5 wonderful moments of the Day of the Balearic Islands in Mallorca

dia-baleares

This week has been the last of the festivities programme to celebrate the Day of the Balearic Islands and, as always, there was loads to see and do.

An intense week, full of curiosities, events and interesting activities related with the Mallorcan culture, all accompanied by great weather too!

Most of the activities took place in Palma but there was a lively crowd in every corner of the island.

We already shared the activities programme in last week’s post. This weekend we want to share with you some of our impressions on the route from Sa Feixina to the Parc de la Mar in Palma, along the narrow streets towards the Paseo Sagrera by the sea, full of market stalls with handcrafts, delicious food, local cosmetic products, dances, exhibitions, live stock and even paddle surf in the Parc de la Mar.

1.The atmosphere on the streets was something to be seen. A sea of colours, great smells, music and a lot of people.

2. The bread. The Mallorcan bread has its own taste. During the Day of the Balearic it has been present in all its forms and flavours.

3. The artisans. Blacksmiths, potters, glass, wicker and wool craftsmen.

ARTESANOS

4. The products. So much to see! Cosmetics made with Mallorcan aloe vera, local cheeses, wicker baskets, wrought iron works of art,…

5. The demons. Not only they were everywhere to encourage the celebration, but it was great to be able to admire the mask from close up.

Of course these are not the only highlights. Summarize this celebration is actually impossible, because there is so much to see and discover… If you love the island, It is really recommended to make your next trip to Mallorca coincide with this celebration.

Next year, we will let ourselves be surprised again by all the wonders of the Mallorcan culture. We hope you will celebrate it by staying with us!
