A touch of the traditional on Mallorca’s Angel Sunday

Easter celebrations on the island of Mallorca continue until the Sunday after the event, when the capital city of Palma de Mallorca indulges in Domingo del Angel, or Angel Sunday.

This free event includes a procession as well as lots of traditional Majorcan food, which makes the most of the island’s abundance of vegetables, including a native tomato called a Ramallet.

However, Angel Sunday is not all about culinary pleasures, with the standard Spanish festival practices of music, parties and fancy dress all well represented.

Visitors are advised not to party too hard however – festivities start in the wee small hours, when locals and tourists alike join in a walk from the town hall to the Castillo de Bellver, where the fun really starts.

The Angel Sunday celebrations have their roots in the 15th century, when the Festividad del Santo Custodio de Palma would feature a procession, along with a handing out of blessed bread to the poor.
