Meeting of Giants at Sant Marçal Church. Autumn Fair 2008

The Giants of Lluchmajor
Candida, the Lluchmajor giantess

Giants have been recorded in Luchmajor since 1893 but it is strongly suspected that there were even earlier ones. The present pair, Miquel and Candida, were built by Pep Fluixà in 1989. The date is embroidered on the handkerchief Candid wears at her waist. He is 3.25 metres tall, weighing 35 kilos whereas she is 3.10 metres tall and weighs 30 kilos.

Until a short time ago, Miquel and Candida were placed at the entrance to the Town Hall on special occasions as their construction made it impossible for them to be carried. However, modification to their internal structure changed this and they can now be seen at Encounters of Giants all over the Island.

There are four other, smaller, lighter and therefore more nimble giants that also take part in processions and other events.
