Alcúdia

Alcúdia is small town on the northern side of Mallorca with a population of approximately 19 thousand inhabitants. Alcúdia attracts tourists with its sheltered sandy beaches and several historic monuments, among which two especially stand out.

The first is the ruins of a Roman settlement Pollentia, dating back 2 thousand years - it had been even more populous and significant than Palma de Mallorca back then. The amphitheatre, the forum and several houses of nobility are well preserved. The cost of admission includes museum entry which greatly complements the visuals offered by the Pollentia ruins. The museum offers learning activities and workshops that would allow both adults and children to learn more about archaeology and the Roman epoch of the island: how houses were built, which techniques were used in construction, which toys Roman children used to play with, what they learned in schools, and many other entertaining facts.

The second significant monument in Alcúdia is the fortress wall built in the 14th century by the decree of King Jaume II to protect the town from pirate raids. When it was just completed, the wall was almost 2 km long and had 26 turrets that were 6 meters tall. Despite the construction boom that Alcúdia went through in the 19th century, over the course of which parts of the wall were demolished, its significant portion is still relatively well-preserved. Visitors can walk atop the wall and enjoy the views of the old town from there.
