Travel Tips for Artá

Festivals and popular traditions

by russian_yaz

Handicrafts made from palmito leaves are Artà's most important point of artisan reference. Baskets, hats and other products delight tourists, who visit the municipality to discover how tradition is harmoniously combined with modernity.

The holiday season begins with a celebration in honour of Sant Antoni de Pàdua on June 13. Various events are held around this date: children strung with little bells run through the village, Els cavallets i la Dama, a dance of uncertain origin and tremendous visual attractive, is performed and the villagers go on a pilgrimage.

On June 29, Colònia de Sant Pere's patron saint's day, popular activities are held over several days and a singular maritime procession takes place.

Artà celebrates its patron saint's day, Sant Salvador, on August 6, with a series of most unusual events, like the marathon that climbs up and down the stairs of Puig de Sant Salvador at midnight or the watermelon-eating competition.

The winter holiday cycle begins on January 16 and 17, with the fiesta of Sant Antoni. Masked devils come out on the street in the morning, a symbol of the temptations that pursued the saint. Criticism and irony are present both in its folksongs as well as at the S'Argument recital.

Bonfires are lit at night that last until dawn. Villagers gather around them to eat botifarrons, or blood sausages, and laugh at the verses the singers compose, which aer humorous, erotic and scatological. A procession and the traditional animal blessing take place the next day in the morning.

Old stones and newer ones around Arta

by Bigs

"Ses paisses Talyot Culture"

The earliest inhabitants of Mallorca lived here. You can visit this old surroundings of a Talayot village and get an impression of life in those days.

"Santuari de San Salvador"

You can see this fortress from far away. It saved Arta from many pirate attacks. From the walls you get a nice overview on the surroundings. Pirates were spotted early, as you can see the bay of Cala Rajada from here too.

"Transfiguracio del Senyor & Ermita de Betlem"

Under the fortress you will find this nice church which is still overlooking the town. There is a nice stairway leading there.

Also worth the adventurous drive is the view over the Bay of Alcudia from the Ermita de Betlem!
