Acrobats at the Capdepera Mediaeval fair. | M. FUSTER
Mallorca enjoys a mediaeval fiesta. The Inca fairs of November offer a mediaeval market that for some visitors to the fairs is more of a highlight than the island's biggest fair of all - Dijous Bo. Capdepera has been holding a mediaeval market since the turn of the millennium, a thousand years after the old millennium started and when Mallorca's history was all but non-existent. At the weekend, this fair-cum-grand fiesta will spill out from the old castle, a defence fortress from mediaeval times.
