Celebrate the Dia de las Islas Baleares02/29/2020
At the Day of the Balearic Islands on 1st March, all four islands dress up for their big day. The festival provides a full programme of activities for all audiences.
Every year around 1st March, the Balearic Islands organise activities around culture, sports and gastronomy to celebrate their Statute of Autonomy, proclaimed in 1983 and renewed in 2007.
The Day of the Balearic Islands offers a rare opportunity to explore the main government buildings, museums and the most emblematic places of the islands. Monasteries, art galleries, museums and buildings such as the Consell de Mallorca, Palma City Council, Bellver Castle, the Balearic Islands Parliament and the Mallorca Cathedral open their doors to visitors.
A food tasting is organised at the Sa Feixina park in Palma with the participation of different restaurants, located on the Passeig Sagrera, by the seafront, near La Lonja. At this market you will find local artisanal crafts and food.
Menorca features a tour of the Milà wind farm, harness racing in the Maó Hippodrome, Menorcan dressage sampling in es Castell and guided tours of stunning places such as the Cova des Coloms, plus musical performances.
Ibiza holds interesting activities like the Balearic Optimist Regatta at Club Nàutic Santa Eulària, basketball and chess tournaments, trotting awards and an artisanal market in the Sant Rafael Hippodrome, with guided tours of the Puig des Molins Monographic Museum.
Formentera hosts sporting events, concerts, exhibitions and serves a huge typical paella.
