Alcudia Mallorca

Old Town Alcudia Mallorca

This is a view towards the old town entrance. Researchers think that the town was already very active during the Roman empire, when Quintus Caecilius Metellus built the islands capital here, named "Pollentia". The city walls were erected in the 13th century as protection against pirates.

Mayors Office Alcudia Mallorca

This is the top of the Mayors' office in Alcudia ("Casa Consistorial"), where you also find the tourist information office. The roof and the clock are heavily ornamented and look stunning. Alcudias' old town is a good place for your stay on Mallorca, as you can easily get to Formentor and the Cap de Pinar, but also a trip to the West Coast and Palma does not take too long!
