Museu Fra Juníper Serra


The Museu Fra Juníper Serra contains mementos of Juníper Serra's missionary life. Next door is the house in which he was born, while all over the streets in this part of town are ceramic depictions of his eventful life. Entry is via the Spiritual Mallorca ticket (€5), which also gets you into five other important religious sites.
