Jewish Cemetery

jewish_cemetery.jpg

In the old days, the part of Palma de Mallorca shown in this photo was outside of the city boundaries by a long way.

It is said that in the 14th Century, Mallorca’s Jewish community used to bury their dead relatives beyond where the low pink building stands now.

The building itself dates from the 18th Century and was originally used as a public laundry facility. It is called the Rentadors del Jonquet and today serves as an occasional municipal art gallery. It is owned and run by the city of Palma de Mallorca.

I imagine that not many people think of Palma’s Jewish community, dead or alive, as they drive past here.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The date: February 12th, 2008. The time was 14:23:23.
