Let's talk about   Ciutadella

Its history, its beaches, its urbanisations, its lighthouses, its port, its squares, its narrow streets…. What fun it is to play at getting lost in the narrow, ancient streets of the city centre! They have a special charm, and we love to go with the little ones in the house. They show us which way to go, we read their curious names and in the end we always end up the same way, lost in some new dead end.

The port is beautiful, how beautiful the lights are at night. And the “rissagas”? The water level rises to such a level that the water has even entered the premises.
And if you’re looking to go out for drinks and dancing, the port is definitely the place to be, as this is where most of the discotheques are concentrated.

In the centre of the town is Ses Voltes, where people tend to congregate, strolling and shopping. There you will also find the beautiful Cathedral. Another place not to be missed is the monastery of Santa Clara, undoubtedly one of the oldest and most appreciated places in the town.

It has a market where almost all the butchers and fishmongers are located, with very good products to make a good purchase. It is well worth a visit. In this same area, the “tardeo” has become fashionable, on Saturdays at midday, apart from shopping, you can have a vermouth, some tapas and listen to some music.

Sant Antoni

Ciutadella is a festive town. They have several important celebrations.

On the 17th of January, Menorca celebrates Sant Antoni, its patron saint, but in Ciutadella they celebrate it in a special way.

After celebrating a ceremony in the Cathedral of Menorca, they hold a procession with the saint walking through the streets of the town until they reach a tile, marked with a T, where the youngest councillor of the corporation, with a flagpole, strikes three blows on it. It is a special day in this town, we like to see this act very much.

In the rest of the towns, bonfires are usually held to toast sobrassada and butifarró, and those who do not go to the bonfire do it at home, but it is typical on this day to eat a good sandwich of this Menorcan sausage.

Sant Joan

But the days they look forward to all year round, the ones that just as they finish and start the countdown for the following year, are the 23rd and 24th of June. The festival of Sant Joan.

The preparations for this festival are spectacular and full of tradition. Months beforehand, they prepare a lamb, the best one, and wash it until it is as white as possible. This lamb, a week before Sant Joan, is paraded around the village. On Saturday it is called “sa revetla d’es be”, they keep it in a garage where people come to see it. Old legends say that if you go to Ciutadella that night and you don’t see it, you have bad luck for the rest of the year, will you stop visiting it?
The next day, at 9 a.m., the festival procession makes a “primer toc de fabiol” with a man dressed in lamb’s wool and barefoot (s’homu d’es bé). He carries the lamb on his shoulders and after this, they walk all day long through the streets of Ciutadella and make stops at the most important points. People try to get as close as possible to touch it.

The following week, on the night of the 22nd, the streets are filled with bonfires and music, people jump over the bonfires and burn the “bujots”, made by the children and people of the town. But when the 23rd of June arrives, the big party begins, at two o’clock in the afternoon almost the whole of Menorca gathers to see the festivities begin, the ones that start a summer full of festivities in every town, but they are the first ones. We warn you, if you are claustrophobic, don’t go near the “first toc”.

Once permission has been requested to start the fiesta, the rest of the riders are collected so that at six o’clock sharp they can make the entrance of the “caixer senyor i sa capellana” to the Plaza del Borne, they enter at a gallop, and they start three laps of the square with the music of the jaleo and the horses jumping.

From here they go to Sant Joan de Missa to celebrate the “completes” and pray that all goes well. When the sun goes down, they return. And from this moment on, they go round and round with the horses, “es caragol”, which can last until four o’clock in the morning.

While the riders are at mass, the streets of the village are filled with hazelnuts, people buy sacks of empty hazelnuts, to throw them among themselves. They say that they were thrown to the person you were in love with, have they ever been thrown to you?

The next morning they start with the games, “es Jocs des Pla”. It is said that in the morning it is more familiar, it is easier to go with children. In the afternoon it is repeated, but it is a more crowded party, people make a corridor so that the horses can run and link the “ensortilla” or break the “carotas”. Every time a “ensortilla” is successful, the band plays a song, and those who are closest to where it has fallen, try to be the first to pick it up from the ground so that they can put it back for the next race.

When the games are over, they go back up to the village, because this is held in the port area, to be able to do the “caragols” again. Once finished, they say goodbye to the party, it is the most emotional moment for the people of Ciutadella. Normally only they attend this act, they say goodbye until the following year, and it is here where the countdown begins.
