The Assumption of the Virgin Mary

August 2017

There are many rites of deep root and tradition that remains alive in Mallorca, but, in summer, the most expected takes place on the occasion of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, religious holiday par excellence and very valued cultural heritage. In the Departament for Heritage, we are interested in the burial monuments, beds, curtains, canopies, dances, processions, belvederes and basils that complement the marian statues since centuries ago, but also we consider everything preserved in the memory and in the colective culture. For all these reasons, we want reactivate an exhaustive historical research and conservation project given all artistic set conserved in Mallorca, safeguarding the common cultural heritage.
