The Splendid Santanyí Organ

The finest historical organ on the island is without any doubt the one in Santanyí, built by Jordi Bosch in 1765 for the Convento de Santo Domingo (Monastery of the Order of the Dominicans) in Palma. In 1837, the convent in Palma was divested and the organ was sold to the parish church of Sant Andreu in Santanyí. Some say that this organ comes with the largest mixture in the world, a total of 1,104 pipes. The photo was borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of Hauptwerk.com. Thank you very much.
