Snails. Well, do you or don’t you? Eat them, that is. In Mallorca, snails are something of a tradition associated with Saint Mark. The Sineu Fair, which was last weekend, tied in - as it always does - with the feast of Saint Mark. Snails featured in Sineu, but in the Sant Jordi (Saint George) district of Palma they are the main theme.
Sant Jordi's annual snail fair.
It was not alone among Mallorcan municipalities in having been declared a “vila” by King Jaume II at the turn of the fourteenth century, but Capdepera makes the most of this mediaeval connection by holding an annual Mediaeval Market.
No, cows’ week has nothing do with sailing, it has everything to do with cows - Friesians to be exact. A highlight of the Campos May Fair is the contest for Friesians, a tradition of the fair for more than forty years.
Pollensa wine fair.
In the summer of 1999, a group of friends formed the Associació Vi Primitiu de Pollença. "Primitive" doesn't mean how it may sound, as it was used to transmit the notion of simplicity and of being synonymous with the fruit of the land - grapes for wine. It was suggested by the poet Miquel Bota Totxo.
