In many Spanish countries, there are a plethora of fiestas to enjoy throughout the year, and Mallorca is no exception to this! Each fiesta has its own charm and personality, each laced in its own meaning. The most impressive displays are found in Pollensa and Soller. To attend these special events is to fully immerse yourself in local culture, and everybody is made welcome.
The food is usually the focal point, and great feasts take place in a celebratory way to mark the occasion. Popular dishes are based on hearty, peasant fare steeped in local tradition and rooted in local ingredients. Locally made sausages and cured ham, alongside plenty of almond based dishes and fish. The olives here are truly delicious and coupled with local breads, make for a delightful appetiser.
