Sites of Interest in Inca

SAN BARTOLOMÉ CONVENT

Convento de San BartoloméDescription

It is located in the region of Es Raiguer, in the interior of the island. Inca is among the first cities of the island in terms of number of inhabitants. Historically the municipality had Talayotic settlements that continued to be inhabited during the Roman domination, until the s. V. In Islamic times it was called 'Inkàn', and from the Arab presence there are some vestiges, such as the 'sinies' and the 'ganats' or 'foggara', different systems to extract the underground water. The boom of the town began in the early twentieth century, when, favored by the train and the installation of a gas factory, appeared the first industries in the leather sector, mainly focused on footwear. In Inca there is a market every Thursday, considered one of the most important in Mallorca.
