Museum located in the house where the famous friar spent his childhood. It shows the typical way of life in Mallorca in the 18th century.
Junípero Serra was a friar and priest of the Franciscan order who founded a number of Missions in California. He was born in Petra and sailed for America in 1749. He was canonised in 2015, granting him the title of "Apostle of California".
The museum is a classic Mallorcan architectural work, which has been expanded to display items dedicated to the life and work of Serra. At the entrance, there is a beautiful, manicured garden, with palm trees, a bell from Santa Barbara Mission, an almond tree and a cistern. Under the arcades are more commemorative plaques.
The museum holds treasures like the paintings, prints, medals, sculptures, reliefs, etchings and photographs relating to the work sites of Junípero Serra. All works and objects come from donations.
