The festivities of San Juan have been celebrated in Ciudadella since the XIV century, and the main actors are horses, a symbol of power and nobility and of unique beauty. During the holidays, the best examples of Minorcan horses roam the streets of the town with their riders all dressed up, showing their skills and elegance.


The show at the Ciudadela is magical: all horses dance to traditional songs of Minorca in what is called the jaleo. During this exhibition, horses are guided by horse riders and surrounded by thousands of onlookers, concentrated despite the camera flashes, the hustle and ambience typical of the celebrations.


Once this equestrian exhibition is over, people focus on the second main protagonist of the holidays: the Minorcan gastronomy and xoriguer gin, a sweet gin typical of the island that is usually mixed with natural juice lemon and is called pomada.


The festivities of San Juan last all day and night, the village houses are open for visitors to share a glass of gin with the owners, and the whole atmosphere is one of joy, tradition and authenticity.
