History and culture in Llucmajor 

This ordinary country town, the largest in southern Mallorca, has a place in history: it was the site of the battle in 1349 where Pedro IV of Aragon killed his relative Jaume III to end Mallorca's brief spell as an independent kingdom. Jaume's death is commemorated by a statue at the end of Passeig Jaume III.
It is also the closest town to the impressive Bronze Age Capocorb settlement, which has been hailed as one of the most significant prehistoric villages in the western Mediterranean.
