Renaissance shows up

In the historic centre you can find plenty of examples of casals, houses which were restored, mainly in their facades, during the 16th century to adapt them to new stylistic tastes.

During the War of la Germania (1521-1523) Palma's noblemen sought refuge in Alcúdia. They introduced humanistic ideas which influenced the local aristocracy who adopted them. With these new ideas a new stylistic language was introduced, which was applied to the construction of the most important casals of Alcudia. Many of them have reached our time almost untouched. Some examples are Can Castell, Can Fondo - nowadays seat of the History archives and exhibition hall -, Can Canta, Can Doménech - nowadays seat of the Consortium of the Roman City of Pollentia - and Can Costa.
