Spain. Balearic Islands. Minorca (Menorca). Football field and church. Hermitage Nostra Senyora de Fatima (Ermita de la Mare de Déu de Fàtima) is a catholic church which was erected in 1956 on top of a hill. It was built in order to allow the local farmers to attend mass without having to go down into the capital city, Mahon. The layout of the building comprises a single, longitudinal nave with a semicircular apse. It is built from local red stone and mortar, with the corners, doors and windows reinforced with cut stone. The hermitage has an austere appearance both inside and out. It is located on the eastern coast of the island, which is part of the autonomous community of the Balearic. In Spain, an autonomous community is a first-level political and administrative division, created in accordance with the Spanish constitution of 1978, with the aim of guaranteeing limited autonomy of the nationalities and regions that make up Spain. 9.09.2019 © 2019 Didier Ruef
