The imposing walls visible today are the product of the Italian architect Calvi in the 16th century. These walls were built so firm, that still today it is one of the two only fortifications in Europe that still has it’s complete original structure.

Most of them are ruines today but some of them were restored and declared Heritage of Cultural Interest as is Molí d’en Toni Joan, Molí des Porxet and Molí des Puig d’en Valls. They all stand symbol of great balearic rural architecture.
