There are many shopping centres in Inca, however, for a more traditional Majorcan shopping experience, try the colourful and vibrant market that comes to town every Thursday and offers a range of fresh and delicious Majorcan produce. There is also a daily market at the Carrer de la Pau.
Eating out is another good reason for visiting Inca and there are many excellent restaurants located in some of the old wine cellars. Celler Can Amer and Café Espanol C’an Guize are both good examples.
On a more cultural note, there are several notable buildings in the municipality that are worth looking at. In Inca itself, the Church of Santa María la Mayor, dating from the 18th Century, is also worth a visit, its quadratic belfry is particularly beautiful.
On the outskirts of Inca, on the road out towards Alcudia you can see the Puig de Santa Magdalena, a small mountain of two peaks. This rises up out of the surrounding plain and is well worth a climb as it gives a wonderful view over central Majorca. It is also home to the church of Santa Maria Magdalena, which was founded back in the 13th Century and was originally home to a community of hermits. The style of the building is in keeping with the first parish churches built on Majorca after the Moors were overthrown. Inside, the church is very beautiful and has benefitted from a recent restoration in 1994.
The festival days are also worth visiting Inca for. These consist of the Fira de Santa Magdalena on Easter Sunday, and the Fiesta of the Patron Saints Abdó i Senén on the 30th of July. On the third Thursday of November, the Dijous Bo is held, one of largest and most famous markets on the island.
