26th July - 2nd August in Pollença, Majorca
Popular Festival: Patron Saint’s Feast Day
Celebrations in honour of Pollença’s patron saint, Mare de Déu dels Àngels, reach their height on 2nd August. One of the highlights is the battle between the Moors and Christians, a re-enactment of the clash that took place on 30th May 1550 when the Christians, led by Joan Mas, defeated the troops of Turgot Reis. The traditional cossiers dance and a host of social and cultural activities round off one of the island’s most famous and best-loved festivals.
