Inca, a town located in the central part of Mallorca known for its leather industry.
Update 02/02/23. Beyond the sunset, the beach and the touristy set of Mallorca we find yet another island where the ambience of ancient culture can be deeply breathed through the eyes and lungs. Inca is located in the centre of the island, and is the third largest city in Mallorca.
Highly regarded for the footwear and leather garments designed and made here, much of it by hand, you are certain to find much to delight your eye and your purse. The famous weekly market is held on Thursdays. Every year, in the middle of November, there is the celebrated Dijous known by the name named Bo. This is a rather special market that attracts visitors, residential and tourists, from all over the island.
Do take time to stroll through the urban fabric of Inca. Your route will reveal much that will please and interest you. Here, it is a little offbeat and none the worse for being so. There is much to browse, it has its own traditions and it is also known for its friendly camaraderie. Feeling a little overwhelmed, do enjoy café society, indoors or al fresco. Here you will find traditional dishes of Mallorca and bi-lingual staff happy to explain their fare to you.
The passage of history has left us here many magnificent architectural examples to raise our eyebrows and our cameras. Of note are the Cloisters of Santo Domingo, now restored as a cultural centre. There is also the Church of St. Mary Major, The Cloister of Sant Francesc, and the Convent of Sant Bartomeu.
