Mancor de la Vall

Between the Serra de Tramuntana & Es Raiguer regions, Mancor de la Vall is a highlight

 

This small village located in the Serra de Tramuntana's valley is bordered by Alaró, Escorca, Selva and Lloseta. It became independent from Selva in 1925 and nowadays its population surpasses the 1,200 inhabitants. The municipality inherits the name of the Muslim alquería named Mancor.

 

Agriculture and mountain activities have always been the motors of Mancor's economy. Nevertheless, nowadays olive cultivation and animal husbandry have given way to a tertiary sector that benefits from tourism attracted by the Serra de Tramuntana natural environment. Like the neighboring towns Alaró, Lloseta or Inca, the footwear has also historically been an important industry.

 

Mancor de la Vall celebrates its main feast on San Juan's Day, in the middle of June. Another well-celebrated festivity is Sant Antoni, which has the particular tradition of the "descent of the crow" before the blessings (beneïdes). The most popular fair in Mancor de la Vall is held by the end of November.

 

The weekly market of Mancor de la Vall is celebrated on Monday.
