The Saladina Art Fest in Can Picafort was first held in October 2016. The idea behind this festival was revitalisation of the urban environment through art - giant murals on different types of building, including hotels. The first festival produced some fabulous work, and it keeps on coming.
Principal among the artists is Mallorcan Joan Aguiló, who basically organises the event in collaboration with Santa Margalida town hall, which has been developing Can Picafort as a centre for art - the sculptures by Pollensa’s Joan Bennàssar are other examples of this.
The festival has been switched to the spring. Over the past few days, new murals have been taking shape. This Sunday there will be a guided tour of the works. On Saturday, meanwhile, there will be a party with food trucks and live concerts.
