Property for sale in Alcudia: one step away from paradise
Alcudia is one of the most privileged areas on the island of Mallorca. In consequence, its more than evident that its charms place it at the top of the property hunters’ list when searching for a property to buy in Mallorca. It is set between two bays, the bay of Pollensa and the bay of Alcudia in the beautiful North of Mallorca in perfect harmony with nature in the form of beaches, Mediterranean landscapes and local, traditional culture.
The Old Town of Alcudia
We will never tire of extolling the virtues of Alcudia as one of the most beautiful towns in Mallorca. Its old city walls are imposing in this otherwise small town and both the medieval and renaissance sections of the walls are exceptionally beautiful to behold.
The city gates stand on the threshold of this enchanting town and are of great architectural value as examples of medieval construction.
Once inside the gates and the city walls, one of the most outstanding monuments in this locality is the Church of Sant Jaume. It is an imposing structure, not surprising when you consider that it once formed part of the walls themselves so it looks almost like a fortress.
The rest of the town is similar to the rest of Mallorcan localities with charming narrow streets, traditional style houses and enchanting tucked away squares. You will also come face to face with larger houses with a renaissance look about them and which are connected to the nobility who were influential at one time in the town.
