The history of a town can also be explained through its stores and especially through the people in charge of them, families who have kept the business running up to now.
Emblemáticos de las Illes Balears represents recognition of these traditional stores that contribute to the uniqueness of urban spaces and, ultimately, of municipalities. This project is a promotional tool for emblematic stores, whose identification and visibility favour other neighbourhood businesses.

Commercial establishments focusing on one activity alone or offering a different and traditional regional product or service. In addition, stores open throughout the year that promote business all year round in the Balearic Islands are also included.
STORES WITH HISTORY
Establishments that have maintained the same commercial activity for 75 years or more. Exceptionally, stores more than 50 years old can also be considered.
STORES WITH HERITAGE
Commercial establishments that contain protected heritage elements included in the Metropolitan Urban Planning Plan (POUM). In the same way, interior and exterior elements are also taken into account although they are not listed, as they have significant architectural or heritage value. In addition, establishments with an immaterial value are also included, such as ephemeris or historical and social events that are important to the municipality.
Stores that are considered long-established businesses, with history and heritage and meet the three previous categories.
