PLACA FRAI JUNIPERO SERRA
About Plaça Fray Junípero Serra
Plaça Fray Junípero Serra, is the cozy little square in the heart of Petra.
The sculpture of Junípero Serra, was made by William Galmés in 1913, exactly 200 years after the birth of him. The pedestal, is made from Santanyí stones.
The benches surrounding the small plaza, are made of stone from the Convent of Sant Bernadí, where Junípero Serra recieved his religious education. In 2013, Morus was planted next to the palm trees, as a symbol of the 300 years celebration.
