Procession of the Three Wise Men in Ibiza Town

The Three Wise Men will arrive in Ibiza Town by boat on the 5th of January at around 6:30 pm.

Some of the streets they will pass through are Calle del País Vasco, Avenida de España, Avenida de Ignasi Wallis, Avenida de Bartomeu Rosselló and Paseo de s’Alamera. As they travel through the city, Their Majesties will greet the children and hand out sweets.

In addition, on the 6th of January, the Royal Procession of Es Clot will be held in the Parque de la Paz, which will include a children’s party and music and dance activities for the little ones.

Arrival of the Three Wise Men in Sant Antoni

The Three Wise Men will arrive in Sant Antoni from the Far East by sea. If there are no further developments, they will disembark at the town’s port at around half past six in the afternoon, and then take their carriages alongside their pages.

This year, Melchior, Gaspar and Balthazar will be assisted by a character from the show El sueño de la Selenita (Selenita’s Dream), who will help them distribute gifts and happiness throughout the streets of the town. The carriages, extraordinarily decorated, will make two laps of the promenade up to the well-known Columbus Egg.

On the 5th of January, the Three Wise Men will arrive in Santa Eulària around 6 pm. They will disembark at the Sailing School and shortly afterwards they will make way for the royal procession through several streets of the town. After crossing the streets of Sant Llorenç, Sant Joan, José Guasch Vich and Sant Jaume, their Majesties will make a stop at the Chapel of Lourdes. At around 8 pm, the distribution of gifts will take place in the Plaza de España.

In Sant Josep, the royal procession begins at around half past five in the afternoon with the arrival of the Three Wise Men, followed by the distribution of gifts.
