La Diada de Mallorca (Mallorca Day 2012) will be celebrated on September 12th, 2012. The Diada commemorates the pledge made by Jaume II in 1276 of the Carta de Franqueses i Privilegis del Regne de Mallorca (Charter of Liberties and Privileges of the Kingdom of Mallorca), which became the legal basis for the administration of this island. Festivities have already started. Today, there will be a Trobada de Gegants (Meeting of the Giants) in Plaça Cort, starting at 10h00. This year, a week-long gastronomic event will be held in participating restaurants all over the island. Check press for details or else, check the Consell website. A complete programme of activities can be downloaded here (in Catalan).
