Products made of almonds are famous all around the world but not many have seen just how beautiful they are during the blossom period.
From late January till March about five million almond trees turn into pale pink fluffy clouds across Mallorca. Their flowers cannot be missed, especially because of the rich sweet aroma. When you travel to mountainous monasteries around this time, you can enjoy beautiful vistas called "Mallorcan snow" for good reason.
Almond trees are grown on the whole territory of the island, but the biggest density can be found on the eastern coast in the town of Son Servera. Annually in the beginning of February, the Fira de la flor d'ametller (the Fair of Blooming Almonds) is held in the countryside of the city. Various goods which are made of almonds are sold there as well. Also, one can purchase equipment used for harvesting and preparing nuts. And, of course, traditional Mallorqui music accompanies the event at every corner.
