Felanitx or Felanich is a municipality in the Spanish autonomous community of the Balearic Islands, located in the southeast of Majorca, 48 kilometres from the capital Palma de Mallorca. Since 1603, when the St. Agustí convent was founded, Felanitx has been famous for Els Cavallets dance, in which seven boys of between 10 and 13 years of age, wearing white trousers, red tops and green hats, dance around La Dama, another child in a dress who waves a handkerchief to the music. All dancers were male until fairly recently, when young girls were permitted to join. The town, dating back to the 13th century, lies near the medieval Sant Salvador Monastery with its Gothic architecture. We briefly visited the town with its Parrňquia de Sant Miquel church in the autumn of 2019.
