1. The Weather
Mallorca enjoys temperatures around ten degrees more than any northern European city and at least 6 or 7 hours of daylight.
2.The Christmas Lights
Every street, plaza and avenue sparkles with light and Palma should win first prize of any city in Europe for the best display at this festive time of year. The Christmas lights in Palma will be switched on Thursday, November 23 at 8pm.
3. The Christmas Markets
Christmas markets in and around Palma run from early December until the festival of ´The Three Kings`on 5th January. Favourites are the Portals Nous Christmas Market ( 15th December – 6th January) and Port Adriano Ice Park and Market – dates to be confirmed this year.
The market at Portals with its glitzy shops and restaurants fits right in, with stall holders travelling from all over Europe to bag a spot here. So take a trip to a market and stroll around the tinselled stalls sipping mulled wine.
Call into the vast market in Plaza Mayor with stalls selling with souvenirs and a wide selection of traditional hand painted Nativity figures known as “Belens”.
Leather goods, jewellery, designer fashion or home furnishings, Palma has it all. Wander along the chic colonnaded Avenida Jaime III, stroll along the beautifully lit Passeig del Borne and explore the quaint streets of the Old Town to discover numerous unique and beautifully decorated shops.
In Advent season Mallorcan Christmas recipes, passed down through generations, are displayed at many of the eateries around Palma. The Christmas holiday itself starts with a family dinner on Christmas Eve and doesn’t let up until the final slice of Roscón de Reyes cake is finished on Three Kings Day on January 6.
Come and join in the fun. Salut! Festes de Nadal !
