Alaior municipal district lies in the eastern central part of the island with the town at its centre, surrounded by rich agricultural land. To the south of the town are several important archaeological sites and two of the largest tourist resorts on the island.
Founded in 1304, Alaior is built on a hill. Although the main roads leading to the south coast resorts and across the island now bypass Alaior, it is worth wandering through the narrow lanes and alleys of the medieval part of town; if nothing else to witness the contrast between them and the resorts a few kilometres away.
