Corpus Christi – Celebrations in Pollença and Palma
In Palma, the procession will again be particularly magnificent. This traditional, religious fiesta is celebrated sixty days after Easter Sunday in the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca and has become one of the best visited celebrations of the year. The procession is preceded by the cross of “Lledania”, an ancient artwork that has not been used for almost forty years and been restored a few years ago. It is 2.40 meters high, made of wood and the top consists of a circle adorned with 1200 hardwax flowers. What can also be understood as an attribute of spring and summer. In ancient times, each parish had its own ‘Lledania’, which corresponded to the main cross of the cathedral. In front of the Cathedral of Palma and on the Town Hall Square beautiful carpets of fresh flowers are laid out on Corpus Christi Day. The Corpus Christi procession in Palma takes place on Sunday. The Bishop of Mallorca celebrates the Holy Mass in the cathedral at 6 pm. In addition, the town hall organizes the Corpus Christi cycle on the occasion of the solemnity in the courtyards with a wide musical spectrum.
