Artà

arta

 

Artà is one of the most characteristic villages of the Majorcan Llevant region.

 

It is bordered by Santa Margalida, Petra, Sant Llorenç, Son Servera and Capdepera. Indeed, together with these two last towns, it formed the District of Yartan during the Muslim era, and this is where its present name comes from.

 

The population of Artà is around 7,500 inhabitants, most of which are concentrated in Artà vila, while about 1,000 inhabitants are divided into other urban areas such as Colònia de Sant Pere and other urban centres. Agriculture and tourism coexist like the most important motors of the economy of the town. Some fruit trees, the vine and the olive tree are Artà's main crops. Particularly notable is the palm as one of the important crafts of the municipality.

 

The Artà Fair, held in mid-September, highlights as one of the earliest fairs after the summer season. The town's biggest festival is celebrated for San Salvador during the first week of August, but the Sant Antoni festival is also a very popular event in January.

 

The Artà market is held every Tuesday at the Plaça del Conqueridor.
