Creus

The convent of Sant Francesc (San Francisco) in Palma is always a good place to visit and in particular so for its beautiful cloisters. Now, there is an added bonus available for those who might need a little prodding to go out and visit places. The Bisbat de Mallorca (the very bishop himself) and the Mallorcan artist, Jaume Falconer, got together to organise a rather impressive exhibition of large format paintings right in the cloisters’ covered galleries. The subject matter of the paintings is Creus (crosses). The composition of the 14 paintings on show amounts to a kind of Vía Crucis.

Access to the cloisters and the exhibition is through the Colegi de Sant Francesc. Normally, admission is charged at 1.50 Euros but admission to the exhibition is waved. The paintings are on view until March 9th.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: February 24th, 2011. The time was 17:16:26.
