Tennis star Rafael Nadal's hometown is especially well known for its pearl and furniture production.
Majorca's second largest city.
Located a bit inland on Majorca's east side, the island's second largest city was also one of its first settlements. Manacor has beaches, too, though they're several kilometres away from town, and much less crowded than those of Palma. Traditionally, the city has been known for its production of pearls, but it also has a historical side that makes it worth visiting — in fact, it has a wonderful archaeological museum, which traces the chronology from the first prehistoric settlements in the area until today. Manacor has also gained a certain notoriety in the last decade as the hometown of the tennis player Rafael Nadal.
