The old Alcudia is the historic
centre of Mallorca. The town was founded more than 2,000 years ago
and remains the best preserved Medieval town in Mallorca. Its
original name was Pollentia and for many years, it was an important
However, the impressive town walls surrounding the old Alcudia were
built by the Spaniards during the 1300s. After many years of slow
erosion, they are now brought back to their original state. Along
the town walls, there are 26 watchtowers and a number of gates. It
is possible to walk on top of the walls from where there is a
beautiful view of the town.
Inside the walls, all the narrow streets and small squares are
scattered like a maze. There are many charming and well-preserved
houses as well as lovely restaurants, cafes and small shops. The
historic attractions are centred around Placa Constitució.
Tuesdays and Sundays are the days with the most tourists in the old
part of Alcudia. These are the market days, which attract a lot of
tourists from near and far.
For tourists with a further interest in history, the archaeological
museum Museu Monografic is absolutely worth a visit. Please note
that the museum is closed on Mondays.
