Algaida is one of the largest municipalities in the Pla de Mallorca region.


It has more than 5,300 inhabitants that are distributed in three urban centres: Algaida, Pina and Randa. It borders Palma to the west, as well as the municipalities of Montuiri, Llucmajor, Santa Eugenia, Sencelles and Lloret de Vistalegre. Algaida is a village that inherits its name from a farmhouse settled in the area during Arab times and means "the forest".


For many years, their economic activity was basically agricultural, but craftsmanship became more important during the last century. Algaida currently stands out, among other things because of its blown glass factory, its cycle-tourism routes and its restaurants.


The patron saint of Algaida is Sant Honorat and its festivity is notable for the dances of the Algaida cossiers, which were already present in the 14th century. Mestre Joan, Els reis, L' obriu-nos, Flor de murta, Dansa nova, Mercansó and Titoieta are the names of the dances of the cossiers.


The cossiers also perform in the summer during the celebration of Sant Jaume festivities. Other outstanding festivals are the carnival (with the trial of Camestortes) and the Festa de la Pau de Castellitx.


The weekly market of Algaida is held on Friday in the main square and in Pina it is held on Tuesday, also in the square.
