Roman Ruins in Mallorca

On the North Coast of Mallorca are some Roman Ruins. They are only small, but amazing to see that they still exist, and haven't been bulldozed to make way for something else! Also a really interesting castle to see, complete with a moat (although all dried up now). But great to see the infrastructure of how a castle was built! The windows in the outside walls were great, from the outside they were only long narrow slots. From the inside there was enough space for a person to sit in there and shoot arrows from. Obviously it was harder for theie "enemies" to get their arrows through this narrow slot. Mallorca was a haven for pirates with so many small harbours to hide their stash in!
