Easter Sunday

After all the angst and drama of the processions held across Mallorca during Good Friday and the preceding week, Easter Sunday sees an entirely different and joyous celebration of the resurrection of Christ and the reunion of the Virgin Mary and Jesus.

The Easter Sunday processions across the island become more relaxed and have an element of fun. This time the participants abandon the rather sinister looking cloaks and hoods and a marching brass band lifts the mood while birds are released to mark the happy event.

After attending mass, as in the UK, it is traditional on Easter Sunday for families to get together and spend the day eating and relaxing. Here in Soller swathes of locals take to the port, strolling on the sunny beaches, scoffing on delicious ice creams and catching up with neighbours and friends. Bliss!
