LOCATION

The municipality of Alcúdia, 54 km from Palma, is located in a peninsula that divides the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença. Situated between these two big bays, this town was once a Roman colony. There, you can still visit the interesting remains of the Roman town of Pollentia. Alcúdia is a heavenly place that hasn’t passed unnoticed by the different ethnic groups and cultures that have lived in this spot since prehistoric times.

Alcúdia is today one of the most celebrated towns of Mallorca. It enjoys a privileged geographic location: it lies in the North-east of Mallorca, 54 km away from Palma, in a peninsula that separates the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença. The historical city of Alcúdia is the core of the borough of Alcúdia. Inside the mediaeval city people have been living for centuries and still today it is one of the most important towns. It is certain that the walled Alcúdia has remained too small to welcome the demographic increase and the successive migrations that have followed with the development of tourism since the 70’s.

Because of that Alcúdia has been expanding its borders. Gradually the farming land outside the walls has become building plots able to welcome the increase of population. The areas that have already been developed , Ca S’Anglès, S’Hort of ses Barreres, Ca Na Saloma, Ca Na Ferrera and Sa Pilota have made the walls of Alcúdia go forward in a figurative way.
