Alcudia Town

The historical center of Alcudia originates in the XIV century after the Catalan conquest of the island. King James II of Mallorca ordered the construction of the walls to protect the city and the island of possible enemy attacks. In the XVII century a second wall, of Renaissance style was built, currently under restoration .

Alcúdia was declared Artistic Historial Site in 1974 and is nowadays the best preserved walled town of the Island.

In the historical center of Alcudia you can visit buildings impregnated of history, of great beauty and architectural value. There are gothic and Renaissance houses. Also civil, religious and cultural buildings like the Town Hall, Can Torró library, Can Fondo, Can Joanet, Can Domènec, the roman city of Pollentia and its museum, the Church and Parish Museum of Sant Jaume, The Bullring, amongst other unique buildings like the Auditorio de Alcúdia and Can Ramis, where you can find the Tourist Information Office.

The centre is only for pedestrians and in its streets you can enjoy a wide range of gastronomy and shopping.

Every Tuesday and Sunday is celebrated the craft and food market which has its origins in the 14th century.

Roman City of Pollentia

The arrival of the Romans on the Island of Majorca in 123 BCE, led by General Quintus Caecilius Metellus, brought about the foundation of the City of Pollentia in Alcúdia. The city is to be found in the north-east of the Island of Majorca, at a strategic elevation situated at the start of the isthmus that separates the current Bays of Pollença and Alcúdia. Its privileged situation enabled its control of the two bays.

The Romans imposed a new political and social order and brought a new culture to the inhabitants of the islands and a new language: Latin. The islands were now under the authority of a new Roman province: Hispania Citerior. The gradual process of substituting the existing Talayotic culture for the imposed Roman culture is known as “Romanisation”.

New urban models were introduced and urban living appeared for the first time. The City of Pollentia has revealed sufficient vestiges and remains to demonstrate that this was a wholly Roman city and that the 1st, 2nd and 3rd centuries are when it witnessed its greatest splendour. A clear example of this fact is the existence of the Theatre, an infrastructure that only certain cities could enjoy.

Playa de Alcudia

Located in Puerto de Alcúdia, this fine white sand beach is 7-km long. It's the largest beach on the Balearic Islands stretching along Alcúdia bay. A place where Romans walked about in their togas and the vandals anchored their galleys. Now we find an extensive range of facilities; in the water (windsurfing, water slides, sausage rides, parasailing, catamarans, sailing boats, pedalos…) and on the beach where you can find plenty of open air bars, public toilets and showers, sun beds and parasols and much more. It's Alcúdia's largest beach, the most accessible, the one with the widest sport and fun facilities and the safest one. The water flows calmly and deepens gradually.

We can divide this long beach in two sections: the first one starts at the marina. It has a two kilometre-long promenade until Ciudad Blanca. This is the main sport and fun facilities area. The second section stretches from Ciudad Blanca to Playa de Muro. Nature here stays more unspoiled. To this section come both those who look for a place to rest and those who want to enjoy some exercise. Sun chairs and parasols can also be rented in this peaceful section.

However, Alcúdia Bay boasts many other beaches belonging to the neighbouring councils of Playas de Muro, Can Picafort and Colonia de San Pedro.

There are several Red Cross first-aid posts along the Bay.

Playa del Coll Baix

Es Coll Baix is one of the most special beaches on the island, a rarity, a gift for people fond of nature. But it is not easy to reach. You'll have to walk for kilometres along a path surrounded by pine trees, which becomes a little more difficult at the end. As you come closer to the end, you get a better view of what expects you down there; an unspoiled beach surrounded by high mountain slopes. It's 250-m long and 75-m wide with a mixture of sand and shingle.

The water colour is milky turquoise. The water deepens quickly very close to the seashore, which makes it a perfect place for anchoring near the coast.

FEATURES
- Area: Cabo Pinar.
- Type: Thick sand and pebbles.
- Services: None. Unspoilt beach.
- Occupation: Low.

HOW TO GET THERE
By car, on foot, by bike
- Departing from Alcúdia take the Camí del Mal Pas for 1,5 km.
- At the little roundabout take the second turn right into the Camí de la Muntanya for 3 km until you reach a small shelter.
- From there follow the signs towards the path and you'll get there in about 30 minutes.
