Christmas markets in Mallorca

Christmas markets in Mallorca

The sky is blue and the sun is still shining but as darkness falls, Christmas lights are twinkling from palm trees all over the island. That means the holidays are almost upon us and it’s time to start looking for gifts, and where better than at Mallorca’s festive markets. Here are some of the best Christmas markets in and around Palma to shop for the perfect presents and celebrate the festive season.

Palma – Soak up the Christmas spirit in Plaza Mayor and La Rambla’s markets

Let’s start in the city centre. At this time of year, Palma fills up with small independent stalls in two of the city’s most popular locations: Plaza Mayor, the traditional main square in the heart of the city and La Rambla, the tree-lined boulevard that stretches from the foot of the plaza. You’ll find everything from locally crafted ceramics and jewellery to wooden toys and handmade nativity scenes, known as belenes, which are an important part of a Spanish Christmas.

These two central spots are ideal for a day or evening out, enjoying the sights of the city and eating churros while crossing names off your gifting list. These central markets are free and open Monday to Sunday from 10 am to 9 pm.

Pueblo Español – Immerse yourself in Spanish culture and do your shopping

Now let’s head west, just a fifteen-minute walk from Santa Catalina, to Pueblo Español, a unique “village” that pays homage to Spanish architecture with reproductions of some of the country’s most famous buildings, including the Alhambra in Granada. Each year, Pueblo Español is transformed into an open-air Christmas market with sparkling lights and festive decorations, food stalls selling roasted chestnuts and spiced mulled wine and, of course, plenty of shops offering handcrafted ornaments, artisanal goods and sweet treats.

Children can also meet Santa Claus at the North PEM-Pole. Check out the live music schedule because bands from all over the world will be performing until 17th December. The market is open from 12 pm to 11.30 pm and admission is 10€ for adults and 5€ for children, which includes a glühwein or a hot chocolate.

Puerto Portals – Elevate your Christmas shopping in this maritime wonderland

Last stop: let’s venture out of the city—by cab, bus, or car—to Puerto Portals, one of the most exclusive marinas in the Mediterranean, sitting pretty on the island’s southwest coast. Until 6th January, you can enjoy the European-inspired Christmas market with more than 40 wooden stalls, traditional food, and an ice skating rink in an upscale setting surrounded by sleek superyachts.
