Inca is Mallorca’s third biggest city, after Palma and Manacor, and is home to approximately 30,000 inhabitants. Inca is big in the leather business, including shoes.
The main parish church, shown in my photo from its rear, is called Santa Maria d’Inca. Originally built in rather modest proportions in the 14th Century, it was rebuilt with its present, rather grand character, in 1843, with the tower being separate from the main church. Only one hundred years ago a small chapel was added, linking the church with the bell tower.
Thursday is market day in Inca. Every year, in November, Inca celebrates the largest market on the island, called Dijous Bo. Farmers from all over Mallorca then congregate in Inca to either present their wares, including livestock, or to buy from their colleagues.
The photo was taken in Inca, Mallorca, Spain. The date: January 24th, 2008. The time was 13:58:41.
