The descent of the crow for the Sant Antoni fiestas in Mancor de la Vall. | P. PELLICER
“What on earth is there to do in Majorca during the winter?” That was exactly what most of our friends were asking when we first announced our move to the island over fifteen years ago. I think they imagined us shivering by frozen swimming pools, clutching lilos whilst waiting for the sun to shine again! Little did they know, through their own ignorance, that Majorca is not merely a sunny, summer holiday destination, but a thriving, culturally rich island showcasing gastronomy, music and the arts along with a wealth of traditions and a plethora of fiestas which actually don’t come into play until the winter months when all the seasonal tourists have long gone.
