One of the best times of the year to visit Mallorca is during the month of May. The temperatures start to rise and the lack of tourists means that you can get around without being stuck in traffic jams. More importantly, the month of May is when the little known town of Capdepera in the north east of the island hosts its Medieval ‘Fira’. This fiesta is a celebration of the town’s history and its castle, and it is considered to be one of the best on the island. For one weekend in May, the town transports itself and all who visit back hundreds of years to the Middle Ages, with music, costumes and festivities from medieval times.
