The Balearic Islands were given the status of Autonomous Region twenty-seven years ago, on March 1st, 1983. Ever since then, this date – today – has been celebrated as Día de les Illes Balears. Each of the four main islands organises a number of festive and institutional events on this day. For Mallorca, a PDF file with the programme of activities can be downloaded in Catalan from the Govern de les Illes Balears website.
