The Creu Dels Mort in Sineu

In every single Mallorcan pueblo, village and town one can find Creus (crosses) that adorn crossroad intersections. A particular fine specimen can be found on Palma’s Avingudas, not far from Plaça d’Espanya, which is dedicated to the memory of a Mallorcan viceroy by name of Pérez de Pomar i Torres and dates from 1645. The creu in today’s photo is another splendid example and can be found in Sineu, on the way out of town heading for Palma and Lloret de Vistalegre. This cross appears to be an exact copy of the original cross from the 16th century in the Neogothic style. The splendid copy dates from 1884 and shows the coat of arms of Sineu as well as the usual church insignia.

The town of Sineu is worth a visit not only for this or other creus or for its weekly market (Wednesdays) but, also for the Palau dels Reis de Mallorca, for its Convent dels Mínims, a former convent but now the seat of the town hall, its parish church of Santa María de Sineu, its Monument a Sant Marc and, last but not least, its number of Cellers and other fine restaurants and bars. A visit would be more rewarding on a weekday other than Wednesday when you have the town more to yourself.

The photo was taken in Sineu, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: September 1st, 2010. The time was 12:05:05.
