Information and situation to Santa Maria del Camí
Santa Maria del Cami is situated in the north-west of Majorca. Originally the small locality was founded by the Moors. In the times of the Romans there was a passage road from Palma to the old Pollentia (Alcudia). Translated the name “Saint Mary of the way” means – perhaps because the village was the first rest stop on the way from Palma in the north. Or maybe the name derives from the chapel of the same name in Catalonia that was under patronage of family Santaeugenia. A member of the family was the first ruler of the area and he gave to the residential area the name.
The name suits perfectly to the small town. The Santamariers – how the navites call themselves – operate above all textile trade and retail trade. They are going to make the old tradition of weaving alive again. Here they still produce the typical “Teixit de Llengos” – a white kerchief on the burning tongues.
