Santa Maria del Camí
Linking the Serra de Tramuntana and the Pla de Mallorca regions, a few kilometers far from Palma, the visitor will find Santa Maria del Camí.
Its territory is located in the region of Es Raiguer and borders with the municipalities of Consell, Santa Eugènia, Bunyola, Alaró, Marratxí and also with the Balearic capital, Palma. In addition to the town of Santa Maria del Camí, the municipality includes several urban centres such as Sa Vileta, Els Hostals, Son Fango or Son Bieló.
With more than 6,700 inhabitants, Santa Maria del Camí is still in the process of demographic expansion. Its name goes back to the 13th Century when Santa Maria replaced the Arabic name for the village meaning "on the way", inherited by the church and the village. Almond & carob trees and vineyards are the most important crops in the town.
Santa Maria del Camí celebrates its traditional feasts in July for Santa Margalida. The Santa Maria del Camí Fair, on the other hand, is celebrated in spring, at the end of April. Among the celebrations of the municipality, another highlight is also the celebration of the Novel Wine Fair by the end of November, that demonstrates the importance of the wineries in the municipality.
The weekly market of Santa Maria del Camí is celebrated every Sunday.
