Information and Situation to Sencelles
Sencelles is a locality with a name that caused a lot of speculations. Some claim that Sencelles means “cent selles” (a hundred jugs), others say it means “cent celles” (a hundred cells), in turn others derive the name from Centelles (sparkle, glitter). It will never be possible to clear it – however, the name is very nice. The village Sencelles is located in the centre of the island and therefore it is easy to reach. Here, in the centre of “Pla” on the island you can sense an original atmosphere, the Majorcan people who live here are deeply religious, they adore the nun Francinaina Cirer (1781 – 1855), who was known as “di sa Tia Xiroia” in the locality.
In 1.10.1989 she was beatified by pop Johannes Paul II. Almost every house has her picture on the wall, tightened close to the house door. The day of her memorial takes place on the 27 of February, on the 15 of August the “Maare de Deu” is celebrated. Always on Wednesday the market stalls are prepared in front of the church, on the square of the locality.
