Almallutx, an archaeological treasure in Mallorca
In 2011, a group of young archaeologists discovered in the Tramuntana an Islamic site of more than 120.000 m². The research performed is demonstrating the importance of the settlement as a core of the Islamic resistance throughout the conquest of Mallorca (1229-1232).
The location of this exceptional site under the water of the Gorg Blau reservoir has seriously endangered the preservation of a large part of the archaeological remains. This project proposes a number of strategies for recovery, study and preservation of such evidences. Its analysis, protection and highlighting are essential tasks for scientific, social, cultural and touristic development of the island.
On April 18 as from 8:30pm is the opening of a small exhibition in the laboratory for those who want to learn more about the discoveries of the first 2 years of work at the site of Almallutx. The exhibition will be at 'Can Xoroi', Carrer Font 8 in Fornalutx.
You can also visit the days 19, 20 and 21 April from 9:30am to 1:30pm.
