SANT FRANCESC HOTEL SINGULAR
History & Story
The building of Hotel Sant Francesc once belonged to the Alomar Femenia family. This Spanish historic landmark is an architectural treasure built in the neoclassical style of the 19th century. During the Elizabethan era, houses were often rebuilt to display their owners’ wealth. The hotel is situated in one of Palma’s oldest quarters, which dates to the Arabian Medina Mayurqa settlement. After Jaime I of Aragon, also known as Jaime the Conqueror, was crowned King in 1229, many of the Muslim lands were deeded over to religious orders. Under his son, King Jaime II, Franciscan monks erected the Sant Francesc Basilica and Monastery after which the square and our hotel are named. The total renovation of the original 1880 historic manor house was completed with the utmost respect to the original architecture.
The hotel opened in March 2015
