Sa Pobla is an important landmark for Mallorcan agriculture.
It is located in the northern part of the region of Es Raiguer and has more than 12,000 inhabitants. It borders the villages of Búger, Muro, Alcúdia, Pollença, Campanet, Llubí and Inca. It was formerly known as Uialfàs, the name of an Arab farmhouse that was located where the town is now before the Spanish Reconquest.
Sa Pobla is known for the cultivation of potato (which has its own fair), the earliest grown and most demanded from northern Europe. Artichokes, beans or strawberries are other crops that can be found in the neighboring fields.
Sa Pobla is one of the villages of Mallorca where San Antonio's festival is most celebrated. Demons, caparrots, ximbombades, bonfires and a great pyromusical are the highlighted elements of the night, now called Nit Bruixa.
