It may seem hard to believe, but the town now known as Alcúdia has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Just a short drive from the coast, the historic charm of this former Roman settlement draws in Spanish and international holidaymakers all year round. There, the Romans built a settlement called Pollentia, which became one of the islands most important trading hubs. The remains of this site continue to catch the eye of visitors even to this day.
