The Sindicat

The Sindicato Agrícola y Caja Rural de Sant Medín, later known as Celler Cooperatiu or simply, Es Sindicat, was founded 93 years ago this month in Felanitx in 1921. Construction of the mighty building was carried out between 1921 and 1923. The co-operative association went into receivership in 1991 and the property was acquired via auction by Senyor Pau Ripoll Pol from Binissalem and a group of shrewd British investors. Now, the Ajuntament of Felanitx wants to acquire the property in the midst of some heated and polemic debate for a stately sum. The photo was taken in 1959 during the wine harvest season, courtesy of Arxiu Pere Xamena.
