This is a great time of the year to visit the island of yacht charter Mallorca. Well outside the tourist season, you’ll encounter much of the local lifestyle as well as numerous traditions, without bumping into loud tourists as might happen during the hot season.
Sant Antoni is the patron saint of animals which means the feast is mostly celebrated in the small villages around Mallorca like Arta, Sat Joans and Sa Pobla. These celebrations include grand processions and parades, not to mention daytime celebrations or blessings of animals in local churches.
Other manifestations of the Sant Antoni festival are giant puppets being chased around the streets by painted devils, which is surely a sight to be seen and admired. When all the traditions are finished, you’ll be able to witness the real fiesta, with people organizing street parties with live music and drinks on the tap, a lot of singing and dancing in general and a lot of people having fun.
This is only one of the first festivals in the year in Mallorca, generally taking place in January of every year. It also is celebrated in other parts of Spain too, but for a real traditional experience, we invite you to yacht charter Mallorca with the promise that you haven’t seen anything like this before.
