In the 1960’s tourists from all over the world come to this place and since then it has become a great attraction. However, the tools and pottery that were discovered there show that the island was inhabited 1000 BC. We can find there many ruins like those in Ses Salines and Ses Paisses de Arta. The Romans were those who built roads and towns there and they input Christianity. The location of Mallorca is really good and it helped trade to develop and increase. Even in those hard times when its capital, Pollentia was destroyed and the country was under Muslim rule, Mallorca succeeded in developing of its trade. Later, despite the destruction of many buildings, it proceeded growing up. In the 16th century there appeared huge crisis and many people died due to the plague.
