When you enter the door of the typical Aunt Emma shop, which is lovingly run by Maria, you enter a mini department store that leaves nothing to be desired.
Petanca / Boule:
Petanca belongs to the boule family. The ball game, which originates from Provence, belongs to Mallorca like the sobrassada.
Every Sunday at 5 pm, the new boule court in the village is a convivial place where the petanca balls fly.
Art & crafts
“A good picture captures you and never lets you go!”
Axel Kentsch has developed as an autodidact to an exceptional artist.
Llatra is the name of the ancient craft tradition of basket weaving made from the leaves of the Mallorcan dwarf palm Garballó. It is one of the oldest and most original handicrafts on Mallorca, and is still practised in Capdepera and Artà.
The palm leaves are cut from mid-June to the end of July and then dried in the sun. Once they have taken on a yellowish-white colour, they are sorted by quality and divided into finer strands. A mixture of chlorine and water is used to soak the palm strands and then sulphurised, which makes them flexible and further bleaches them. The soft leaves processed in this way are called palmitos, which are then plaited into approximately four centimetre wide braids or bands of “trenzas” – the basis for all
They are used to weave baskets, bags, hats, lamps and other objects. As they dry, they contract, giving them a special stability and high quality – so that they can be loaded heavily and do their job for years. Traditional wickerwork can be bought at many markets throughout the island.
In the castle of Capdepera, one of the largest fortifications on Mallorca, you will find the “Museo de sa llata” with a lot of information and exhibits from the history of palm leaf weaving.
In old houses on Mallorca you can still very often find cement tiles, in Spanish “baldosa hidráulica”. They owe their typical tendril patterns to Art Nouveau, rounded and natural shapes that characterised the architecture at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century.
In the past, almost every place on the island had its own factory for cement tiles, but they are more complex and expensive to produce and were therefore replaced by cheaper ceramic tiles in the 1960s and 1970s.
Their manufacturing process is complex and fascinating at the same time: each individual tile is constructed by hand in three layers: The top layer gives colour and design. The middle layer consists of a mortar with fine sand as well as Portland cement and provides stability. And the lower layer is a porous mixture that provides a certain impact resistance.
