Spring continues with agricultural fairs celebrating all things Mallorcan. Don’t miss the wine and cheese fair in Estellencs, guaranteed to be delicious, or the big paella picnic in Selva. Wine buffs line up to sample the best Spain and Mallorca has to offer at wine fairs in Palma and Pollensa, and the real ales flow at Palma beer festival.
For an atmosphere quite unlike anywhere else, head to Sóller for the town’s annual Battle of the Moors and Christians, celebrating the conquest of invading pirates in 1561. Capdepera’s Medieval Fair is similarly immersive: expect to see lots of dressing up and hear plenty of live music at both events.
