Felanitx is at the centre of Mallorca's second wine producing area and it is also known for its capers, or 'green pearls'. You can buy them at the Sunday morning market, one of Mallorca's largest, which spills out onto the streets around the church of Sant Miquel, with local pottery displayed on the church steps. It is a traditional Mallorcan town steeped in history and a short drive will take you to the coast with a wide range of wonderful sandy coves, beaches and the centre of Cala D'Or.
You only have to walk through its streets to realise the importance they held in other times. These days its habitants are a mixture of Mallorcans, people from all regions of the Spanish peninsular and increasingly large amount of non-Spanish residents. The Council organizes courses in Catalan, which are available to those who are interested in learning this language. There is a school for adults, a school of music, fire brigade, social security office, a cinema and a Cultural Centre that without a doubt is the best in the district, offering throughout the year many cultural events of all types, exhibitions, concerts and the presentation of books.
