Are you thinking of seeing in the New Year in a different way? Do you want to welcome 2024 in the best possible way? Don’t leave everything to superstitious rituals, plan your getaway to Palma, and start the year off on the right foot. At Christmas time, the city ‘dresses up’, with decorations, garlands and soft lighting that will make you feel like you’re part of a fairytale. Especially in places as emblematic as Passeig del Born, where there is a truly Christmas atmosphere. So much that it is one of the most photographed sites, by visitors and locals alike.
The enthusiasm of the younger children and the nearly two hundred craft stalls spread throughout the city for the Fira de Nadal i Reis (Christmas and King’s Fair) intermingle with the aromas of roasting chestnuts and hot chocolate in the streets of the historic centre. At the doors of Can Joan de s’Aigo, one of the city’s historic shops, people wait their turn to savour the traditional chocolate with ‘ensaïmada’ or churros with the family. Do you want some advice? When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
The route through Palma’s nativity scenes is also a ‘must’ for the more nostalgic, who will find an endless number of stalls in the Plaça Major with all kinds of exhibits and trees of different sizes. Nearby, in the central Plaza de Cort, the people of Palma also gather as a custom, to hear and enjoy the twelve chimes on 31 December at midnight. If you want to join in with this exciting celebration, all you need to bring is 12 grapes, a party bag (hats, streamers, etc.) and a desire to have fun! At twelve o’clock sharp, hugs and fireworks herald the New Year in style.
