For many Inca equal Camper (shoes).
The outlet store RECAMPER is always worth a visit.
But hello, there is much more than shopping!
There is this cool museum telling the story of shoemaking in Inca.
Your museum guide.
The languages in the museum are Catalan, Castellan (Spanish)
Aber für die Deutschen gibt es natürlich Prospekte auf Deutsch.
We were totally surprised of the set up of this museum.
Already from outside pretty cool, and the exhibition is
also done very well, modern, there is space enough,
light and ... during corona times, the air condition
worked very efficiently, we did not take off our coats!
Here some details.
OMG Leningrad Cowboys shoes were made here as well???
Oriental and even Nordic shoes, I'd say.
Of course, Camper shoes as well.
Founded in Mallorca in 1975, Lorenzo Fluxa created Camper to
respond to the demand for a new and fresh style of footwear.
Camper's shoes are still designed and developed in Inca, in the rural heart
of Mallorca. Here a young creative team work alongside artisans to create
approximately 500 models each season.

Another special show.
Reskate Studio presents the installation “Community”, made specifically
by the Museum of the Footwear and the Industry from the construction
of a dark room that allows to recreate the darkness and luminosity
necessary to show, with photoluminescent paint, two versions of a same
image that symbolize the two faces of the same reality.
I tell you, get your bones moving, visit the local museums!
At least in Mallorca we can do it, and it is pretty safe,
anno other visitors were in the shoe museum today
when we visited it.

Well, otherwise Inca is a typical Majorcan town.
It is the third biggest town inn the island and famous
for the leather craftsmanship.
Many monuments and sculptures get lost if you visit the town
during the weekly market, on Wednesdays.
So, let's open the history books again.
Or let google do the work.
During boring corona times.
Yes also one a holiday paradise island there are problems.
Here women can search for help if the situation at
home gets too violent.
Earlier days there was a jewish colony also in Inca.
A Jewish population is known to have existed on Inca since Jaume I
conquered Majorca in 1229, although their presence had already been
reported by Severus, bishop of Menorca, in the 5th century.
The Jewish call can be found between Sant Francesc, Virtut,
Can Valella, Pare Cerdà, El Call, and La Rosa streets.
Am a bit cofused, when I check this location in my google map
it shows also a mosque in the area.
