CAPUCHIN CONVENT OF PALMA
Not much is known about this very enclosed convent of the Capuchin Nuns.
Maybe that exact fact makes it interesting to visit, because you can feel that special silence and inner peace when stepping inside the walls of this convent in Palma.
The Convent of the Purísima Concepción of the Capuchin nuns, founded in 1662, conserves some unique spaces where traditional architecture and objects relating to ancestral tasks remind us of the Mallorca of days gone by.
Sales of home-made sweets helps keeping the convent running and free to visit.
