Since the opening of the new Palma to Inca motorway, the centre of the town is now thankfully bypassed by almost all of the lorries
and coaches heading north, which makes the journey along the old Ma-13a north road, which also links the town to Palma, quite a
Looking to the west on a clear day, there's also quite spectacular views over the plains of central Majorca towards the Sierra Tramuntana mountain ranges that dominate the western coast of the island.

Home to just over 25,000 people, Inca is relatively large municipality, who's residents are known locally in the old Majorcan dialect as "Inquer" for men or "Inquera" for women.
However, the municipality is not wholly given over to agriculture, in the north of the municipality, where the land rises, there are large stone oak forests, and in the south-east, near the border with Llubi, there is some of the thickest woodland on the island.
At this point it is probably fair to say that Inca is not one of the most attractive of Majorcan towns, but it is well known across the island for the quality of its shopping. The town has designated itself "Land of Leather" and is also headquarters to the world famous "Camper" shoe firm and there is a large factory outlet on the outskirts of the town where it is possible to buy Camper shoes at very low prices.
The history of the Camper shoe dates back to 1871 when Inca craftsman Antonio Fluxa went to England to learn more about industrial shoe making methods. He returned to Majorca and set up the first shoe making factory in the town.
