Saint Ursula Majorca

20th October in Mallorca

Popular Festival: Saint Ursula

On the eve of the Feast of Saint Ursula, the streets of various municipalities around Majorca are packed with groups of young men and traditional tuna music groups that serenade young girls under their balconies. To express their gratitude, the girls invite the young men to taste sweet fritters known as buñuelos and moscatel wine. This tradition commemorates the death of Saint Ursula and a further eleven thousand virgins, slain by the barbarian Huns in the 4th century.
