A Brief History of Fœnalicius

It is said that the first settlers lived in caves near where we now find Felanitx, at about 4,000 years ago. When the Romans came to Mallorca, they also passed through Foenalicius as it was known then. After the Romans, the Vandals arrived and then, the Byzantines. In 1300, King James II of Mallorca granted charter to Felanitx and other vilas on the island. The image was borrowed from an old postcard, possibly from around 1910.
