What's On Around Alcúdia And Pollensa - Muro Sant Joan Fiestas

The first of the summer's fiestas in the north of Mallorca, the actual feast day of Saint John The Baptist is 24 June. This is the saint who lends his name to Muro's stunning church and who is the town's patron. Sant Joan is very big stuff in Menorca, rather more so than in Mallorca (which is why a load of Mallorcans head to Menorca from Alcúdia's port for its festivities), but as it's the first summer fiesta of the season, Muro's celebrations are greatly looked forward to. The fiestas start this evening, but thunder into life tomorrow night with a demons' fire-run. Things to watch out for are the two horse shows and, on the day of Sant Joan itself, the procession of floats and the closing pyromusical fireworks spectacular. English version of the programme at:
