AN exhibition of the treasures of the Capuchine convent in Calle Capuchinas (behind the Rambla) opens today and can be visited until January 7 (with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year's Day). Exhibits include a 19th century cupboard, 17th century paintings, an 18th century chasuble, and vases of Mexican origin.
The exhibition is arranged in different scenes, such as a Majorcan house and a refectory, with a special section dedicated to the Morell family, descendants of the first Marques of Solleric, who was a benefactor of the convent. The exhibition is complemented by the convent's Nativity Scenes, with five display cases from the 18th and 19th centuries.
The power company GESA has collaborated in restoring many of the exhibits. Admission costs three euros (under 10s, free).
