Alcudia old town night view

The Church of Sant Jaume originally had the appearance of a fortress and the building was formed part of the wall and it only opened towards the inside of the town of Alcudia. As a result of its deteriorated conditions, the church was completely torn down and rebuilt in the Neogothic style with a single nave and side chapels covered by ribbed vault ceilings in 1870. There is a Neo-gothic altarpiece dedicated to Sant Jaume in the presbytery.
