Inca, Majorca, Spain
Inca is located in the region of Es Raiguer, in the centre of the island. Inca is perfect for a relaxing holiday with great shopping facilities for leather and wine.
Known as the 'City of Leather' Inca is a great place to seek some leather bargains at the many shoe and leather discounted outlets. Also every Thursday a market is held in the town selling leather, jewellery, carved olive wood and lace.
Inca is predominantly an industrial town and therefore not hot on the must-do list for tourists, shopping is probably the main reason for visitors to the islands third largest town.
Inca's town centre should you venture in has been pedestrianised and a pleasant place for a stroll along its palm-lined streets and peaceful squares. The town's main square 'Placa Santa Maria Major' is home to a choice of cafes and bars, and the town's main church, which is worth a visit.
The islands capital of Palma is a must and is reachable by train directly from Inca making a cheap and easy option to visit the city. Full of historical sites and museums Palma makes an ideal day excursion; visit the Gothic sights of La Seu Cathedral and Basilica de Sant Francesc, Palace de L'Almudaina found next to the cathedral and Castell de Bellver the only circular castle in Spain.
