About

The market building was constructed in the early 20th century as a solution to the unhygienic state of the population. It was particularly the sale of meats and fish happening on the streets that made the inhabitants sick. The very first use of this building, however, was imprisonment of the politicians who had promoted it, which happened when the war broke out in 1936.

Felanitx (Felanich)

Felanitx is one of those areas that has the full package; charm, nature, history, beaches, mountains, rural countryside and lots of soul, it’s a cultural treasure. The area has been inhabited since prehistorical times, which has left several marks on the local culture and self-perception of the people. Moreover, Felanitx is home to a wide range of interesting attractions to go see i.e. the Sant Salvador sanctuary, the stunning Sant Miquel church, the old oenelogical research center, the Augustine convent, the rocky fortress of Santueri and much more. The heart and soul of Felanitx is present everywhere you turn, especially if you visit during one of the many annual festivities or fairs in town where traditions are celebrated. Felanitx is also home to the charming harbor area of Portocolom, an old fishing village with lots of great restaurants to enjoy an authentic and tasteful dish of meats or seafood.
