Enjoy the culture, enjoy Can Picafort
Santa Margalida has made a bold commitment to promote culture and enhance local identity through various cultural projects. In this way, Can Picafort wants to become the cultural reference of reference in the north of the island and the Bay of Alcudia in particular. This initiative aims to give a new image to the village, strengthen the links between the environment and its residents, and offer a cultural alternative to everyone who comes to Can Picafort. In short, the aim is to turn Can Picafort into the new Ithaca of the Mediterranean.
The Saladina Art Fest aims to give a new image to the village of Can Picafort through large-format murals. The festival is a commitment to local identity and poetry as the starting point for its murals. It also takes as a reference the link between the village and the sea and the character of its residents. This means, both for the residents and for the visitors, an added value to the village and to the whole municipality.
Joan Bennàssar’s sculptures also aim to turn Can Picafort into the cultural reference of the Bay of Alcudia, and to turn culture into one of the main assets of local tourism. These pieces of cement, mainly women between 1.5 and 3 meters, are goddesses and fairies who dialogue with nature and the sea, which in turn evoke ancient Mediterranean civilizations. These are distributed in 4 groups and are located on the beach along the promenade: desire, ritual, treasure and wound.
The Marimón Contemporary Art Gallery is today a benchmark in the artistic panorama of northern Mallorca. Painters of the stature of Joan Riera Ferrari, Joan Bennàssar, Ricard Chiang and Menéndez Rojas are regulars in the gallery. Since its inception it has also been distinguished by its commitment to the young talents of the Islands. The gallery focuses exclusively on contemporary art, be it figurative, abstract, avant-garde or a reflection of the most contemporary classicism, and also flirts with artistic photography. Its schedule is from Tuesday to Saturday at 16:00-20:00h.
