Scenic Sunset Cruise for a Small Group

From: €610

The fortified parish church of Banyalbufar is situated just across from the town hall building

The parish church of Banyalbufar, was built during the 16th century to replace another church situated at a lower height, but destroyed by pirates.

Several modifications have given it its present appearance, with a single nave covered with barrel vault and divided into five sections; presbytery and four lateral chapels.

They emphasize a Mare de Déu del Rosal, the altarpiece of Sant Pere de Gaspar Oms dating from 1584, and the magnificent Baroque organ from the XVII century, that was brought from the old Dominican convent in Palma.

The organ of Santa Maria is made in baroque style and from the 17th century. It has a 45-key keyboard with 4 octaves, and the first of these is a short octave characteristic of the late 17th century. It is believed to have been made by the famous Caimari family, great organ builders of Mallorca who have also built the organ of Esglesia de Santa Creu in Palma.

Thanks to the recording of the album Antonio de Cabezon by Spanish organist Antonio Baciero, this organ became world-known.

In 1971, the first major restoration of the instrument was carried out by the German restorer Gerhard Grenzing. In 1994, thanks to the rector Don Bernat Pou and a group of people from the congregation, the second and, for now, latest restoration of the organ by the world-famous Grenzing was carried out. The organ, due to its poor condition and the humidity in the church of Banyalbufar, needed urgent restoration.

The instrument is in great condition and has become known to many visitors thanks to the above and to the many concerts played here during the festivities in Banyalbufar held each year.
