The Santa Ana Chapel in Muro

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.

The photo was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Muro, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: March 10th, 2011. The time was 14:01:16.

  1. Last June we went to Muro to find the Museo de Mallorca having first read about it in your blog posting ‘A Delicate Balance’ dated 25 May 2010. We parked outside this chapel, exactly where there is the back of a car in your photo, and looking inside I was struck by the peace and tranquillity of the building despite its small size and location near the centre of the town. It pays to keep your eyes open and explore, you never know what delights you will find!
