ESGLÉSIA DE IMMACULADA I RAMON LLULL
It was built in the years from 1765 to 1770 and became a parish Church in 1913. The facade has a lintel doorway and a niche with the image of the Beatified Ramon Llull in the entablature and a Rose window with multi-colored stained glass.
The belfry is on the right, with five sections, balcony, and tower with windows and a dome crown. The interior, is with a barrel vault roof and has four chapels on the left side and three chapels on the right. Notice the splendid Sant Josep chapel, with its late Baroque altarpiece thanks to the patronage of the Sastre d’Estahacar family. The Capella del Sagrari (Tabernacle Chapel) with the Morell d’Albenya coat of arms has an image of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, dating back from the 16th Century. The main altar with its Baroque style, is presided by the image of Ramon Llull.
The Sacristy, a groined vault ceiling, conserves the canvass which formerly presided the main altar with scenes from the life of Ramon Llull, as well as the portrait of the chronicler and provost, Guillem Terrassa.
How to get to the church of the Immaculada and Ramon Llull
Algaida is a typical rural area found in the most southern part of the region called “es Pla de Mallorca”, a place where agricultural traditions are still commemorated in the local spirit. Algaida is, however, also a place of great diversity, both in its landscapes and when it comes to the things you can do here. There are a bunch of local points of interest to see such as the parish church of Sant Pere i Sant Pau, the old stone croosses in the streets, the famous Cura sanctuary, the Xina windmill and the medieval chapel of Castellitx built immediately after the Catalan conquest of the island. But there is also the famous Gordiola glass factory and the Modelmon interior design showroom. Algaida also celebrates its traditions several times a year with entertaining festivals in the town, absolutely worth attending for a cultural input.
