Porch at "El Roser". Ciutadella.

The church of “el Roser” was the work of Joan Amorós (1664-1707) and was concluded in 1705 following the guidelines of an architectural style loosely connected to the Baroque. It was constructed on a site previously occupied by a small church of the same name. The building has a single nave, rib vault roof, with three chapels on each side, a dome covered transept and a semicircular apse. Its facade is particularly outstanding including a richly ornamented porch area, the upper region of the structure in no longer featuring the image of the “Mare de Déu del Roser” which is being restaured.
