This is the Church of the Roser, in Citadel (Minorca)
In the background is the Cathedral.
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.

here in Italy the Balearics are known almost exclusively for the nightlife, especially Ibiza, but they have really delightful glimpses.As this that you show to us.A beautiful architectural view describing in all its details the façade of this former church.Light well managed and i believe it wasn't so easy as it seems.

Hola Carlos ,
Qué bonita luz y vista de Ciudadela ! Me gusta el aroma de verano y cómo los tonos rosáceos atenuan la fuerte luz .
Ahora mismo estoy viviendo en Ciudadela . Me gustó más que Mahón para vivir (pese a que Alaior , donde soy el Notario , queda más cerca de esta última ) , y me siento como en un sueño , como estando en vacaciones todo el rato .

Marvellously sharp photo, this, and an excellent exposure of the combination of bright reflected light on one side and shadow on the other. As Alessio says, most people would not think of this kind of architecture in a quiet street if you mentioned Minorca. These are beautiful, elegant buildings. Superbly presented and good note.

Que buena composicion y que belleza las dos fachadas de las iglesias, es toda una explosion de arte este rincon. Me encanta la portada de esta primera iglesia.
La composicion tiene una calidad de imagen soberbia, la buena luminosidad y el bonito color natural, son tambien elementos importantes, para el resultado final de este gran trabajo.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
