The Winter Solstice Performance

I am very sorry if this blog entry happens to be an annual rerun but, there you go.

We are coming up for another Winter Solstice the day after tomorrow (December 22nd, 05h30 UTC). That would be an event to celebrate anywhere in the world but, here in Mallorca, we are treated to a very special visual phenomenon. La Seu (the Palma Cathedral) will be illuminated from the rising morning sun in the East, a visual treat that you can admire from the Baluard de Sant Pere to the East of the Cathedral. If you get to the Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma at 08h00 sharp just when doors are being opened, you are in with a good chance to see the spectacle. A sight truly to behold. The photo (above) shows this year’s brief episode as witnessed last Sunday, albeit as a preview from a few days early.

The photo was borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of and the photographer, Anton Aubanell Pou.

Moltes gràcies.
