History of Alcúdia:
With about 20.000 inhabitants, Alcúdia can be considered a small town, but from its large historic heritage, Alcúdia is now big, very big.
Still today you can visit the remains of the ancient city of Pollentia
founded after the conquest of Mallorca by the Romans in 123 a.C
. Later, with the fall of the Roman Empire, the city was abandoned until Al-Qudya was founded with the Muslim conquest.
In 1229, with the conquest of King Jaume I, the island and Alcúdia became part of the Kingdom of Aragon. As time went by, the Arab name was adapted to the current name "Alcúdia" and the construction of the walls that nowadays surround the historic centre of the town began.
