Llucmajor

llucmajor

 

Llucmajor is the largest municipality in Mallorca and the most populated of the Migjorn region.

 

The municipality's population has 34,000 inhabitants, a third part of which live in the town of Llucmajor, while the rest are spread over more than fifteen urban centres. S'Arenal, with almost 9,000 inhabitants, is the second most populated village. Llucmajor borders with Palma and the villages of Algaida, Montuïri, Porreres and Campos. Nowadays, the origin of the town's name is unclear, although some theories find an Arab root.

 

Tourism is currently the main economic source of the town, being s'Arenal, on the beach of Palma, the largest touristic town in Mallorca. The stone quarries also have had a historically relevant activity in Llucmajor.

 

The patron saint of Llucmajor is Santa Candida and the popular feasts are held at the beginning of August. Some highlights of this festival are the Llucmajor's gegants (giants) and the Cavallets cotoners, recovered at the beginning of the 20th century. Some other important events are Llucmajor's Autumn Fairs (October), Sant Antoni Festival and the sermon of s'Enganalla in Easter.
