LOCATION

The traditional inhabited area of Alcúdia is the one called Port d’Alcúdia, that includes the area that goes from the Alcudiamar Marina to Alcanada. Its heart is located in the small harbour where fishermen have lived for centuries . Its present appearance has been changing lately, it has been modernized but without forgetting its humble origins.

The traditional inhabited area of Alcúdia is the one called Port d’Alcúdia, that includes the area that goes from the Alcudiamar Marina to Alcanada. Its heart is located in the small harbour where fishermen have lived for centuries . Its present appearance has been changing lately, it has been modernized but without forgetting its humble origins.

In the 50’s the traditional life of this place was altered with the construction of the thermal power station GESA (still its two towers can be seen) and of the adjacent village of GESA. All this promoted a strong demographic and labour increase that was followed by the extension of the comercial harbour.

Following the coastline towards the North we find Alcanada, a calm and exclusive residential zone of houses, that recently has often hit the headlines with the construction during the year 2004 of a 18-hole golf course.
