Another must-see attraction in Palma, this basilica is very beautiful. There is also a stunning cloister to visit. It's well worth a visit.

This is one of the main churches in Palma. Okay it's not the stunning Cathedral, and it's not the prettiest BUT it boasts arguably the best Church Organ in Mallorca and a Concert tradition of the highest order. As a Concert Organist, it's top of my list of places to play in Mallorca. AND the whole building and ambience is... More

Really good value admission at €1.50 which takes you into a lovely calm cloister. But the contrast when you enter the church is astounding as almost the first thing you see is the high altar piece, huge and elaborate. The side chapels have similar if slightly smaller altar pieces. Great church to visit. If the high altar is gloomy there's... More

A small but attractive church and its free to get in. There are attractive paintings and such and it represents a peaceful place amongst the melea of shops that surround it.

This was well worth the trip. It's only small but perfectly formed and the side chapels are so beautiful, lots of guilding and eye pleasers. Just make sure it's open, we came on a Sunday and had to come back in the week.
