The horse exhibition takes place on Sunday. | P. BERGAS


The farming, industry and commerce fair in Son Ferriol stands out because Palma doesn’t otherwise really do fairs of this type.

There are agricultural parts of the city, and Son Ferriol is one of them. The farming and livestock cooperative is active in organising the fair together with the local association for industry and commerce. It is a triumph of local organisation which does now get rather more institutional support from the town hall and the Council of Mallorca.

For the town hall, in fact, Son Ferriol is both traditional and one of Mallorca’s most important fairs. It is held in what is described as the “village within Palma”. It’s over two days, the main day being Sunday.
