2. The Roman pit

 

Under the houses and streets of the center of the town, in the lot where the town hall is placed nowadays, we  can find the  remains of a dormer Roman camp. Nowadays, we can only see two tambours of columns, which have been used for years as  stool; and a fragment of the pit. The archaelogist Bernat Roig and the geographer Nadal Burguera will show the to us

 

Under the subsoil of the urban core of Ses Salines, in the zone of Plaza Mayor we can find remains of a Roman pit. It is the only Roman pit documented in Baleares nowadays. Currently, we don't know 100% for sure its perimeter. The pit has the shape of a reversed triangle, and in the sections that are revealed, its measures are 3'20 of width and 3'50 m of depth, without big variants. Inside this perimeter, it has been found tambours of columns, a pondus, a sword and other remains; and around it, some tombs. It has not been decided whether the pit was protecting a little castrum of a castra, because there is not enough information.

The discovery of this important heritage owes to the observation and study of Honorat Bauçà. Nowadays, you can see a little piece in C/la Pau, covered by a crystal, and another little piece in a particular property. The presence of this pit in Ses Salines not only proves the Roman occupations of the zone, but also the value that had as a strategic place.Bernat Roig

4. Ca ses monges

Franciscans nuns, first revitalizing of the social life in the town, besides teaching sewing, they organized stage plays, among other things.

5. Església vella (Ancien church)

The first church in the town -result of an extension of a little adjacent chapel- was started to build in 1790 and it was a place of worship until 1897. It was bought by particulars in order to defray the expenses of the new church. The interior was modified and an oven was built in there. In 2007, after different owners, the council acquired it, restored it and nowadays it has a cultural use.

Due to "Lloc i Memòria" ('Place and Memory') we will pay homage to the original use with a collective exhibition around religion, seen from contemporary art: "Deu Visions" ('Ten visions'). For more information, see Exhibitions
