Dimonis de Sa Pedrera in Muro on Friday.

17-06-2020Pilar Pellicer - Archive

At this time of the year, the fiestas would normally be getting into full swing. For obvious reasons they cannot. The first major fiestas of the summer are those for Sant Joan (Saint John the Baptist). One aspect of Sant Joan, the gatherings on beaches on Sant Joan Eve (23 June), will not be happening this year. Town halls have been announcing that beaches will be closed.

Programmes are very much reduced, and the number of people who can attend events will be limited. In Muro, the summer solstice demons' spectacular is taking place; it's on Friday.
