Officially, the autonomous region of the Balearic Islands has 12 holidays per year, aside from those particular days (one or two) that every town or village has to commemorate its patron saint.
Mallorca has a series of folk dances that are very simple and captivate all kinds of public. In the past, when people had finished the harvest of grapes, the harvest of olives or the reaping of wheat, farm workers used to celebrate the moment eating, drinking and dancing ancient folk dances. This is how folklore was born.
Glosses are part of the Mallorcan oral tradition. They are a clever way of interpreting the daily reality that marks moments of freedom or repression. Glosses are very important in Mallorca’s countryside, where the past lack of cultural education was compensated by gaining popular wisdom, which was conveyed sarcastically and mischievously through the glosses.
In Mallorca there is an important craft tradition. Handmade embroideries, olive tree Wood carving, wrought iron, siurells, hand blown glasswork, palm and raffia leaves articles, cultured pearls (Manacor), ceramics, clay, footwear, imitation jewellery creations… they are all extraordinary traditions.
Mallorcan gastronomy has historically been tied to its history. It is the result of the heritage of the Roman, Hebrew, Muslim and Catalan cultures, and also the result of the English, German and even Asian current gastronomic influence.
