Etiqueta 'Sardine burial'
The Portol "sardine" isn't buried; it goes on the bonfire.


What's on in Majorca: 27 February-5 March

Celebrations for Balearics Day, which is 1 March but stuff is happening before then. Carnival comes to an end with the "burial of the sardine" (the ceremony in Portol, Marratxi is the best known). Marratxi is the place for one of Majorca's more important fairs - the "fira fang" (ceramics), which starts on Saturday.
