The celebrations in honour of Palma’s  patron saint, Saint Sebastian got under way on Saturday night and reached its climax  last night, the eve of Saint Sebastian which is today,  with the traditional  night of  live music  in the city centre  the hundreds of foguerons, or BBQs,    for the tens of thousands of people who braved the cold to dance the night away, cook some typical Majorcan fare on the BBQs while also keeping warm. Saint Sebastian was a Christian saint and martyr, who is said to have been killed during the Roman emperor’s persecution of the Christians.
