The Courtyard Of The Montesión College

Sadly, some of the nicest courtyards in Palma de Mallorca are not accessible to the public, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Take for instance the patio (courtyard) of the Colegio de Nuestra Señora de Montesión. You can get in there if you happen to be a student of that Jesuit secondary school, or a teacher, neither of which I am. Thus, I was only once able to enter that courtyard a number of years ago. Then, there was a concert going on, hence the red carpet and the chairs in the photo (above). I have since tried on numerous occasions to gain entrance for the sole purpose of taking a better photograph, but to no avail. The building dates from the early 17th century and the patio retains some of the original features such columns, arches, a well and so forth. Last Summer, I was told that another concert would be held soon on the occasion of the 450th anniversary of the foundation of that institution, but, I either missed that event or it has not happened yet. In any case, here’s my photo (above) as well as a slightly better one from the Montesión‘s page on Facebook.

The photo (top) was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 7th, 2004. The time was 20:40:53. The photo (bottom) was borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of Facebook.com and the Antiguos Alumnos del Colegio Montesión.

Thank you very much, and

Muchas gracias.
