Alcudia: a modern city full of history
In Mallorca's northern region, an in the bays of Pollença and Alcudia, we find a small city full of life, historical monuments and many things to discover. This is Alcudia, which along with its harbour stands as one of the most vibrant destinations in Mallorca, thanks to its Roman ruins, its historic walled town-centre, and its beach surrounded by hotels and attractions for tourists seeking a great time during their holidays.

·Walled quarter: The medieval city wall of Alcudia surrounds the city's old town-centre, today yielding a marvellous ensemble of back-streets in which to stroll and shop in its numerous little shops, while also making the most of its weekly Sunday market.
