Sineu's Market in Majorca @ Sineu's Market | Sineu | Illes Balears | Spain

In 1306 King Jaume II inaugurated Sineu market and it has been open every Wednesday since. The locals visit the market mainly for live stock, fruits, vegetables, cheese, cold meats and tools, but they also shop alongside the tourists for clothing, leather bags, handcrafts, etc…

To visit Sineu market, you can travel either by train or by car (we advise parking near the train station) and prepare yourself for a full morning trading… it is a big market! The market has lots of atmosphere, as all the bars in town will be open, offering traditional Majorcan snacks such as “pa amb oli” (brown bread with oil, tomato and cheese or cold meats) or “frit” (traditional fried pork, potatoes, onion, liver, kidneys, peppers and tomatoes).

Sineu Market

During your visit the market, you’ll be able to also enjoy this royal town. You’ll walk around the stalls setup in the market square, continuing through the narrow stone streets going up to Sta Maria’s Church, passing the old “Palau dels Reis de Mallorca” (Kings of Majorca Palace), the Town Hall located in an old convent, and the surrounding streets where you’ll find crosses, medieval drinking wells / watering holes, and the monument to Francesc Alomar, a local cyclist who died in 1955.

Sineu’s Santa Maria Church

Santa Maria’s Church is dated from 1248, but after a serious fire, required to be rebuild in 1505 maintaining the original Gothic style. Next to the church, in front of the original cemetery, in the rectory, a medieval pottery exhibition can be visited.

The copper winged lion which you’ll see next to it dates from 1845 and represents Saint Mark.

The King’s of Majorca Palace was built by James II of Majorca in the 14th Century over the top of a Muslim building, as his second official residency. Nowadays cloister nuns inhabit the palace as since 1583.

On your way back to the car, stopping at the Art’s Centre, might be well worth your time to enjoy some contemporary artist’s exhibitions. The centre is located in the train station building, which dates from beginning of the 20th century.

Felanitx Market – Majorca @ Felanitx
Jun 7 all-day
Felanitx Market - Majorca @ Felanitx | Felanitx | Illes Balears | Spain

Felanitx is a fairly large town situated a few miles inland from Majorca’s east coast.

It takes about 20 minutes or so to get there from resorts such as Cala d’Or and Porto Colom by car.

In addition, there are both arranged trips and local bus services that will get you there. Felanitx market makes a great day out.

The best day to visit the market at Felanitx (pronounced fel-an-ich) is on a Sunday.

The local police close off the narrow streets that cut through the middle of the town, so that the many market folk can set out there wares on the temporary stalls they erect.

Stalls, Shops and Cafes

You need to make an early start though, the stallholders will have been there since about six o’clock, and especially in high summer, the heat will be getting unbearable if you leave it much after 10am!

The other thing is to allow plenty of time to walk down from the top of Felanitx market to the bottom taking in the many goods on sale as you go.

There are leather goods, clothing, shoes, toys and much more. The shops that are permanent fixtures in the streets are open too!

Once down in the main town square, there are plenty of outdoor cafes where refreshment may be taken – as indeed there are on the way down too!

Vendors selling all manner of snacks also punctuate the route and, as you shuffle down the narrow streets past all the stalls, many typical Mallorcan ‘fast foods’ can be found, such as cold meat pies (Empanadas).

Felanitx Market Square

As one approaches the main square, the haunting ‘pan’ pipe music will be heard performed by a group of musicians who both play the music and offer CD’s for sale featuring their repertoire – you can even buy your own pan pipes from them.

There is nothing better on a warm summer’s morning than relaxing in the square with a coffee and listening to the music.

Once fortified, you can them start the journey back to the ‘top’ of the market by retracing your steps and taking in the stalls you missed on the way down.

Don’t be afraid to haggle if you spot something you want to buy – a price can usually be arrived at!

The rule of thumb is – if there is no price displayed, they expect a ‘haggle’.

Don’t forget to have a look in the Felanitx Market Hall as well, you cannot miss it as it lies just behind the large church.

In there you will see fruit, fish and veg unlike the regimented shapes and sizes usually found in your local supermarket.

The market at Felanitx is a great way to spend a long lazy morning – give it a try if you can!

Nit de Foc (Night of Fire) in Majorca @ Nit de Foc (Night of Fire) in Majorca
Jun 19 @ 18:00 – 23:45
Nit de Foc (Night of Fire) in Majorca @ Nit de Foc (Night of Fire) in Majorca | Palma | Balearic Islands | Spain

This spectacular Nit de Foc festival happens on the third Friday in June in the grounds around the lake at Palma. If you are in Majorca at this time, the festival is a ‘must see’. You need to be in position just before dark and there are displays of Majorcan dancing and music as well as stalls for food and drink.

There are certain things to remember however, most of all make sure you have covering for your head and it is also advisable to protect the eyes as well. When the festival begins ‘Demons’ circulate amongst the crowd with burning torches which they swing at the crowd as they make their way towards the lake where they set bonfires alight. There are usually scaffolding towers on which drummers, also dressed as demons, wind up the drama with rhythmic drumming.

Once the demons have lit the fires, they come out amongst the crowd again this time they hold fireworks and run at the festival goers with them. It will be noticed that groups of people will congregate around the ‘demons’ while they hold the fireworks over their heads – it is known as ‘dancing with the devil’ – all the while the ‘demon drummers’ continue to belt out the rhythm.

Fireworks are set off on the scaffolding and on the lake as well as the many firecrackers around and above the crowd. This may all sound quite dangerous, but if basic precautions are followed to protect head and eyes, a good time can be had. The ‘demons’ are responsible people that have to be licensed and know how far to go. If you run away from them they will not pursue you very far!  If you have children you may be reluctant to join in, if so   you can always watch the festival from the road above the lake or from the sidelines.
