About

Visit the small church of Santa Tecla, or have a refreshment by one of the coze bars next to it

This small church in the centre of Biniamar, was built in first half of the seventeenth century. Two centuries later it was renovated and extended.

This is a very simple construction, with rectangular walls and an irregular heap of stones.

Although these archaic characteristics, the interior shows some early Baroque influences in the use of the barrel vault.

The temple is dedicated Santa Tecla, who guards a relic honored at the festival on September 23 in his name. Santa Tecla corresponds to the provost of Tarragona (Catalonia), whom had a leading part of the conquest of Mallorca.
