Alcudia is a walled city which stands as one of the oldest towns in Majorca. It is very important for the history and culture of the island. In fact, it was Majorca’s capital during the Roman occupation, and due to its strategic location between Alcudia and Pollensa bays, it was the settlement of several cultures until the Roman conquest, which established Pollentia as the main town. Roman remains can be found today on the island, for example, at the Roman amphitheatre and in Pollentia city.
With the aim of protecting the citizens and the town from the different attacks, the king Jaime II built Alcudia’s wall in the 14th century. However, this rampart wasn’t enough to protect the island from the pirates’ attacks, which continued until 1779, when the harbour was built.
Gran Isla is a hotel chain which manages several resorts across the island, and one of them is the Piscis Hotel, which is placed in Puerto de Alcudia, the largest spot on Majorca’s northern coast. It is only 1 km. from Alcudia, and it offers lots of services, facilities, opportunities to enjoy sporting activities and many other leisure options. There are beautiful sandy beaches with crystal calm waters, which makes Alcudia the best destination for water sport lovers.
