Es Firo Festival

Es Firo Festival

This historical festival in Mallorca is marked each year in May and celebrates the victory of the local Sollerics over the Turkish pirate invaders in 1561. As this is the biggest calendar event in the region, Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa encourages guests to join the celebrations. During the afternoon, adults and children can witness an exciting and colourful re-enactment of the battle, complete with traditional costumes, shotguns, swords and catapults. In the evening, in Soller’s main square, a final showdown takes place with battles, songs and an enchanting fireworks display. A trip on the vintage-tram is recommended to experience the short but scenic journey to and from Soller.
