THE ROSER
The Roser, the former church of Ours Lady of the Roser, was constructed between the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. It is located on The Roser Street and noted for its nineteenth-century bell tower.

It is one of the most interesting examples of the Baroque Minorcan period, from single nave covered with vaults of edge, with three chapels on each side and a cruise, which has the same width as the nave, covered with a dome topped with a lantern. What more surprises of the interior is the utilization of the rifling of the stone of marès in almost all the ornaments of arches, jonquils and edges of the vaults, as well as the vaults of shell that finish off the ceilings of the chapels and the great balance of proportions of the interior space. At present it is used as an exhibition hall and inside are made throughout the year numerous cultural events.
