Whatever you are looking for during the festive season, whether it's joy and recreation and reflection or a place to regain strength for the challenges of the upcoming year, Mallorca has it all (but for one thing – enough snow to please a skier). With its mild climate and wonderfully clear starry winter skies, the beautiful Christmas lighting in Palma, villages and towns all across the island, you'll find hand-crafted Nativity scenes and plenty of festivities for all religions, cultural and culinary traditions. This season nourishes the souls of all and the island is the ideal place to put you in the mood for Christmas, New Years' Eve and the most important Spanish Holiday, Three Kings' Day.

In our ULTIMATE GUIDE Christmas we let you in on Mallorca's customs and traditions and show you where you can join in the celebrations, or how to make them all your own. Happy holidays to you and your family!
