Rafael Nadal Barceló, number 14 on the Popular Party list for Parliament, is one of Marga Prohens’ new bets to try to reach the Consolat, but also one of the most international lineages in Mallorca. He is the cousin of the tennis player Rafael Nadal and the son of the influencer and businesswoman Maria Barceló.
Nadal Barceló has followed in the footsteps of his father, also called Rafael and surnamed Nadal Homar, who was a councilor of the Manacor City Council with the conservative formation and a deputy during the first legislature of Francina Armengol.
Rafael Nadal Homar, brother of former soccer player Miquel Àngel Nadal and Toni Nadal, coach of one of the best tennis players of all time. His name was on the list of José Ramón Bauzá. On his maternal side, Rafael Nadal Barceló, a Law graduate, also has media relatives.
His mother María has become a reference in the networks. Through Instagram, she shows “the quiet Mallorca, the one that flees from the masses”, as she explains in a recent interview published in this newspaper.
María Barceló Oliver is the sister of Bartomeu Barceló, Spain’s longest-serving chief prosecutor in the office. On July 31, 2002, she took office, for the first time, as head of the Balearic Islands Prosecutor’s Office and recently completed 20 years in office. Without a doubt, she is quite an institution.
