TOUR 04. NOSTRA SRA. DELS DOLORS CHURCH.

.

Its construction began at the end of the 19th century and commended by the priest Rubí to naval engineer Josep Barceló Runggaldier, who drew up the designs, and constructor Gaspar Bennàssar, who directed the works and built the bell-tower, the highest building in town known as Torre Rubí.

Apparently this site was a cut place in the Islamic period. It is the place where, after the conquest of Jaume the First, the church of Santa Maria was situated. For this temple was very small, in the 14th century another one was built, which was finished in the 16th century, although the main doorway dates from the end of the 18th. This church was demolished to build the actual church. Some parts of the 18th century still remain, like the chapels of Sant Antoni and Sant Francesc, the towers of the ancient main façade at both sides of the bell-tower, part of the Mother of God sacristy and part of the old bell-tower. Built in the neogothic typology it has a latin-cross floor shaped one-hall basilica with chapels between the buttresses, with its transept arms in the fore section to the presbytery.

There are ten aisles, five on every side, and in the chancel there is one chapel on every side and in the high altar. On every transept arm there are seven chapels, standing out the one consecrated to the immacuate Virgin and the other to the Sant Crist of Manacor.

TOUR 04. ESGLÈSIA NOSTRA SRA. DELS DOLORS.

.

Iniciada a finals del segle XIX per iniciativa del rector Rubí. L’obra fou encomanada a l’enginyer naval Josep Barceló Runggaldier, qui dibuixà els plànols i dirigí l’obra. Gaspar Bennàssar continuà l’obra de Runggaldier i hi construí el campanar.

Pareix que el solar on hi ha la parroquia ja era un lloc de culte en època musulmana. També és el lloc on el 1248, just després de la conquesta de Jaume I, se situava Santa Maria de Manacor, una de les esglèsies esmentades aquell any en una butlla d’Innocenci IV. Com que aquest primera església era molt petita, ja en el segle XIV se n’estava edificant una altra, que s’acabà en el segle XVI, tot i que el portal major era de final del segle XVIII.
