Mallorca has a surface of 3,640 km and an elevation of 1,445 m, but this island is not only blessed by its physical qualities, but also by its good weather, its delicious local gastronomy, beautiful villages and, of course, its superb connectivity. 

The capital of this pearl of the Mediterranean is the city of Palma, which has a great cultural character and an entertaining nightlife. There you will find the Moorish royal palace of Almudaina and the 13th century Cathedral of Santa Maria, which boasts the largest Gothic rose window in the world.

The most heart-warming time of the year is here, and at Hotel Son Caliu we would like to recommend you the best plans to spend a dream Christmas in Mallorca.

The Balearic capital is also home to a very interesting Nativity route that brings together

One of the most deeply-rooted traditions in Mallorca, and the one we want to share with you today, is the Christmas Nativity Scene route. Not only are homes filled with fantastic figurines that recreate the birth of the baby Jesus, but the Balearic capital is also home to a very interesting Nativity route that brings together, year after year, thousands of people and whole families. A very special tradition in Mallorca that nourishes the Christmas spirit of families, especially that of the youngest members of the family, who look forward to this time of the year with great expectation.

Here are some of the most interesting Nativity scenes to visit at this time of year:

Cort Nativity scene. The most iconic Nativity Scene in Mallorca has 250 clay figures, handmade and hand-painted. Furthermore, the little ones can leave their letter to the Three Wise Men in the „Royal Mailbox“, a very special Mallorcan custom.

The opening hours for visiting the Nativity Scene in Cort (Palma City Hall) are Monday to Friday from 9:00 am – 8:30 pm and Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 10:00 am – 8:00 pm. 

El Corte Inglés Nativity scene. It is one of the largest in Palma and has a very interesting audiovisual show. In addition, every year different children’s activities are held in aid of the Asociación de Padres de Niños con Cáncer de Baleares (Aspanob) (Association of Parents of Children with Cancer of the Balearic Islands).

Neapolitan Nativity scene of the Fundación March. Declared an „Asset of Cultural Interest“, it was exhibited in the Royal Palace in Madrid in 2007 and is one of the most interesting to visit in the Balearic capital.

Fundación Sa Nostra Nativity Scene. This is a nativity scene that depicts different typical scenes from the Mallorcan rural world and, without a doubt, is a must-see on the nativity scene route in Palma.

Strolling through the streets of Palma during these days, visiting the Nativity scenes is one of the best Christmas plans

During these visits, you will also find an endless number of Christmas markets such as the one in Plaza Mayor or Plaza España, food stalls and a magical atmosphere. Without going any further, El Paseo de Borne and the surrounding area is the perfect place to take a stroll and finish off with a nice cup of hot chocolate to warm you up.

If you want to discover the magic of Christmas hidden in every corner of Palma, remember that the Son Caliu Apartments are open all year round and are the perfect place to stay during these special dates.
