Alcudia - Lying in the large Bay of Alcudia, formed by the Cap de Formentor and Cap d’es Pinar peninsulars is the ancient walled town of Alcudia, one of the largest towns on the island of Mallorca.

Alcudia's impressive fortifications, which were built to protect the town from raiding pirates, can still be seen today, as can some remains of its Roman settlements including the ruins of Roman Pollentia and the remains of a Roman ampitheatre, carved out of solid rock during the 1st century BC, it is reputed to be the smallest Roman theatre in Spain. The original walls of the town were constructed by the Moors, they were reinforced and improved during the 16th century.

The narrow streets of Alcudia’s old town still retain much of their original charm and are well worth a look if you are visiting the town.
