It was built in the beginning of the 17th century as a watchtower in the days of the pirates. It's a 4 km long-route from Alcúdia to Torre Major.

- We enter Es Port by Carrer de Teodor Canet and follow this street ca 1,5 km. Then we take Carrer de Gabriel Roca and afterwards Camí de Alcanada which is road that will lead us to Torre Major.
In 1598 a Royal Privilege entailed the improvement of the defensive layout of the area, although the building of the tower was delayed until the reign of Felipe V. The fortification was completed with orders to build a fort in the bay of the Port Major, hence the name of Torre Major. It is one of the five coastal watch points in Alcúdia. The coats of arms by Antoni Verger were placed over the gate in 1602 but building was not finished until 1613. It is said that in 1860 the building was deserted and Alcúdia was no longer an artillery emplacement.
