CREU DE RANDA
The Cross of Randa in this same street, also known as “Coremer” (Lent Preacher), dates back to 1846. The obverse upper section of the cross portrays a sculpted Christ facing Southwest, while the reverse side, facing Northeast, is a relief of the Immaculate Virgin Mary with the figure of Ramon Llull who worships her; there are also reliefs that depict the Passion of Christ. It has a base in the form of four steps which enclose the stem.
How to find the cross of Randa
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.
