The church of Sant Pere (Saint Peter)

The first church of this area was built in the neighboring village of Costitx, in 1236, just few years after the Catalan conquest of the island. However, the bishop of Mallorca soon gave in to a growing congregation and allowed for a church to be constructed on this site.

In 1246, a chapel was built in the name of Sant Pere (Saint Peter).

The construction of the current church began in 1691. The works lasted until 1864, and included successive reforms and extensions.

The parish church is devoted to Saint Peter. A double flight of stairs leads to the main door. The door is furnished with an architrave, fluted jambs and an entablature bearing the date 1738. The pediment above the entablature has a medallion holding a relief of Sant Pere.

The church has a side door that opens to a small square. The door is furnished with jambs in the shape of round pilasters with rings on the lower section. It has a pointed arch. The tympanum has the coat of arms of Sencelles bearing the date of 1707 on the right and a coat of arms with the relief of a tree on the left.

A square bell tower stands on the right of the side door. The cornice is surmounted by a balustrade. From this the tower rises octagonal and is crowned by a pinnacle or pyramid spire.

Inside, the church is formed by a single nave covered by a barrel vault with smaller vaults giving light to the church. It is divided into three sections. It has six side chapels on each side, a choir and a trapezoidal apse.
