Just before you enter the Esglèsia de l’Anunciació in Palma, also known as the Esglèsia de Sant Crist de la Sang, you pass the Hospital General as well as a small courtyard lined with Seville orange trees. The courtyard is lovely, peaceful and pleasing, not least because of a rather beautiful façade in the neo-Gothic style that you find behind your back as you enter the patio. Turn around and have a look.
This accessory was built onto the hospital in 1865 and is attributed to Antoni Sureda who also designed Palma’s Teatre Principal, another beaut.
