Marratxí is a municipality in the Raiguer region of Majorca, one of the Balearic Islands of Spain. Population: 28,237 Area: 54 km² (2005). It is also a station on the Majorca rail network.

The principal towns are Pont d'Inca (16,518), Pla de na Tesa (3,304), Pòrtol (2,640) and sa Cabaneta (5,748) - where the district council buildings are located. The population has increased rapidly since the mid 1990s due to the proliferation of new urbanizations around these villages. These developments have good road, and to a lesser extent rail, links to Palma. The first civil airfield on Majorca was Aeródromo de Son Bonet, which is located between Pont d’Inca and Pla de Na Tesa. The local economy is dominated by agriculture; however, significant employment is provided by traditional pottery manufacture and the large shopping complex at Pont d’Inca.
