A visit to Palma never disappoints. The cultural capital of the Mediterranean conquers the traveler with everything they can dream of. In January, the city celebrates the festivities of Sant Sebastià, patron saint of Palma de Mallorca. From 13 to 21 January, the Balearic capital offers during these dates unique events and a wide mosaic of traditions that combine culture, leisure and tradition perfectly.
For more than a week, a great variety of events take place throughout the city. The most celebrated and popular act is the "revetlla de Sant Sebastià", a festival held on the night of January 19. The traditional "foguerons”, where people gather around a bonfire to roast sobrasada and butifarrones, as well as other typical Mallorcan sausages, illuminate the night, while musical performances animate streets and squares in the city. This year, over thirty bands and artists, mostly Mallorcan, will fill the streets with music with live performances across the seven stages scattered around the main squares of the city.
The festival program includes dozens of activities aimed at both residents and visitors. Parades, concerts, theatrical performances, exhibitions, religious events and fireworks throughout the bay, without a doubt a celebration that no one can miss. Do not forget the Correfoc, a parade of Dimonis (devils) in which hundreds of pyrotechnic fires are launched. The public participates in the party dancing with the dimonis and enjoying the show. This act puts an end to the Fiestas de Sant Sebastià.
