What can we visit in Llucmajor?
The “Placeta del Sabater” (Plaza del Zapatero) , popularly known as the “jardinet” (the garden), has a triangular surface and in its centre is a monument, made from Santanyí stone, which honours the shoemakers, which was Llucmajor’s main trade until the 70’s. The work of the sculptor Tomás Vila, inaugurated in 1963, represents differente scenes from this skilled trade.
The Statue of King Jaume III
In the centre of Llucmajor, visitors can admire buildings with character, modernist facades, which were built at the beginning of the 20th century, influenced by the current artisit movement of the moment. Among them are: “Ca Ses Xilenes” (house of the Chilenas), “Colón” Cafe, Antic Hotel España, Tabu Bar or “La Caixa” building.
The current parish church of Sant Miquel, work of the architect Isidro González Velázquez, was built in a Gothic style from 1386. The works began in 1784 and ended presumably towards 1866, the date that appears on the greater portal. In this church rested the mortal remains of King Jaume III before being transferred to Palma’s Cathedral.
The Fish Market (former fishmonger), was completed in 1916 and is the work of the architect Jaume Alenyar. The building is of modernist character, with a simple structure and a single floor with few decorative elements.Today it is houses Llucmajor’s Tourist Office.
The Convent and church of Sant Bonaventura was built between 1620 and 1656. The convent was built after the temple in the second half of the seventeenth century. The bronze statue of “S’Espigolera”, located at the front of the Convent of Sant Bonaventura, illustrates a girl with braids, dressed in the typical Majorcan costume and carryng a bundle of spikes. The monument is dedicated to Maria Antonia Salvá, poet of the city, whose poems describe life in the countryside.
