Marratxí, Balearic Islands, Spain

🇪🇸 Marratxí is a municipality in the Raiguer region of Majorca, one of the Balearic Islands of Spain. It is also a station on the Majorca rail network. It became a municipality in 1932. There is no central town in the municipality; instead, it is an agglomeration of the villages of Pont d'Inca, Pla de na Tesa, Pòrtol and Sa Cabaneta - where the district council buildings are located.

Economy The local economy is dominated by agriculture; however, significant employment is provided by traditional pottery manufacture and the large shopping complex at Pont d’Inca. Marratxí's population has increased rapidly since the mid-1990s due to the proliferation of new developments around the historical villages, since the municipality has good road—and to a lesser extent rail—links to nearby Palma.
