Travel Agents View town square comes to life on a Friday when the fruit and vegetable market is held

Lluchmajor is situated in the south, just 27km from the capital city of Palma.

The town square comes to life on a Friday when the fruit and vegetable market is held. There are also many bars and cafes to be found around the town square so it really is a great place for people watching.

There is not much in the way of activities in Lluchmajor but there are some places of interest such as the 19th century town hall and the 18th century church of San Miguel which are worth a visit.

The town is just 15km from the coast and 20km from the airport.

Majorca Insider ...a genuine farming town slap bang in the middle of rolling countryside full of almond and apricot trees and fields of wheat

Some might say Lluchmajor's a load of cobblers and they wouldn't be far wrong because it has a proud reputation for being the very heart of Majorca's shoe making industry. It's a genuine farming town slap bang in the middle of rolling countryside full of almond and apricot trees and fields of wheat. Its other call to fame is that it is the site of a famous battle that took place between Jaume III and his cousin Pedro IV of Aragon in 1349. Jaume III was defeated and killed, bringing to an end the brief 120 year independent Kingdom of Majorca. Happily we've all come a long way since then and Majorca's back in Spanish hands with its own regional government.

Lluchmajor has a number of interesting places to visit including the Franciscan Convent of Sant Bonaventura which dates back to the 17th century and which is adjoined by the church. Within the cloistered walls there is a new cultural centre which exhibits local artists' works. Do pop by Sant Miquel church which was constructed between 1784 and the nineteen hundreds and is the second largest on the island-after Palma cathedral. On a Friday the town%u2019s market includes a flea market which is great fun for hunting out historic knick knacks!

Not far from the town are some seriously wonderful attractions such as the Gordiola glassworks near Algaida. It is quite a tourist trap and the place does get very crowded at the height of the season but to watch the experienced glass blowers in action is a sight to behold. There's also a historical glass museum upstairs and a tempting gift shop of goblets and glass artefacts but they're not the cheapest! Also worth visiting is Capocorb, a prehistoric site near the coast which is unique in Europe, and for the romantics, go and see the sunset at Acantiladors de Cabo Blanco, a lovers' hang out. The fishing village of S'Estanyol is pretty and Cala Pi boasts a spring which when full with rain water causes the beach to disappear. If you have a hire car, do try to visit the old country house cum museum of Els Calderers which is spectacular and gives a taste of what Majorcan life was like in the 19th century. I never tire of visiting this place and neither does my son.

A restaurant worth visiting in nearby Algaida is C'an Mateu, which offers an imaginative Spanish menu and is housed in an ancient 400 year old building with well kept gardens and swimming pool. The other is Es 4 Vents, a contemporary affair in an old converted station bar which offers mouth-watering grilled meats and fish dishes.
