The Diocesan Museum in Palma

The Palau Episcopal, the residence of the Bishop of Mallorca, has undergone an extensive renovation, recently. Nine months ago, the Museu Diocesà re-opened in the new setting, and a visit is highly recommended.

The museum displays some of the treasures of the Mallorcan Church of which there are many as one might imagine. There are relics of religious sculpture, archaeology, ceramics, ecclesiastical art as well as Gothic paintings, with a few original pieces thrown in for good measure, designed by Antoni Gaudí. The museum also comprises the very beautiful oratory of Sant Pau, dating from the 15th century.

The Museo Diocesano and the Palacio Episcopal are near the sea front, just behind the cathedral in Palma de Mallorca. Opening hours are 10h00 to 14h00, Tuesday to Friday. Admission is 3 €, unless you are a resident, in which case you could gain access for a mere 1 €.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 11th, 2008. The time was 13:15:32.
