries, such as Damien Vicens Cerdà in 1912, in 1924 or sausage Forteza textile Martí Pons ...

But this state of affairs had failed to substantially alter the production system. Agriculture still occupied the majority of residents, and she continued to outline local power relations that had dominated in the past. Landlords continued to dominate local life, while increasing worker or peasant movement was more organized and mobilized. Continued associations founded by William de Colonya encrypt or its successors, as the Union of Agricultural Colonya also mentioned "positive", the Fraternal Shoemakers ... but others emerged more militant as the Circle Workers of socialist Stonemasons. There are also associations or fostered by the Catholic Church as the Catholic Worker Circle.

Continuing with the plan association, it must be said that the new century began with the creation in 1900 of the "Pollensa Cycling Club," which is said years later would lead to the current Club Pollença, in 1930 as the association takes current name, in fact, is the only one that still remains open = born before the war.

In the days of Mayor Joan Vives Rotger was remodeled Plaza created freedom where the old cemetery was inside and what was to become one of the most important urban Pollensa.

Second Republic, War and post-war.

During the Second Republic highlighted social tensions existing traditional sectors struggled not to lose any of the privileges they enjoyed and republican parties and groups emerged anarchist trend increasingly assertive. However, despotism and a conservative mentality prevalent, although it was very difficult for left politics could achieve electoral victory.

At this stage it became a major remodeling of Pollensa, which meant, among other things, that the water will get to each house. Also, the creation of the seaplane base at an early date in 1934 was very important for the new coastal village. In 1933 he created the Tourism Promotion Pollensa test launch of the online exploitation of this resource, remained stronger than ever. But in recent years a new event had great impact, it's smuggling, Formentor concept created in 1934 thanks to fraud made in the game of roulette. In associative level, there was a very fruitful and remain in the memory Solteros Club, and the same association Republican Club Pollença which brought together the conservatives. At the same time, social life was politicized, affecting the same mock Muslims and Christians, as the progressive forces considered too reactionary.

However, the outbreak of the Civil War ended almost everything had started so far. First, we must speak of a local crackdown on left, which resulted in at least 20 Pollensa shot while 103 were judged. In addition, there were clashes between members of the Board of Management and the rebels, and also between them and the military seaplane base that commanded by Captain Fernando Beneyto, they remained loyal to the Republic, causing deaths in both sides. Immediately quality tourism of 20 years and 30 Fine and agriculture met one last golden age. The industry suffered less than the tourism and forties now back to normal and can Siquier can Morato and approximately from 1945, Vicente Martí founded the German textile company Galleries Vincent. In the 50 other factories = esperdenyes, large and especially raffia, they re-bloom, reaching the highest industrial history of Pollença.

The development of 60 years.

During the 60's @ Aboom tourism meant a large increase in Pollensa hotel sector, but had little to do with that quality tourism d = before the war. At the same time also increases all industries related to construction, thanks to the rise in population and tourism infrastructure. As in Mallorca, the development of agriculture and industry and services, went into reverse. In the 60 closed can Morato and 1977 Siquier can do the same. And they almost all industries raffia, granite and export, which were gradually finint. Puerto Pollensa, however, knew the time of maximum expansion and urban population. While the world was disappearing peasantry.

All this change had other kinds of socio-cultural consequences, no less important. For the first time since 1888 he reversed the direction of migration, the left d = Pollencina go for the "Americas" and, conversely, a large number of immigrants settled in Andalusia. Relocated in Pollensa, first working mostly as farmers and then the masons and waitresses. Moreover, the City increased its municipal budget and time Bartholomew Siquier the Mayoralty, was given the start in 1962 festival of Classical Music and Painting Contest. The redevelopment of the former Faculty of Santo Domingo was vital for this. In fact, high culture had been present in Pollensa in 1959 when they performed at the famous Formentor poetic conversations and a year later created the Prize of the International novel.la Formentor. Almost at the same time, a much more modest, but also very popular, was created "Cultural Circle" to Puerto.

The 60 are the days when the festival of the patron saint, thanks to local initiatives, take a empemta. Verbena and emphasize the mock Moors and Christians. Pollensa groups are created as "The D'Ariant", which had its parallel in the "Orchestra Pollensa," and theater groups as "Youth and Art," which also started an important amateur film contest. At the end of the decade, came running water in every house of the village in 1972 and ended with a lag compared to the rest of Mallorca, the paved streets.
The 70's were full of continuity with regard to the economy, but not politics. From very soon began a local pretransició, which announced it would sell since 1975. In 1972, the group created "Growing" organized cultural events, some times as important as the first concerts of the new song and the first colonies = Summer. In fact, Club Pollença, abandoning its traditional rightist line, became the quintessential progressive local institution. However, in 1979 he won the first democratic elections UCD, although PCIB -4 -3 councilors, aldermen, and the PSOE, get good results. From the moment we speak of a continuation of economic development started in 1960, will have as a consequence significant elevation constant standard of living of Pollença, yet new problems arise, such as the ecological character of mass construction , = lack of water, or cultural, such as the low integration of immigrants and foreign colony.
