Sant Llorenç des Cardassar is a small village deeply rooted in the traditions of rural Mallorca. It is located in a valley in the north-west of the island, in a unique natural, agricultural environment, but at the same time very close to the Mediterranean coast.
The possessions (Mallorcan agricultural estates) of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar are very characteristic of the late medieval period and reveal the deeply rooted rural traditions of this part of Mallorca. The weekly market is on Thursdays, in the church square. It offers a magnificent opportunity to buy local products and, in addition, to visit this magnificent baroque church.
Although the influence of tourism has been noticeable in recent years, especially in the coastal area, Sant Llorenç has managed to retain the most traditional trades, preserving the character of its streets and neighbourhoods. One of the most important was the embroidery industry, which reached considerable importance in the middle of the last century.
