On the 19th, 20th and 21st of May the municipality of Llevant will be transformed into a medieval setting thanks to the Capdepera Medieval Market, which takes you back to the Middle Ages

Capdepera celebrates its traditional Medieval Market from next Friday until Sunday, which is open to the whole island and its visitors. This massive fair, which depicts the medieval period through decorations from the Middle Ages, commemorates the founding of Capdepera by Jaume II in the year 1300.

The market offers a wide variety of artisan products and local foodstuffs. All this enlivened with concerts, plays, workshops, ‘correfocs’, ‘gegants’ dances, and a multitude of activities for families. Without a doubt, it is one of Mallorca’s favourite festivals that welcomes visitors from all corners of the island.
