Situated in the south of the island, Llucmajor is the largest municipality in Mallorca with a total surface area of 327 km2. Boasting a privileged location on the Bay of Palma, it is also one of the preferable regions for residence as the tourism has not taken over here as strongly as in the south-west.

Nonetheless, Llucmajor is a perfect central location for those property buyers who would like to be in a close proximity to beautiful beaches, outdoor activities, countryside scenery and admire wonderful sea views.

Along its coastline, there are several sought-after residential areas such as Son Verí, Bahia Grande, Cala Blava and Puig de Ros. Near the coast and closer inland, you will find a diverse range of properties such as historical manor houses, traditional Mallorcan fincas and contemporary villas.

Llucmajor lies adjacent to the neighbouring municipalities of Campos, Algaida, Montuïri, Porreres and Palma de Mallorca. Conveniently, it is just 21km from the Son Sant Joan International Airport and 24km from the city of Palma.

The municipality consists of 16 towns and some important resort areas, including s’Arenal and Cala Pí. Its central point is the historical town of Llucmajor that is also famous for the lively market and variety of useful shops.

Traditionally, Llucmajor’s economy was based on agriculture and craftsmanship (stone masonry, wood & iron). In the 20th century, it also developed into an important manufacturing centre specializing in leather goods and footwear in particular.

The scenery of Llucmajor comprises mountains and cultivated fields with orange, lemon and olive groves. Here you’ll also find beautiful coves and cliffs with amazing coastline sea views.

Much of what the region has to offer ties closely with the rural Mallorcan way of life. The area provides relaxation and a variety of facilities for outdoor activities such as golf, hiking, cycling and water sports.

If you wish to relax the days away, the southern coast boasts many stunning calas with turquoise sea and sand or gravel beaches. Here, you’ll find S’Arenal, the last stretch of Playa de Palma, the sandy cove of Cala Pí and many rocky sea accesses.

Along the Llucmajor coastline, there are several 16th century defensive stone towers which now serve as excellent viewpoints. Some of the most well-preserved watch towers are found in the areas of Cala Pí, S´Estalella, and Cap Blanc.

There are also several impressive historic sites located in the region. The main is Randa Massif where the sanctuary of La Mare de Déu de Gràcia was founded in the 15th century. In addition, the archaeological settlement of Capocorb Vell is one of the most important remains of the prehistoric settlements in the western Mediterranean.

Llucmajor is very interesting historically as it also was the scene of one of the most famous battles on the island. During it, King Jaume III of Mallorca has lost in a fight against the troops of Pedro IV of Aragon. A statue commemorating the King can still be seen at Paseo de Jaime III.

Throughout the year, there are several festivities celebrated in the region with the most popular being the fiesta of Santa Cándida, held in the second week in August. It features various cultural events and the parade of the striking paper maché giants.
In winter, the festivity of the patron saint of animals (Saint Anthony) is held with songs, street bonfires, and pork sausages cooking.
