Manacor Things to Do

  • Mare de Déu dels Dolors, the main church

    Easy to find it, U´ll see it right from the road or railroad if U arrived on train. The church of la Mare de Déu dels Dolors, dates from the nineteenth century. Built on the site of earlier churches, the 75-metre-high belltower is Mallorca's highest and a symbol of the city. Enjoy walking nearby and take an orange juice in some of the nearby cafes.

Manacor Shopping

  • by ReginaldTrew Written Dec 3, 2010

    It is a very large, very interesting Arts/crafts shop next door to the Pearl museum/Factory.

    I want to find the name of the Arts/Craft Shop and its email address if possible as I wish to purchase one of their splendid models of the sailing Tea Clipper 'Cutty Sark'

    Can anyone please help? It would make an old sailor very happy and his partner even more so as she wants to get the model ship as a Christmas present for me

    Thank you in anticipation

    What to buy: There were some wonderful examples of arts/crafts too numerouse to list
    This shop is a complete and delightful contrast to its neighbour the PEARL MUSEUM

    What to pay: £100

  • Olive Art Exposition

    You will find this amazing place on the outskirts of Manacor, at Carretera Palma-Manacor. First thing you notice here is a group of giant dinosaurs on the square next to the store. It remains mystery to me what the dinosaurs have in common with olive wood; I guess that people who carved the beasts simply tried to catch visitors’ attention. And it...
