Puerto de Pollensa since November 30, 1993, has had a “Well of Cultural Interest”, on a small peninsula called Punta de Avanzada (1). They are buildings known as Fortaleza de Pollensa or Fortaleza de Albercutx, with the purpose of giving Pollensa military protection against pirate attacks. Built during the 16th century and used for defensive purposes until the 19th century, at the beginning of the 20th century its use was recovered to serve as a residence for artists visiting Pollensa. At the end of the peninsula there is a lighthouse built at the beginning of the 20th century. GPS position 39º 54,13’03 " N 3º 06.26' 94’’ E, 1,24 miles from our dock.
