History and culture

The origins of Alcúdia are rooted in an ancient Muslim farming community called ‘Al-Qudya’, which in Arabic means hill, although the indications are that the earliest settlers date back to the pre-Talaiot period, sometime between 2000 and 1500 BCE.

The Roman city of Pol·lèntia and the Roman Theatre are situated south of Alcúdia’s historic quarter. They were declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1974, together with the medieval wall that surrounds the town.

Other places of interest include the Major Tower, built in the 17th century to defend Alcúdia from pirate attacks, and ‘Cova de Sant Martí’, a natural cave linked to the arrival of Christianity to this area.
