The popular culture and traditions of a place can be understood much better by experiencing their biggest celebrations. Palma, like all European cities, has its own special day marked on the calendar for its patron saint: Sant Sebastià. This festivity brings together thousands of people in the busiest streets of the Mallorcan capital, in which cars disappear and a river of music and joy fills each and every one of its most special corners. Our hotel in Palma town, Brondo Architect Hotel, can be found in the epicentre of these celebrations and serves as the perfect starting point to not miss any of the activities. Would you like to know what characteristics define the iconic celebration of Sant Sebastià? We will be giving you all the details in this blog article.
The eve of the 19th of January and a city alive with the rhythm of music
We are spiritual nomads and we let art take us wherever it may lead us. We are so proud to have a hotel in Palma old town. Its cultural offer is eclectic and events such as Sant Sebastià show this in such a glorious way. Although the day of the patron saint of Sant Sebastià is on the 20th of January, the Fiestas of Sant Sebastià take place between the 13th and the 21st of January, including both days. These are days in which institutional and popular activities intertwine to create an extremely interesting cultural offer. Perhaps the day with the most media coverage is the eve of the 19th of January, during the early hours of the 20th, in which most of Palmas squares create big stages and up to 28 artists play to hundreds of viewers in the iconic plazas of Rei Joan Carles I, plaza de Cort, plaza de España, plaza de la Reina, plaza del Olivar, plaza Major and sa Feixina. Each of these squares can be easily accessed from our boutique hotel in Palma de Mallorca.
