The best way to get to know the historical remains of Alcudia, as well as strolling down its streets, is to visit the Monographic Museum of Pollentia, located in a fifteenth century building which was once a hospital. This is to be found close to St James Church (patron saint of Alcudia), a gothic monument. Despite the temple dating back to the end of the thirteenth century, which was also when the rectory and the cemetery were built, a small oratory had existed there before. There are many other sites to be visited due to their great artistic and historical value. We would like to highlight the Oratory of Saint Ana (one of the most ancient gothic churches in Mallorca, located very close to the Roman theatre), Son Fe Hermitage, Saint Martin’s Oratory (located in an underground cave) and St Victoria´s Sanctuary (found 450 meters above sea level on a likewise named mountain). Close to this last monument the Atalaya of Alcudia (once catalogued as the tallest defensive tower of the island) is found. The Atalaya was built along the sixteenth century, though two centuries later it was destroyed by a storm. Despite some partial reforms, few remains are left. This site however is an excellent view point from which to see the bays of Alcudia and Pollença. Two islets (Alcanada and Es Porros) preside the bay of Alcudia . It is interesting to know that Es Porros was an ancient necropolis from talayotic times which belonged to the now neighbouring town of Santa Margalida.
