The Día de les Illes Balears

Thirty-one years ago, on March 1st, 1983, the Balearic Islands were given the political status of an Autonomous Region within Spain. Ever since then, this date – tomorrow – has been celebrated as a holiday here, the Día de les Illes Balears. Each of the four main islands will be holding a number of festive and institutional events on this day. For Mallorca, a PDF file with the programme of activities can be downloaded from the Govern de les Illes Balears website. Unfortunately, the information is only available in Catalan, but you will be surprised how easy the information can be understood as it is mainly about dates and locations.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: January 9th, 2014.
