Meditation, religion and devotion flood Easter

This is part of the tradition and culture of all the towns and villages of Mallorca and is celebrated in a variety of different ways. Starting with the traditional processions of Easter Sunday, which fervently celebrate the resurrection of Christ, although the most spectacular will take place in the preceding days, during Holy Week, and include Crist de la Sang in Palma and the Oratori del Calvari in Pollença. But besides processions, Easter is a time when the people of Mallorca love to eat. Family cooking traditions include typical sweets like “robiols” and “crespells” and succulent pies made with meat and peas that we call “panades”. Ah! And Easter Monday is when the chocolate eggs are eaten, a real treat for those with a sweet tooth.
