Jack the giant killer would have had a field day in Palma yesterday, but the giants which took over the city centre were peaceful and their only intention was to bring a smile to the face of onlookers, which they did. Some of the figures were historical, such as those of the Council of Majorca representing King Sancho and King Jaume III, who once ruled over the island. Others represented country folk. Some of the giants had travelled quite a way to be here for the event, coming from as far afield as Tarragona, Zaragoza and even France. Others belong to the city of Palma. The parade and the stately dance by the giants, who were accompanied by pipers, is one of the highlights of the city's Sant Sebastià fiestas, in honour of its patron, which come to an end today.
