The site of the modern day resort was originally the port for the old, walled town of Alcudia, now beautifully restored. Its history encompasses the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans, but it was the Moors who built much of the city as it is today. The medieval ramparts were added after the Spanish conquest of the 14th century. Inside you will discover a maze of warren-like streets typical of Arab towns. Be sure to explore the remains of Roman houses and a well preserved amphitheatre close by.
