Manacor is the second most important city in Mallorca and has a rich industrial history. Its city centre is considered to be a historical-artistic complex and preserves numerous examples of religious architecture. In the Muslim era the district of Manqür included up to 172 villages and farmsteads but its most interesting period runs from the late antiquity to the Bronze Age. The basilica of Son Peretó, the Hospitalet Vell archaeological site (with its rectangular building, talayot and twin navetas) and the Torre dels Enagistes are some architectural forms that cannot be seen anywhere else.
The Manacor History Museum also offers a wide and very varied range of activities. The Talayotic settlement of s´Illot, in the neighbouring locality of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, completes this itinerary.
