If what you enjoy is getting to know new places, different customs or you plan to buy a new property in Mallorca, Pollensa’s la Patrona is one of the celebrations this summer that you can’t miss. It is one of the most well-known celebrations in the area of the North of Mallorca. It begins at the end of July and finishes at the start of August. The Patrona is always full of fun so that everyone can enjoy it.
Every celebration has an explanation and this one more than any, given that the mother of God of the angels is the patron saint of the town. To understand the celebration you have to take yourself back to the May of 1550. Joan Mas was the man who ran out on to the main road to alert everyone of danger and to come face to face with the opponents, asking the patron saint to help the town.
On the 2nd of August a simulation takes place to recreate this historical event which was incorporated into the event's programme midway through the 19th century.
The main square is an important location in the celebrations of the Patrona. The night of the 1st of August la Alborada is carried out, a local hymn which is interpreted by Pollensa’s Music Band. At midday on the 2nd of August in the same square the dance of the dame and the cossiers (traditional dancers) is celebrated. Where you can experience some of the best popular Mallorcan dances right from your home thanks to your real estate agency in Pollensa.
The 2nd of August is the day that marks the end of la Patrona. It is the most anticipated day given that it carries out the simulation of the battle of the moors and the Christians. This is celebrated to commemorate the battle of the Pollensins against 1.500 moors who were led by the privateer Dragut, which took place 467 years ago.
The simulation aims to recreate a historic event which is still very present in the memory of the Pollensan locals, constituting a very attractive celebration in which practically the whole town take part in. At Pollentia Properties we recommend that you take a look at our fincas for sale in the area of La Font.
