Manacor is the most important town in the Llevant region

 

Manacor is the capital of Llevant and one of the most populated towns of Mallorca. It borders with Felanitx to the south, Vilafranca de Bonany to the west, Petra to the north and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar to the east. The town has several urban centers, being the city of Manacor, Porto Cristo and S'Illot the most populated.

 

The total population of the town exceeds the barrier of 40,000 inhabitants. The origin of the name Manacor is not very clear, but the main theory suggests that it could have an Arabic origin.

 

The economy of Manacor is rich and varied. On one hand, the town received the tourism of its coastal villages. On the other hand, its furniture industry has been increased in the last few years.

 

The most important festivities of Manacor are celebrated for Sant Antoni and for Sant Jaume at the end of the spring and are also repeated in September.

 

Manacor has two weekly markets, on Monday and Saturday, while Porto Cristo celebrates its market on Sunday and S'Illot on Saturday.
