Spain would not be Spain without FIESTA, a word that has many meanings in Menorca and forms an essential part of the local lifestyle in many ways:

  • It could also mean the day of the People and Patron of Menorca, the feast of Saint Anthony ‘Sant Antoni’ in January. Or other public holidays celebrated through out the year such as the day of the Balearic Islands, Easter ‘Setmana Santa’ or Christmas Nadal’ or the three kings ‘Tres Reis’.
