In the interior of the island, Inca is among the first cities of the island in terms of number of inhabitants, currently, Inca has about 29,000. It is the most industrial city outside Palma and as capital of the Raiguer area, concentrates the administrative, services and commercial activities.
In Inca there is a market every Thursday (8.00-13.00), considered one of the most important in Mallorca. There are stalls selling handmade goods, leather and Majorcan products.
But the most important market of the year is the “Dijous Bó” (good Thursday) coinciding with the local fairs. It is the largest traditional fair in Mallorca, as well as the last of four fairs that take place in Inca during the months of October and November.
The “Cellers” are buildings where wine was made and stored in large wooden barrels. Nowadays they have been transformed into restaurants. The vineyard was the main crop of Inca until the nineteenth century by the plague of phylloxera. They are usually very high rooms, covered with a girdle, which are below street level or at street level, depending on each winery. Can Ripoll, ca n’Amer and Sa Travessa are three of the most representative wineries today.
As for Inca’s monumental heritage, the church of Santa María la Mayor, the old convent of Sant Domingo, the convent of Sant Francesc, and the monastery of Sant Bartomeu stand out.
