Description

The walled town.

The walls mark the perimeter of the oldest part of the town.

The old walls of the town, built in the 16th century to protect it from the attacks of the Turks, took forty years to build. The walled enclosure is in the shape of a heptagon and a defensive bastion juts out at each angle. Diverse accesses to the enclosure exist, with the Portal de Ses Taules being the most important. Other important gateways are the Portal Nou, the Portella de Sella and the Portal de Soto es Fosc. The walls enclose an important historic legacy in its interior which has been declared a World Heritage Site.
