As the kids head back to school and normal routine begins again, we want to inspire you with all that is happening on Mallorca over the next few months. One of my personal favourites is the Legends Cup, in which the tennis stars of yesteryears put on an entertaining spectacle for the audience; don’t miss it, from October 5th to the 8th at Palma Sport and Tennis Club.
The Legends Cup, part of the ATP Champions Tour event, is about to kick off. Pro tennis stars and officials met at Palma Sport & Tennis Club. […] Legends Cup 2019 has kicked off!
In September, a highlight of the cultural scene takes place on the 23rd, when the streets of Palma are packed for La Nit de l’Art. In November, we are looking forward to another dazzling edition of the Evolution! Mallorca International Film Festival – now in its sixth year. And speaking of movies, we have an insightful interview with the daughter and sister of Hollywood royalty, Allegra Huston, who is leading a Memoir Writing Workshop in Deià at the end of October.
A well-known lady who grew up here and is used to rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous is Diandra Douglas, first wife of Michael Douglas. We visited S’Estaca to hear Diandra’s plans to sell the finca and move on with her life.
And Hollywood really does come to Mallorca in this edition, with an interview with the contemporary artist Lorenzo Quinn – son of movie legend Anthony Quinn. Lorenzo is pushing the debate on climate change, with his much-talked-about installation in Venice: giant hands ‘supporting’ a fragile building. Quinn is currently exhibiting on Mallorca at Galeria K in Palma.
Alex Sobrón has a promising future; the young artist with strong views talks about the difficult situation globally and the lack of impact it is having on the artistic world – a must read!
In addition to a packed calendar of what’s happening during autumn, we have a review of a luxury hotel recently opened in Campos with two divine restaurants – certainly worth checking out. And we highly recommend you try ‘the Best Breakfast in the World’ the newly revived award-winning ‘desayuno’ at Maricel Hotel.
