    Alcudia is worth seeing not only because of the defensive wall, but also because of the romantic Marktlatzes and the tranquil old town streets.

    Alcudia's old town is surrounded by a partially walkable 6 m high city wall from the 14th century. The walk on the city wall offers a wonderful view over the roofs of the old town of Alcudia, the bay of Alcudia and Pollenca, as well as the Tramuntana.

    You can walk along part of the city wall. From there you have a wonderful view over the pretty old town.

    The construction of the city wall began at the end of the 13th century and went back to a design by King James II.

    The city wall has a square plan and has a total length of 1.5 kilometers. It was secured with 26 towers. The wall was built without mortar and is largely preserved. Their average height is six meters. There are two city gates, Porta de Santa Sebastià on the road to Palma to the west and Porta del Moll on the east, leading to the port. In the area of the Porta de Santa Sebastià, the wall is open to the public.

    The city fortification was used primarily to protect against pirate attacks, but was overcome several times. In the 17th century, King Philip IV had another star-shaped ring fastened around the city. This more modern ring had triangular bastions. The intermediate space between the two rings was used as a ring way. However, the outer ring was removed later and is not preserved except for small residues. The year 1660 to be recognized at the Porta de Santa Sebastià goes back to this time.
