Palma – Royal Monastery of Sant Francesc (Sacristy)

Further to my main post about the Royal Monastery, there was much more to see within the complex of religious buildings. The sacristy, where the priest prepares themselves before the service, is a spacious room which is located just off the main church, through a short passage.

There are two elements of particular interest here, with the first being the large Gothic style altarpiece which dates to the fifteenth century. Secondly, located underneath this, are four paintings which show the life of St. Ursula from the late thirteenth century. As an aside, there’s only church in the UK which is dedicated to St. Ursula, which is at Llangwryfon, in Wales.
