Inca is a town situated on the Spanish island of Majorca. The municipality's population is around 30,000 people (2012 census) on a land area of 58.4 km2 (22 ml2). There is also a junction station Majorca rail network featuring trains to Palma, island's capital, to Manacor and Sa Pobla. 

Historically, there were Talaiot settlements in this municipality, still inhabited under Roman rule until the 5th century. The town was called "Inkàn" during the Islamic period, and from it several vestiges remain, including the "sinies" and "ganats" ("foggara"), different systems used by the Arabs in order to draw underground water.

The town saw its peak at the beginning of 20th century, when due to the railway and installation of gas factory, leather industry started to arise, especially footwear manufacture (Inca is home of footwear company "Camper").

There is a market every Thursday in Inca, considered to be one of the major in Majorca. The most remarkable takes place on "Good Thursday" ("Dijous Bó") coinciding with town's trade shows and fairs.

As for the monumental heritage of Inca, the church of Santa María la Mayor must be pointed out, along with the old convent of Sant Domingo, convent of Sant Francesc and monastery of Sant Bartomeu.

The town is also famous for its wine cellars. From the 17th to 19th centuries Inca, just like neighboring Binissalem municipality, was a mass producer of wine, but phylloxera destroyed industry and the inhabitants turned to other activities like tanning and leather craftsmanship. Today many of the old wine cellars are used as restaurants for serving Mallorcan dishes like sopes tombet, mallorquines and gato d'ametlles.
