One of the beautiful aspects of Spain is that it has some great places having wonderful culture and festivals. Mallorca is one of such places in Spain which is rich in great cultural heritage. There are plenty of bars and cafes in Mallorca that are ideal for kids belonging to this era. Similarly the nightlife in Mallorca is remarkable and enjoyable for all.

The modern culture of Mallorca is also evident in the area away from the sea. There are designer collection outlets, gift shops and cafes inside the city as well. One can witness the modern culture in the area of Passeig Born in this respect. There is a famous museum of Contemporary Art located in the city inside the Old Fortress which is worth visiting. Similarly there is a restaurant present adjacent to that.

A great aspect about Mallorca is that the famous artist of Spain Joan Miro spent thirty precious years of his life in this city. In the western part of Palma there is a foundation having display of work from the great artist. Similarly there are many other art galleries in this area that represent art collection from some of the famous artists of Spain. There are many theatres in Mallorca where some of the great festivals are held from time to time.

Mallorca is famous for two festivals mainly that are held once a year each. In the month of January the fiesta of Saint Sebastian is held. It is celebrated by the people in the city as a whole which makes the environment of the city very lively. There are parades, concerts, fireworks and lots of other things as part of this festival. This fiesta is mainly celebrated on the eve of nineteenth January. Similarly the formal proceedings of the fiesta are held on 20th January.

The other famous festival of Mallorca is Saint Joan. It is celebrated on 24th of June every year and the festival goes on peak as the time approaches evening. Right before this event the night of 23rd June is also celebrated in the city. There are fire runs and bonfires that amuse people and they enjoy the event. There are people that dress up as devils on this event that make the enjoyment multiply many folds.
