Over the centuries, the municipalities that make up the Serra de Tramuntana have created a wide-ranging festive and cultural heritage, which includes both religious and pagan or commemorative celebrations. A visit to the festivals of the Serra de Tramuntana villages is a fun way of discovering tradition, local character and joy.
The Moors and Christians battles of Pollença and Sóller stand out for their spectacular nature. And for its uniqueness, the Canto de la Sibila, a 13th-century chant that is performed in the parishes during matins mass. On Good Friday, the descent of Jesus from the cross is staged in Pollença, and processions take place in most towns. In the summer, there is a string of patron saint festivals that bring together locals and neighbours, with a diverse programme that includes traditional dances and popular open-air lunches or dinners.
