Of the history of Inca the most outstanding part is the title of when it was given the title of 'city' which was conceded in the year 1900, by the Regent Queen María Cristina: 'Wanting to give evidence of My Royal appreciation of the village of Inca of the Balearic province for its increase in population and development of its agriculture, industry and commercial activities and constant loyalty to the Monarchy, in name of my son Augusto Don Alfonso XIII and as Regent of the Kingdom, I grant the title of 'city'. Conceded in Palace the 13 of March of the year 1900. I the Regent Queen'.
Inca is to be found in the central part of Majorca, where it is locally called, 'el pla' or 'lo llano' (flat), very near to the Tramuntana Mountain Range.
The parish church of Santa Maria la Major of Inca of Baroque style was built in the year 1248. The present church dates back to the XVIII and is the third one which occupies the same site. On the inside there is a Gothic painting of Joan Daurer of the year 1373.
Other places of interest in the municipality of Inca are the Convento Dominicano de Santo Domingo, the Church of San Francisco and its cloister, the Puig de Santa Magdalena and the Convento de Sant Bartomeu.
Inca is a city known for its shoe industry and its leather industry, with brand names such as Barrats, Lottusse, Cámper, Georges, Farrutx y Munper. The food industry also plays an important role in Inca thanks to companies such as Can Guixe and Quely, famous for its 'ensaimadas' and biscuits made with oil which are very traditional in Majorca.
Inca has its own train and bus stations, situated very close together. The means of transport offer a very good regular service with Palma and the rest of the island.
