History of the Church of Santa Gertrudis

The Church Of Santa Gertrudis Martyr began its construction in 1785, ending the work at the end of the same century. It has many similarities with the rest of the island’s churches, fulfilling its religious and defensive mission, although due to its situation in the middle of the island, it was safe from maritime attacks. It presents a very unusual colour, mixing the typical white facade with details in vivid orange tones that offer a more artistic composition. The porch of the entrance, built towards the end of the NINETEENTH century, has a peculiar image of Christ on the front door. Moreover, the lateral walls differ considerably from the rest of the churches, since one contains numerous doors and windows, atypical in this type of constructions, that make think of an additive after the original building, next to the furnace located in the opposite wall.
