On November 27th, at 7pm, Palma celebrates the inauguration of its traditional Christmas lights. It is a very popular event organized every year by the Council of the Majorcan capital.
Thousands of people gather in the central Cort Square to enjoy a night full of magic and colour. Christmas carols are played and a very pleasant atmosphere takes over the city. Visitors can enjoy musical performances by local groups such as Xeremiers Ciutat de Mallorca or the Municipal Elementary Music Conservatory choir.
Palma residents and visitors roam the city streets contemplating the beauty of these lights; a great activity to enjoy with family or friends during the magical winter holidays.
Palma’s Christmas lights are taken down on January 6th, except for the city’s Old Town, which remains lit until the festivities of Sant Sebastià. In total, 30 kilometres of cable light 102 streets in 85 districts. The schedule for the lights is 5:30 to 9:30pm every day, except Friday and Saturday, when the lights are turned off at midnight. In addition, on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, the lights will be on until 6am.
