One of the most gratifying outings you can make from Alcúdia is the climb to the La Victòria hermitage and lookout point, either by car of by foot, around 445 above sea level. The hermitage, which boasts a Baroque style, was built in the 14th century and refurbished in around the 18th century. From it you can catch outstanding views of the two bays, Pollença and Alcúdia, the Cap Formentor and, on clear days, the island of Menorca. Atop La Talaia mountain, almost 450 metres above sea level, are the remains of the Alcúdia tower. This circular-shaped defence tower was built in the 16th century as part of the system of alert towers along Mallorca’s coastline to notify the authorities and the population of the arrival of any danger by sea, such as pirates. During the day, the towers used a system of smoke signals, while at night they used fire. This tower was also used to transmit messages to the city of Alcúdia by waving banners atop a pole.
