Shopping in Palma de Mallorca, Majorca, Spain

 

Shopping in Palma de Mallorca is fantastic. Palma de Mallorca offers a wide variety of top quality leather goods and footwear that are made by the factories in Inca. Browsing in shops run by registered dealers can bring to light interesting antiques and curios.

Local handicrafts and Mallorcan ceramic ware may be found in many stores and are worth buying, whether as souvenirs or gifts. No list would be complete without a mention of the prized quality of the Majorca cultured pearls, produced in Manacor.

Another product in which the island specialises is hand-blown glass. In Vidrios Gordiola (at the 19 km. mark on the Manacor road), visitors are welcome to see glass-making and blowing, as well as the items on display.

 

There are some curious objects, typical of Mallorca, called siurells. These are clay, toy-like figures with a whistle in the base. Mallorcan pottery is rich and varied, with the town of Portol being the pottery capital. Locally made needle- and basketwork is sold in Artà.

The inevitable ensaimada must of course be bought to take back to the family, on one’s return home. But before leaving, it is a good idea to spend a Saturday morning at the Plaza Major, wandering around the open-air Jewellery and Handicrafts Market.
