The Funfair Mallorca is located in Palma, in the area of Son Fusteret and begins on February 28 and ends on April 28.

The reason of this fair is religious and starts with the arrival on the island of a sculpture of Veronica bearer of the relic of the Holy Face, which presumably was sent from Rome to the nuns of the monastery of Santa Margarita.

This statue aroused such great devotion among the Mallorcan people, that they decided to celebrate 3 festivities since the arrival of Veronica’s statue. ”Domingo de Ramos”, “miércoles santo” y “natividad de nuestra señora”.

Funfair Mallorca – big event with tradition

During the Palm Sunday and for a long period of time, many people gathered in the monastery of the nuns of Santa Margarita to visit and venerate the image of the virgin. For this reason  many traders have begun  to sell their products  in the near of the monastery.

This event was moved to different places in Palma; due to the crowds of visitors grew larger every year more and more. Then spontaneously appears the idea from the people of calling this event “Fira Del Ram”.

There are a several forms of access to the Funfair Mallorca, such as:
– With the  car from the highway or from Palma (this place has two large parking).
– By bus, with the number 10 (Sa Idioteria), which leaves you directly in front of the funfair.
– using the metro from the Plaza de España, taking the stop  Son Fuster Vell ( third  stop).

A series of tips to keep in mind before going to the Funfair Mallorca:

– Avoid the most crowded hours especially if you go with small children
– Saturday and Sunday mornings there are fewer queues to access to the rides and the prices are usually cheaper.
– There will be two days during the week, in which the 2×1 tickets will be provided there.

The highlight of this year in the Funfair Mallorca, is the attraction ‘’Centrox’’. It has impacted those who have got on it. Mostly teenagers had heard that it looked like the Pot, but “instead of jumping up and down, it spins like a flying saucer.
