Inca hosts this fiery fiesta every year, with a separate correfoc for children and adults. It marks the beginning of a fun-filled month for the central Mallorcan town.
What to expect
A correfoc is a recurring element in Mallorca’s festive calendar. It’s a form of street theatre which dates back to the medieval ages and represents the fight of good against evil. For those who have never witnessed it, it looks dangerous and more than a little insane. It involves amateur actors dressed up as devils, with creative masks and twisted horns, brandishing tridents which are hissing with fireworks. While some devils enthral the crowds with the fiery antics, others sneak up on unsuspecting bystanders to make them jump. The constant drumming adds to the thrill.
At IncFern, there will be a kids’ correfoc at 19.00, and adults at 23.00. This fiesta takes place the weekend before Dijous Bo, Inca’s traditional fair which is the largest on the island.
