Adjacent to the Serra de Tramuntana, on the southeast slope of the mountain range between the peninsula of La Victoria and the urban region of the capital Palma, is the region of Es Raiguer. It is a transition zone from the mountains to the plain Es Plà in the center of Mallorca. Here there is plenty of water, but little flat, cultivable land.
The region of Raiguer and in particular the town of Inca are known as the center of shoe and leather crafts in Mallorca. The region has 123,046 inhabitants (as of 2007) and it also has a kind of center with Inca, although the municipality of Marratxi as a suburb of Palma has slightly more inhabitants. The third largest municipality is the town of Alcúdia on the bay named after it on the north coast.
