Alcudia, Majorca Spain...



Alcudia is a beautiful little town in the North of Majorca. It takes about 30 min to get to from Can Picafort , using the local bus service.

It is what I call real Spain, with its gorgeous streets, stone walls, wooden shutters and roads framed by lines of pot plants.


It is also home to a wonderful old fort, who's walls surround the beautiful terraced
homes and restaurants creating a little village and haven for all that lives and visits there.


You can actually walk along the top of the wall and take in the beautiful views.


Because of siesta, it can almost seem deserted at times, with the locals only opening their doors and shutters when the sun goes down. It makes for such a peaceful atmosphere.


Overhead hundreds of swallows dive and swoop , serenading you with their song. It's just beautiful.


Within the walls you are spoilt for choice when it comes for restaurants.
We started off with a tasting menu at a deli and enjoyed some locally made wine and cured ham.


Then after walking round for what felt like ages we finally made a decision and settled for a restaurant with live music and a free glass of Champagne. As you do.


I wish I could remember the name but alas I think the bubbles may have got to my head.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented and prepared. It was a real treat and a perfect way to say goodbye to our friends who were leaving the next day.


Alcudia is well worth a visit and although I wouldn't chose to stay there myself, as it can be very busy, I would definitely recommend it for a day or night trip, especially within the fort walls.
