Capocorb has been an important centre since the prehistoric period; the Mallorcan archaeological site of the same name is proof of this. Having been the Islamic village of Jnjary, it enjoyed a period of splendour after the conquest. When James II inherited Mallorca, he planned to give it the status and privileges of a villa but the political instability made this impossible. With the difficulties of the subsequent centuries and the successive partitions of this large estate Capocorb has become what it is today… the calm, rural and little-known Mallorca that does not appear in tourist guides.

Llucmajor has followed the reverse process, sadly famous as the location of the battle after which Mallorca definitely became part of the crown of Aragón (1349). In the 16th century it was one of the few towns in the empire to have the privilege of holding fairs and markets but it did not gain city status until the 20th century. This municipality contains the most impressive Talayotic settlement on the island as well as traces of the life and work of Ramon Llull and the fascinating Pas de Vallgornera cave that is 67 km long.
