At Son Brull one of the things we enjoy the most from Mallorca and its people, is the fact that tradition and culture keep playing an important role to build the identity of this beautiful Island. As we have told you in some previous occasions, we are really into Mallorca’s history and would love to be a part of the active members of the community who actually do something to preserve its tradition, species and local products. At Son Brull we do that by being a part of the global ‘Slow Food’ movement.
But today we are not here to talk about general Majorcan traditions, but about one very special and particularly close to our hotel and hearts. We are talking about the ‘Pollensa fair’, a fair that for centuries (the first written document about this fair dates back to 1784) has been the most important festivity in Pollensa and that in 2017 will take place from November, the 11th to November, the 13th. And it’s just that there is no more authentic activity to get to know the character and identity of the Majorcan people, than visiting this traditional fair.
At the Pollensa fair you’ll find an interesting mix of gastronomy, local crafts, herbs and plants, animals and even traditional home décor of Mallorca’s North all over the streets of this beautiful town that invites residents and visitors to connect with the real and pure Majorcan character.
During the weekend of the ‘fira’, which always takes place on the fourth Sunday after San Lucas, which is normally the second Sunday of November, the Santo Domingo convent, Plaza Mayor, Plaza a les Munnares and many other important spots are filled with exhibitors offering a varied sense of what Pollensa has been and is.
During the Pollensa fair you will not only be able to stroll around the town discovering Mallorca’s essence, but also enjoy Street art, shows and other fun activities, which are announced by the Pollensa city hall during the previous days. We cordially invite you to take a look at the program, by checking it out on Pollensa’s website.
If you would like for us at Son Brull Boutique Hotel & Spa to organize transport to Pollensa during the fair days, don’t hesitate to come to one of our team members.
