Sa Font del Sepulcre

In front of the Centre Cultural Sa Nostra in Palma de Mallorca one can find the Font del Sepulcre; it was erected in the 13th century over a Moorish cisterna from the 10th century.

Behind the font, the remains of the old church of Santo Sepulcro can be seen (built 1230 for the Trinitaria order, but abandoned in 1280), constructed over a previous Arab mosque.

Carrer de la Concepció, where the fountain is situated, used to be known as Carrer de la Monederia, as the Royal Mint was on this street during the Kingdom of Mallorca.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: February 12th, 2005. The time was 12:35:22. The etching is an excerpt of a map dating from 1644, credited to Antonio Garau, with the fountain bang in its centre. I borrowed the map from the internet, courtesy of Alta Mar. Gràcies, Fabian.
