It is very well preserved and offers together with the Porta Dell Moll a beautiful entrance into the historic city center of Alcudia. Here you can stroll through the picturesque old town streets of Alcudia on old paving stones, stroll around the many small boutiques and shops or take a break at a typical Mallorcan café.
Alcudia, nestled in an uniquely beautiful landscape, breathes history: the oldest archaeological finds documenting a settlement in the village date back to 2000 BC. Later the Romans founded the settlement of Pollentia here, whose ruins can still be seen today south of the current town wall of Alcudia. During the reign of the Romans, the town even became the capital of Mallorca and the entire Balearic Islands. Even today, the town name still bears witness to the later reign of the Moors: it comes from the Arabic expression "Al-Qudya" meaning "the hill".

Unlike in Puerto de Pollensa or Puerto de Alcudia, Cala San Vicente offers small bathing bays between towering mountains. The rock panorama visible from these bays is probably the most breathtaking of all Mallorca.
