November 2019 in Mallorca - Top 8 things to do

Traditional fairs, delicious food and art

As the tourists dwindle, the streets, beaches and trendy restaurants of Mallorca are noticeably quieter than previous months. The weather is also cooler with averages around 20°C but the sun still shines (most of the time), making the island an attractive autumn destination.

Local traditional festivals thrive at this time of year, cyclists come out of summer hibernation and Palma becomes an appealing city break destination throughout the cooler months on the island.

Dijous Bo Fair in Inca

The island's largest agricultural fair, the Dijous Bo, takes place on November 14th in Inca. Farmers and artisans from all over Mallorca don their best traditional costumes and gather in this small rural village for a big market where you can find everything, from local produce to handicrafts. There is also live music, art exhibitions, performances and lots of activities for children. Due to the popularity of this event, it's worth knowing that a special train timetable operates between Palma and Inca.

Local produce festivals

If you prefer your taster of Mallorca's traditional customs and produce in a smaller size, you can try the Olive Fair in Caimari, the Honey Festival in Llubi or the New Wine Fiesta in Santa Maria del Cami. There is also a Pumpkin Fair in Muro complete with a giant pumpkin competition and a Mushroom Fair in Mancor de la Vall honouring the humble but delicious 'esclata-sang' mushrooms.

TaPalma Tapas Festival

TaPalma Tapas Festival is definitely one for the foodies as the humble Spanish tapa takes Palma by storm. This year, the capital city’s food extravaganza takes place between November 27th and December 1st. Restaurants and bars around town offer their most creative small bites and there are curated routes you can follow so that you don't miss anything.

Vegan food festival

On November 2nd and 3rd there will be a two-day vegan food festival, the ‘Fira Vegana’ in Plaça Santa Maria la Major in Inca. This is the 5th edition of the event and, as veganism takes the world by storm, we expect plenty of people in attendance. You can enjoy food stalls, activities and an amateur vegan cooking contest.

Churches & Cathedrals in Mallorca

Visual magic at Palma Cathedral

Twice per year, the rose window that decorates the main altar in Palma Cathedral casts a light and colour image on the facing wall creating a double rose window that looks like an eight. This happens because the cathedral is oriented towards the sunrise during the winter solstice. Head early to the cathedral, at around 08:00, on November 11th to witness the stunning effect.

Sights in Mallorca

Food Passion at Port Adriano

This month, Food Passion returns to Port Adriano for its 7th edition, so you can treat yourself to a special lunch or dinner in Mallorca's most beautiful luxury marina without breaking the bank. Yes, that’s right, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in November, restaurants in the port offer special tasting menus for a discounted price ranging between €16 and €20 per person.

Christmas comes to Palma

It might seem early but Christmas is right around the corner. Palma lights up for the celebrations on November 28th, just in time for the Black Friday madness. Head to Passeig des Born to see the Christmas lights switched on. Live music and performances will liven up the streets of the city in preparation for the festivities.

Shopping
