“Gegants de Santa Maria” (Giants of Santa Maria) is a non-profit organisation set up in 2006. The giants represent characters from fables, taken from the book Fables and Legends of Santa Maria by Monsignor Josep Capó and Juan and Mateu Morro i Marcé. The male giant represents Soler “The Banished”, and the female giant represents Maria of Coanegra. Mariano “Kake” Portas, an artist settled in Esporles, was commissioned to construct the giants. Kake’s wife made the giants’ clothes. The giants made their début on 5th May 2007, at the First Meeting of Giants of Santa Maria del Camí. The group is made up of the giants, the musicians and the capgrossos (people wearing oversized papier-mâché heads): these are homely, festive folk who show their high regard for the giants.
