Día de les Illes Balears
London School of Business and Research (LSBR), UK wishes all its learners on this Day of the Balearic Islands in Spain “Día de les Illes Balears” celebrated on the 1st of March.
Día de les Illes Balears (Day of the Balearic Islands) takes place each year on the 1st of March. It is marked by a public holiday to commemorate the signing of the Statute of Autonomy on March 1st, 1983 which granted autonomous status to the islands.
Celebrated on all four of the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera), Palma hosts the majority of the celebrations with thousands of proud residents taking to the streets. The day kicks off at Es Baluard Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art with a huge Medieval market selling traditional food and drinks as well as handicrafts and products from all over the island. Throughout the Day of the Balearic Islands various workshops and demonstrations take place as well as some performances from the local schoolchildren.
In Parc de Sa Feixina in Santa Catalina on this day you will find plenty of traditional food being cooked live in the park as well as plenty of food stalls. A great chance to sample fantastic Mallorcan cuisine, listen to some traditional folk music, and drink some hierbas with the locals. You may even spot some giants in traditional dress or some devils running around with fireworks.
It is the perfect day to get out on to the streets, mingle with the locals, and be proud to be on the Balearic Islands!
