Rebellious Selva

I like Selva, for its setting at the foot of the Tramuntana mountains, and for a general feel of confidence that the pueblo exudes.

Selva has an air about the place that is quite distinct from your average Mallorcan sleepy town. There is a history of civil disobedience, when Selva took part in the Rebellion of the People in the 15th century, in this case, against the nearby towns people from Inca, strangling Selva’s farming community with taxes, duties and other unjust civil burdens.

Sant Llorenç (shown here) is the Esglèsia Parroquial, a very proud church sitting on an elevated position high above the town square of Selva.

The photo was taken in Selva, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: July 5th, 2008. The time was 14:16:40.
