The Plaça de Ses Columnes in Palma de Mallorca is a nice place to sit, relax and recover from a shopping trip to nearby Mercat Pere Garau, a very lively neighbourhood market. The plaça is really called Plaça de Francesc García i Orell, but everybody uses the common name.
The columns were placed there in the early Twenties, at the time of the Second Spanish Republic, before the Guerra Civil broke out. I was horrified when, some 4 or 5 years ago, the columns were demolished due to structural tiredness of the material. But one has to admit that a decent repair job has been undertaken by the Ajuntament de Palma and now, the plaça is as well accepted by the local vecinos as it ever was.
