The Assumption of the
Virgin Mary

August 2019

It’s summer again and the flags also arrive in the squares, the fun runs, the ice creams and the sugary ensaimadas, correfocs, concerts and dances in the street, solemn religious celebrations... And in August we keep in mind the religious holiday par excellence in honor of the Virgin, the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. This year, from the Department of Heritage of the Consell de Mallorca, we want to continue with the promotion of this celebration: updating the website, the schedules of visits, exhibitions and activities and we also expand the research including new documents to get to know the history better. We also promote the preventive conservation with a video that gives the guidelines for the best manipulation of cultural heritage. Our intention is to protect, conserve and disseminate to give continuity to the celebration.
