The old Gothic hospice in Sineu, is a great sight to any architecture lover, or if you can appreciate beautiful buildings!
The hospice building, was the very first of its kind in Mallorca, and documented first time in 1294.
Casa Hospicio, was under protection of the parish, and served as a chapel for many years. Inside, there was a stunning altarpiece with the image of Saint George on his white horse. The altarpiece was made by Francesc Gomes, and later restored by Rafel Guitard in 1567, and is now kept in the Majorca Museum in Palma.
Throughout centuries, the old Gothic hospice building, was used by officials.
The old hospice, consists of two separate building constructions. The first, was the hospice (no longer in use), the second is a still functioning chapel.
The building that served as hospice, was built in 1621. The entrance door, is built in Gothic style, with a beautiful carving over it, displaying the immaculate conception, made by Sebastià Alcover.
At the corner of the property, you will see the massive entrance to the chapel. Enjoy this amazing piece of Gothic architecture, with the little bell tower on the top.
You can also enjoy the old courtyard, with its many orange trees and the little well in the middle, very idyllic!
