After the almond blossom in January and February ushered spring in Mallorca, everything is greening and blooming before Easter. For walks on the mostly lonely beaches, the time around Easter is perfect, the island is not so crowded and you will find peace and relaxation everywhere with mostly beautiful spring-like temperatures and a bright blue sky.
Easter is the most important religious festival of Mallorca. This gives visitors the opportunity to attend numerous religious shows and processions during the Easter holidays. Anyone who is enthusiastic about Christian customs should not miss the festive events, they are totally worth seeing. Holy Week is traditionally full of rituals and processions in Mallorca to commemorate the suffering of Christ.
The Easter week, the "Semana Santa", traditionally begins on the Sunday before Easter, Palm Sunday. A visit to the festive service in the beautiful Cathedral of Palma should not be missed. After the blessing of palm and olive branches, the faithful walk the streets follows.
