Summer holidays in Puerto Pollensa
In the Port of Pollença two festivites are held during the summer: Sant Pere and the Mare de Déu del Carme, both very much related to the seafaring tradition of the dock, “Eu Moll”.
Saint Peter is the patron saint of fishermen and in the past he even came to be that of Puerto Pollensa. Around the 29th of June, this summer festival takes place, which for several days fills the old dock, Moll Vell with market stalls, traditional dances, habanera contradanzas and tributes to the marine tradition of Port de Pollença.
The Mare de Déu del Carme (16th of July) is the patron saint of Port de Pollença and for an entire week the “molleros” dock men celebrate it with a broad variety of acts, to which tourists and the curious are always welcome. Over the course of a week, fairs and festivities, concerts, sporting events and a long string of others, fill the town’s calendar. The final hallmark event takes place on Sunday with a correfoc “fire-run” through the village and fireworks on the beach.
