Pollensa in Autumn: The Artisanal Trade Fair

Maybe it’s because this is the township that hosted our birth or perhaps because it’s full with stories to be told, or maybe it’s its lovely cobbled streets. For whatever reason: Pollença is our favourite village in Mallorca.

And we’re not alone, as thousands of tourists visit its beaches every summer, filling Puerto de Pollença, Cala Sant Vicenç and Formentor. What most of these holiday-goers don’t know is that they can also visit outside the months of July and August: there are endless things to do in Pollença in the Autumn.

The Trade Crafts Fair

On the fourth Sunday after Saint Luke – usually the second Sunday in November – the Feria de Artesanía de Pollença takes place: this year 2015, on the days 13th, 14th and 15th of November.

Throughout the fair you can visit animal shows and pettings, discover typical products and see the trade craft show-casing in the Claustro de Santo Domingo courtyard. Let yourself be swept away through the streets of Pollença, restlessly teeming with exhibitions on all sides and people strolling and shopping. The programme for the Pollença Artisanal Fair filled with activities for both the little ones of the house and for those fondly remembering the fairs from their childhood.

The Feria de Artesanía de Pollença is an ideal time to buy typical traditional goods from Mallorca such as siurells, weaved products or clay ceramics. You will also be able to buy the products that the crafts-people make, as well as those by artists and designers from Pollença.

There is plenty more Autumn to enjoy in Pollença

If you can’t make it for the fair weekend don’t worry: it’s not the only thing to do here in the Fall. All year around but especially during the autumn migration from Europe to Africa, you can see birds and brush up on your ornithology. 

Autumn is also a time of year ideal for doing sport: free from the intense heat of the Summer or the cold of Winter, hundreds of cyclists and hill-walkers are on the roads, country paths and trails of Pollença, Mallorca and the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range.

The landscapes, beaches, monuments and the historical buildings… everything keeps going in Pollença in the Autumn and takes on the season’s special charm: the warm reddish colours in the sky, the leaves decorating the ground… Come to Pollença in Autumn and enjoy the Artisanal Trade Crafts Fair!
