“Avarcas” of Menorca

For many years, the locals dedicated themselves to growing and harvesting wheat and looking after sheep. To allow themselves to move more comfortably over the rural floor, the abarcas were invented. Nowadays, the locals and tourists love these shoes. You can visit a local abarcas factory, because the company RIA does free guided tours of its factory in Ferrerías.
