the almond blossom story
The Almond Blossom in Mallorca and Ibiza is for many the most magical time of year. Normally happening between the beginning of January and middle of February, it signifies the rebirth and the coming of spring.
A delicate mantle of pink and white extends throughout the countryside, bathing the islands with a beautiful and dazzling bed of snow.
For a few weeks, especially Ibiza truly lives up to it’s nickname “La Isla Blanca” the white island. The traditional white houses that earned it this name are complimented by fields of brilliant white almond blossom.
According to one of a few delightful stories, a long long time ago on the islands, there reigned a young king, who fell in love and married a beautiful girl, daughter of a great lord from the North.
