As regards sights, Alcúdia is privileged because it is located close to Puerto Pollensa, Cabo Formentor, Albufera Natural Park, Playa de Muro… From the top of its mountains the views are astonishing, even it is possible to see Menorca, one of the smallest islands of Balearic Islands.

In relation with History and culture, Alcúdia stands as one of the oldest cities in Mallorca so it has a lot of historical value. it was firstly occupied by the Phoenicians and the Greeks, in 123 BC the Roman settled Pollentia, which was attacked by Vandals, Byzantines and Arabs (who named it Al Kudia), and finally it was re-conquered by the Spanish in 1229.

Several studies confirm that first citizens date from 2000 BC.

Still today there are many remains of those conquerors along the town and nearby villages which are part of the rich cultural heritage of Mallorca.

Moreover, Alcúdia historic centre is enclosed by a wall which was built in 14th century by King Jaume II in order to protect citizens, but it wasn’t enough since it suffered pirates attacks at every turn during 16th century, most people runned away from the town with the risk of being completely uninhabited, but it didn’t happened thanks to the harbour built in 1779.

Finally, as an all year destination, Alcúdia houses over 80 hotels and apartments, and Gran Isla Hotels is happy to announce that our adults-only resort Piscis Hotel is located in the centre of Puerto de Alcúdia, only 150 metres of the white sandy beach, it is the ideal accommodation for couples looking for a romantic holidays in Mallorca.
