Church in Artà

This church, built atop the foundations of a Moorish mosque, was begun soon after the Christian reconquest, although the facade – restored in 2016 – dates to the 16th century. Inside, note the large rose window, the ornately carved mahogany pulpit and the 14 chapels in the nave. There's also a small museum exhibiting artefacts such as precious altarpieces and a silver cross bearing a sliver of Palma Cathedral's relic of the True Cross (brought here in 1512).
