Menorca is well known for its exciting festivals that take place throughout the summer months, but one of the most exciting festivals of the year is held later on in September. The Festes de la Mare de DÃ©u de GrÃ cia is one of the largest festivals in Menorca, and it takes place in Mahon. Now Bartle Holidays is suggesting that anyone who wants to enjoy the excitement of this festival should book their holiday soon and enjoy a bit of late-season sun at the same time.
The festival celebrates the 'Virgen de GrÃ cia’ and usually lasts for about four days, including a weekend. It is held in early September while the weather is still warm but not unbearably hot, and is a fantastic way to make the most of the last days of summer.
Bartle Holidays, a company that provides villas all over Menorca, says that wherever holidaymakers decide to stay on the island they will be able to reach Mahon with ease because the island is quite small and easy to navigate. If they decide to visit during the festival they will be in for a treat because there are a wealth of activities and events to enjoy, and the atmosphere is excellent.
The whole of Mahon is decorated in flags and bright colours in the days leading up to the festival, and there is a lot of excitement in the air. During the festival itself, visitors can expect to enjoy:
- Horse riding exhibitions
- A food fair
- An artisan market
- A fun fair for children
- Music bands
Visitors will find a lot of things to see and do, and there is also a spectacular firework show to bring it to a close on the last night.
Visiting the festival can really help to add something to the experience of visiting Menorca. Bartle Holidays suggests early September as a great time to visit Menorca for anyone who wants to enjoy the cultural experience of this festival. However, there are plenty of other festivals held all over the island during July and August for anyone planning to visit during the summer.
