Bonfires in Gràcia

The Foguerons de Sa Pobla in Gràcia will be burned again on Saturday January 27 in a dozen spaces in the neighborhood. Several activities have also been scheduled to bring us closer to the Mallorcan culture.

The last weekend of January Gràcia celebrates the tradition of the Foguerons de Sa Pobla, a Mallorcan festival that came to the Vila de Gràcia thanks to a father who wanted to pass it on to his children. The festival is a real spectacle where the foguerons, the xeremiers de flabioles, the zambombas, the glosadors and singers are the protagonists. In addition, every year it is a meeting point for Mallorcans, residents and neighbors of Gràcia.

For three decades now, on the last weekend of January, the streets and squares of the old Vila de Gràcia have been filled with bonfires that have become Gràcia’s unofficial winter festival.
