Almost all Majorcans are Roman Catholic, even though secularisation is increasing rapidly. The number of parish clergy, monks and nuns is also declining sharply. Despite this decline, there is still massive participation in the important religious festivals. It is clear that at the moment it is more and more tradition instead of religious belief. During parties and festivals, old customs and traditions come back to life. Many festivals have a religious origin, often with special veneration of Mary.

In the week before Easter, Semana Santa takes place, which is the most important religious festival in Mallorca. Many processions are held all over the island during Holy Week and during Corpus Christi. Every community celebrates the festival of the patron saint with pilgrimages (romeriás), parades and folk festivals (ferias).
