Valldemosa DAMARC The Dig The Three Kings

The Feast of the Three Kings

I was in Mallorca for Twelfth Night, 1999. From three mountains surrounding Deia, three processions came into the town, lighted by auto flares, each escorting one of the Three Kings.

They joined in the town and came up the hill to the little church, escorting a float with a Nativity scene upon it.

 

 

At the church, children were called to the fore and given presents their parents had deposited there earlier.

..and we went home and had cake and I was crowned King because I found a King in my slice!
