Guard Change Cancelled

The historic ceremony of the changing of the guard at the Almudaina Palace

The historic ceremony of the changing of the guard at the Almudaina Palace will not take place as scheduled this
Saturday, 25th. It's been cancelled because of the weather – it's way to hot to be marching about in army uniforms of the past!

If you didn't know already, Mallorca has been experiencing extremely hot weather with temperatures as high as 39 degrees centigrade. Though there is cooler weather forecast for the weekend the
Guard of Honour Commander has decided to take no chances and cancel the ceremony.

There's only ever been one change to the change, which normally takes place on the last Saturday of every month apart from December, when it was switched to a Thursday a couple of years ago to
avoid clashing with a political visit to Palma.

The next ceremony should take place on September 29th.
