I have found another rare sundial, designed in 1851; that would make it 160 years old. The sundial sits prominently above the main portal of Caimari’s Església Vella, the old church. Caimari is a charming little pueblo in the district of Selva, sitting on the foothills of the Serra de Tramuntana, coming to life once or twice a year at the occasion of the olive harvest, the Fira de s’Oliva, and one or two other festivities that the calendar holds, such as the Festes de la Inmaculada in August. Church services are no longer offered at the old church but, instead, are now held at the newer Església de la Inmaculada Concepció. Occasionally, art exhibitions are held at the Església Vella, or an intermittent concert of classical or antique music. The acoustics are quite good.
I have you know that a concert will be held next Sunday, November 27th, at 20h00, as part of the VI Festival Internacional de Música Antiga de Caimari. Admission will be free. Música barroca will be played on Mediaeval instruments. Two more concerts will be held of Música Antiga, but at other venues and, as it happens, not in Caimari itself (November 30th, 2011, and January 7th, 2012).
