The chapel of Santa Ana in the village of Muro was the first parish church in that pueblo, possibly dating from the 14th century. Once Muro’s population had grown beyond the capacities of this small temple, a new church was built, the Parroquia Sant Joan Baptista, which celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2011. Instead of demolishing the small chapel, it was dissembled and then lovingly reconstructed in its new position. However, some fifty years ago it had to be moved again stone by stone, when the road had to be widened.
This chapel in the heart of Mallorca is a place of serenity and peacefulness. If ever you feel like leaving it all behind, the noise, the pollution, La Crisis, modern civilization, unemployment, corruption, inflation, the Euro circus, a visit to Santa Ana may serve to refresh your mind and your spirits. And I am talking here in a non-religious sense.
