The neogothic Esglesia Nova of Son Servera is the work of architect Joan Rubió, disciple and collaborator of Gaudi.
Rubió Bellver extensive works can be enjoyed throughout Cataluña, Mallorca and Menorca, and include other emblematic buildings, such as the Bank of Sóller, or the door of Santa Maria Cathedral in Ciutadela.
This church comes from a modernist period. It was built between 1909 and 1929, but construction had to be halted due to lack of finance.
It has a pointed opening and rose windows, as well as an open apse. It is accessed by a small garden, the latest renovation works have opted to continue this inside the church, marking the concept of communion between the building and the heavens, highlighting the feeling of spirituality that the decorated side chapels with capitals provide.
During the San Juan festivities in Son Servera, the church hosts evening concerts with performances that range from jazz and rock, to sixties’ and classical music. The folklore group “Sa Revetlla” also performs their traditional Majorcan dances in the church during the summer evenings.
The church was the home of the Son Servera Serenates d’Estiu (Summer Serenades) and open-air masses are held every Sunday in the summer.
