Some of the most distinguished Majorcan work of the fifteenth century, between 1420 and 1452, and was done by the sculptor and architect Guillermo Sagrera, who built the “Lonja” of Palma. In one of the doorways of this building stands the splendid figure of an archangel, revealing an extraordinary mastery of technique. The exterior of the building has some expertly executed gargoyles. The interior with its slender columns and fine vaulting is a wondeful piece of Mediterranean gothic.
