This magical phenomenon occurs only twice a year and on two symbolic dates: the second of the second month, the feast of Candlemas, and the eleventh of the eleventh month, Saint Martin's Day. These two days, from eight o'clock in the morning, a unique light show takes place. | Youtube: Álex Picó
Two times a year, Palma Cathedral hosts a Festival of Light. Prior to and after the winter solstice, the positioning of the eastern rose window allows morning sunlight to pass through it and form a reflection below its smaller western counterpart. This will happen this Sunday, Candlemas, as it happens every year on the second of February. In autumn, the phenomenon occurs on the feast day of Saint Martin, the eleventh of November. The number of days before and after the solstice are the same.
