Under pressure: the week in Majorca

Under pressure: the week in Majorca

Exceltur was once more pointing the finger at holiday rentals; the cost of travel could go up because of an EU directive; an aid package for Son Banya residents was announced; and Arta had an issue with one of its demons.



What's on in Majorca: 15-21 January

The biggest fiestas week of the year - Sant Antoni, Sant Sebastià and not forgetting Sant Honorat. Demon correfocs - Algaida (Monday); Alaro, Alcudia, Muro, Santa Maria (Tuesday); Palma (Sunday). And there's all the other stuff - Sa Pobla's pyromusical, the traditional blessings of animals, the climbing of the pine in Pollensa (and Puerto Pollensa), the music stages in Palma.
