Default Pollensa Prison?

A letter in todays Times may be of interest:
Sir, ........... “alfresco” in Italy is a euphemism for being in jail . In Pollenca, Majorca, there used to be a large lemon tree outside the old town jail. The equivalent euphemism was that anyone incarcerated was described as “picking lemons”. ............................
Pollenca, Mallorca"

Where was the jail and lemon tree?

The prison is in Palma by the side of the Hipodrom, just off the Soller Road.
