Some three years ago, the tourist tax was going to be used to purchase it. The finca Sa Tanca de Domenech was to be publicly owned. The tourist tax funding had looked assured when President Armengol turned up at the Pollentia Roman site one day. And it was. Not long afterwards, the committee for the sustainable tourism tax, the one which decides how to spend the revenue and is well loaded in the government’s favour, listed the finca as a project for funding. The president’s visit had all but guaranteed this.
