The Oratory Of Sant Feliu

sant_feliu

One of the nicest places of devotional worship in Palma de Mallorca to my mind is the Oratori de Sant Feliu, not far from the Passeig des Born. The Gothic chapel was built during the 13th century, soon after the Catalan conquest, making this one of the oldest oratories in Palma. The doorway was changed during the 16th century in the Renaissance style.

Inside one can find an original altar, some nicely decorated Gothic columns and a tombstone dated 1753 in memory of Thomas Burguéz, the Chevallier of Çaforteza, who was the proprietor of the chapel and the adjoining building (Can Quint-Zaforteza).

The oratory has not been used for any religious service for quite some time now, as far as I understand. Instead, the premises are now being used by a contemporary art gallery next-door for exhibitions, some of them of a very special inclination.

The photo (top) was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: January 11th, 2008. The time was 14:06:56. The photo (bottom) was taken at the same place. The date: September 22nd, 2009. The time was 13:16:57.
