Inca's patron saints' days' feast

In the days leading up to the patron saints’ day the Town Council organizes various events: “balls de bot”; bullfights; recitals; evening celebrations on the eve of the saints’ day; Holy Mass, always said by an Inca-born priest; tour of the Miquel Mir Residence…

Inca’s residents will be celebrating their patron saints’ days fiestas with a wide-ranging programme of activities for all ages that includes modern, jazz and classical music concerts, exhibitions, folk dancing, street fairs, games for children and juniors and much more. A superb opportunity to visit this town in Mallorca’s hinterland, which is famous for its leather goods, above all footwear. A new addition to the customary festivities is the telling of Sa potada del Rei, a rondalla (traditional folktale) about the island’s conquest and the mark left by a horse’s footprint in the town. Thus, an historical and a fantastical event are related: the surrender of the city to King James and the legend of the hoof print made by the King’s horse, which ends in a performance in which Christian and Muslims followers take part.
