There is nowhere quite like the island of Majorca during those summer months. With the blazing sunshine, soaring temperatures, friendly locals, stunning scenery and unrivalled beaches, Son Julia Country House & Spa guarantees that after a holiday here with us, summer will never be the same again.
Some of Majorca’s best-hidden secrets are the summer festivals which take place in every city and town on the island, no matter how small or quaint. These summer parties are known locally as ‘Verbenas’ and with so many taking place between the months of June and October it is sadly impossible to see them all. However here at your boutique hotel in Llucmajor, we offer you some advice on the best celebrations in Majorca for food, dancing and experiencing all the unusual traditions.
One of the first and most beautiful celebrations to take place this summer is the Flower Power verbena in Llubi. This quaint inland town becomes bursting with hippie power, flowers, colour and good music. Taking place on the 8th of June, those who join in can expect a party like no other on the island.
For those looking for some culture in the form of the finest artwork then Majorca is the place for you with two of our favourite summer holiday celebrations being centred around the celebration of local artwork. Artdemossa in the picturesque village of Valldemossa is one of the summer’s most well known evening parties. The narrow streets are full of people exploring the 4 different categories, which are sculpture, paintings, photographs and music from all over the world. So peruse the art, purchase some typical souvenirs and try the tempting traditional snacks from across the island this July.
If this didn’t quench your thirst for the arts then visit Palma de Majorca during the month of September for the magical Nit de l’Art, in which practically each street becomes an art gallery, with museums and galleries also offering free entry. Grab a glass or two of cava and stroll around the open-house galleries as Palma’s streets bustle during a sophisticated evening of culture.
If you are looking for a different type of art in the form of local delicacies of food and drink then Fira Dolca is a great event that you shouldn’t miss. Taking place in Esporles, another one of Majorca’s most picture postcard towns set in the Tramuntana mountains, the air delights with the delicious sugary scent of traditional sweet foods including cakes, pastries, jams and sweets. Taking place in October, it is technically one of the first winter festivals in Majorca, but we felt it more than worth a mention.
If it’s not food you are looking for but rather a new favourite tipple, then Es Vermar is the one for you. This festival offers you the chance to taste the best wines from Majorca. The island has gradually become well known for its quality wines, which has led to the growth of this charming festival in September in Binissalem.
With countless other festivals taking place, the list goes on and on, although some other mentions include the Inca Jazz Festival and the Deia International Music Festival which both take place in July and are the best places on the island to appreciate some live music. Another celebration, which is also an experience not to be missed, takes place in Santa Margalida in honour of the patron saint Santa Catalina Tomas to commemorate her beatification by Pope Pius V1 and involves the town being transformed into a colourful party with processions, dancing, music and wine.
