Today you will arrive in Alcudia, one of the most beautiful towns in Spain located in the northeast of Mallorca, 45 minutes by car from Palma airport. Once you settle into the hotel, it's time to discover its historic center. As soon as you arrive in this municipality, its medieval walls will catch your attention. Its strategic location made this beautiful municipality a place that received many attacks, especially from pirates who wanted to plunder the city. Thus, these walls were torn down by attackers and rebuilt over the centuries to keep Alcudia and its inhabitants safe. From that time, the moat, some pieces of the wall and two doors through which Alcudia was accessed and which are the icon of this town are still preserved. Within these walls, you will find the Church of San Jaime, patron saint of the town, narrow streets with houses and small traditional shops, the Paseo Mare de Déu de la Victoria, where on Tuesdays and on Sundays the market is set up, the Puerta del Moll and the lively town hall square where there is no shortage of restaurants and ice cream parlors.
In the center of Alcudia you will find a wide variety of options for both lunch and dinner: Italian restaurants, Majorcan restaurants, kebabs, burger joints, breweries... Here are our recommendations:
Ca'n Pantina Restaurant: tapas, Majorcan dishes, meat and fish. Nice and good value for money.
Sa Portassa: restaurant specializing in pa amb olis.
Brown charcoal: meats and hamburgers.
Es Racó de Ronda: Tapas and Iberian sausages.
Ice cream parlor Garrido: the best ice creams in Alcudia. You can't miss their famous strawberry orange ice cream!
Cervecería Santa Ana: ideal for a few beers and a snack.
Enjoy the second day in Alcudia discovering its fabulous kilometric beach of white sand and turquoise waters. If you travel in summer you can stay for the day and if you travel in the colder months, you can stroll along the shore and enjoy the tranquility of winter. In the afternoon, it is a good time to go to the Port of Alcudia, always lively in any month of the year. There is a small beach, llaüts (typical Majorcan boats), fashion shops, bars, restaurants and a beautiful promenade. Our recommendation is that you stay here for dinner and, if you feel like it, extend the night in one of its chill out venues, pubs or nightclubs.
In the port of Alcudia you will find many gastronomic options as it is the favorite place for residents and travellers. Our recommendations are:
Today you will leave Alcudia, one of the three most beautiful villages in the Balearic Islands, to head to the second most beautiful village in Spain: Pollença. This coastal municipality is a short distance from Alcudia, so in less than 15 minutes by car you will have reached its historic center. Once you settle into your hotel, it's time to go out and discover its little streets, churches, its Plaza Mayor and its beautiful Majorcan houses. Lose yourself in its streets and climb El Calvario, a steep hill with 365 steps that ends in a beautiful church (Iglesia del Calvario) and a viewpoint from where you can see the best views of Pollença. In the Plaza Mayor you will find restaurants and bars where you can sit down to eat or have a drink on their terraces. On Sunday, in this same square you can also enjoy its market: fruits, vegetables, flowers, clothes, handicrafts... Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful markets in Mallorca. If you like art, you can also visit the Museum of Pollença, with paintings and archaeological pieces by various artists.
The first owners of Mount Calvario were the Templars who received these lands for their help to Jaime I of Aragon in the Conquest of Mallorca, in 1229. The Templars established themselves as authentic feudal lords with great autonomy from the clergy and the monarchy. This allowed them to abuse their power, collecting taxes from those who accessed their territories, even obtaining their own church, the Mare de Déu dels Àngels, located in the Plaza Mayor de Pollença and, what is worse, dispensing their own justice through from the gallows In fact, the top of El Calvari was previously known as Puig de les Forques (mount of gallows). Over the years, Pollença grew and became one of the most important towns in Mallorca in the 13th century. With the growth of the town and tired of the abuses, the confrontations between the citizens of Pollença with the Templars also grew. Finally, the presence of the Templars in Mallorca ended in 1312 with the disappearance of the Order by order of the Pope.
Take advantage of your stay in Pollença to get to know its lively port and its beach. Walking along the promenade of Puerto Pollença you will find beautiful restaurants by the sea, charming cafes, clothing stores, souvenirs, Majorcan mansions and a small sandy beach with hammocks, umbrellas and a children's playground. Our recommendation is that you stay for lunch or dinner by the port as there is a wide gastronomic offer and the place is beautiful. If you travel outside the summer months, you can go with your car to Formentor beach and the famous lighthouse with one of the most emblematic sunsets in Mallorca. Of course, if you travel in high season, the road is closed to private vehicles for reasons of conservation and prevention of traffic accidents, so you can only access it by public transport. The bus leaves from the same port so it will not be difficult to get there.
Ca Les Monges Restaurant: Majorcan food, sandwiches and tapas that stand out for their local produce.
Ca'n Ferrà restaurant-winery: traditional Majorcan gastronomy.
Abbaco restaurant: creative, fresh and modern cuisine. Mediterranean, South American and Asian cuisine. It has vegetarian options, gluten-free dishes and sushi made at the moment.

Ca'n Pescador: specialists in paellas and matured meats on the seafront.
To get to Fornalutx from Pollença you can do it from two routes: the fast one, by the motorway or the beautiful one, our recommended route. It will not take much longer and you will pass through the beautiful towns of Lluc and Escorca through a road surrounded by spectacular landscapes of the Sierra de Tramuntana. In 1 hour and 15 minutes you will have reached your destination, without counting the stops you want to make along the way. On the way, deviating a bit, if you feel like it you can also stop at Sa Calobra, a beautiful beach whose main attraction is the curves of its road and its views of the sea. When you arrive at the small mountain town of Fornalutx, the first in the Balearic Islands awarded as the Most Beautiful Town in Spain, you will realize its great beauty and how easy it is to walk through its narrow streets and cobbled houses. Take advantage of the afternoon to discover its historic center, the town hall, the church and the defense tower. If you like hiking, from here there are several easy routes where you can enjoy the mountains and the valleys of orange trees.
Although Fornalutx is a small town, there are different options for lunch and dinner. From typical Majorcan restaurants to Italian restaurants.
Fornalutzx is located in the Sierra de Tramontana, in Mallorcan Serra de Tramuntana. This mountain range was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011. It is almost 90 kilometers long and is located in the northeast of the island of Mallorca, hence its name since, according to the local wind rose, the wind in that area It is the so-called Tramontana wind. This mountainous system is the most important of the Balearic Islands and extends from Andratx to Cap de Formentor. In this mountain range is the Puig Major, the highest mountain in Mallorca.
For today, you have two options depending on your interests: stay in Fornalutx and disconnect from the city, or visit Sóller, its lively neighboring town located just 4km away. Sóller is another beautiful municipality located in the Sierra de Tramuntana that has a historic center marked by the influence of Catalan Modernism and the fortunes that were amassed with the export of citrus fruits to the rest of Europe. In Plaza de Sóller you will find the Church of San Bartolomé, with a spectacular modernist façade, the lavish Santander bank and the shopping street that leads to the square: Carrer Lluna (Calle Luna).

The Sóller tram was the first electric tram in Mallorca. It was manufactured in 1913 to unite the town with the Port of Sóller. Initially it was designed for passenger transport but the needs and the great commercial activity of the time meant that it was also used for the transport of goods, including even an isothermal wagon to transport fish from the port to the center of Sóller.
On your way back to the airport or the port of Palma, if you travel with enough time, you can take the opportunity to stop in the pretty little town of Deià or Valdemossa, in the Sierra de Tramuntana. Remember to leave early to avoid last minute mishaps. Have a good trip!
