This is just one of the interesting buildings in Palma. We walked everywhere and this was larger inside than outside. Dramatic inside a torch is handy for the details.

It costs three euros per person to get in to view the incredible 12th century church and the patio area of the cloisters. That's all that you see. Bring a flashlight because it's dark inside. Without a flashlight this placed is not worth going into. Also, the cashier, typical of the area, will want to incorrectly make change and steal... More

Everything in Palma de Mallorca is walking distance, so if you come in a cruise, and get downtown, there is plenty to see or restaurants to visit. I had a "caldo" soup, with potatoes, and beef, and including red house wine and bread...all for 6 euros! (AND the man gave me a second plate! I must have looked hungry...

The Convent of Sant Francesc was situated a short walk from the apartment we were staying in. Every day we passed and thought we must visit so just before our stay ended we did and it was beautiful and so quite, you would not have known that you were in the middle of a city. The architecture is magnificent. I... More

Everyone heads to the Cathedral and many miss the beauty of this 13th century Basilica. Walk behind the altar to view religious paintings and smaller chapels. There is great presence to be enjoyed early in the morning by yourself for the meagre entry fee of 3 euros. There is as small cloister garden and plenty of space for reflection.

We enjoyed the visit - we had some difficulty finding it but that's probably just our map-reading! You visit the basilicas and the cloisters - there is an entrance fee - can't remember the amount but not dear.
