It is not the first time we say this but here we one once again: it pays off visiting Mallorca in winter. And even more in Christmas. There are a lot of plans to do in December and January. If you wonder what to do in Christmas holidays, keep on reading.
Streets lit by thousands of lights
End November Palma starts to bright and invites you to have a walk. There’s a nice party in Passeig del Born with a concert and thousands lights. All lights in Palma are turned on that day from Plaza Joan Carles I (known as “Turtles’ square”), Passeig del Born, Plaça de Cort, Plaça Major, Rambla, Plaça Espanya and much more. It won’t leave you indifferent. Palma is a magical city with no difference with cities such as Barcelona, London or Madrid.
One of the most original and traditional Christmas things are cribs representing Jesus birth and visiting the most known exposed ones is something traditional. Palma City Council has one of the most know and beautiful ones, Fundació March and La Misericordia also. For further information have a look at this post of Turisme Petit, a blog with nice activities for families in Mallorca.
These markets are perfect to have a walk to buy a new character for the crib or a nice decoration for your Christmas tree, or just to enjoy the ambience. These markets can be found in Plaça Espanya, Plaça Major and Rambla, the most emblematic places of Palma.
What else can you do in Palma in Christmas?
Christmas is time to visit Can Joan de s’Aigo. It is a tradition to go for an ensaimada and its famous hot chocolate, perfect for cold days.
You can ice skating at Parc de les Estacions. And if it is your first time, try it! It is so easy and funny. Something you have to try at least once in your life.
On January the 5th, the magic night where the Three Wise Men leave presents at home, you can see them live in a nice street parade colorful, with music and dance for the youngest, the favorite day for the children.
