28th July in Valldemossa, Majorca
Popular Festival: la Beata
Residents of the Majorcan town of Valldemossa throng the streets to honour their patron, Saint Catherine Thomas, who was born there in 1531. The Carro Triomfal - or ceremonial chariot - makes its way around the streets in a procession that includes many locals wearing the traditional dress of the island’s country folk, whilst the xeremiers (pipers) play the famous traditional Majorcan song ‘Sor Tomasseta’.
