The Franciscan monks built the Convent of Sant Francesc in 1281 with the support of King James II. It took a hundred years to finish the building. The monks worked here for about 500 years. In 1835 the Spanish Government expropriated all the property of the Church and the 140 monks who lived here had to abandon the convent. In... More

The church is hidden in the quiet streets and is an inspiring sight once you get inside the door. We took a moment to reflect and drank in the atmosphere. Worth a look, it's very central and is special.

San Fransisco Church is a beautiful church worthwhile visiting. Its location is a bit quiet off the busy streets close to Born but within walking distance to the Cathedral in one of Europes most interesting towns today. Palma de Mallorca.

Doesn't look much from the outside but the inside is a real revelation. As worth going to see as the Cathedral itself

Beautiful cloisters and a huge church with amazing altar. Not much to see for the eur3 entry fee but well worth it for the peace and quiet. It is very warm inside

This was our 2nd visit to this wonderful Basilica. We can't visit Palma without making a pilgrimage here. The place is so peaceful and to be able just to sit and reflect is perfect. Don't miss the astonishing cloisters. This is highly recommended to both believers and non-believers as you can't fail to feel impressed.

Walked this way and just had to go in. The cool and calm atmosphere inside is a wonderful change to the heat and bustle of the city. It was a Sunday and a service was being held so we were lucky to get in. Not sure it's always open, so check before you make a special trip. Stunning church.

Really pleased we took the time to visit. We had a very friendly welcome and spent quite a bit of time exploring both the main building and the cloisters which were very beautiful and welcome time out from the hustle and bustle of Palma. We particularly enjoyed our 'taster' shot of the rather strong spirit that they make and sell... More
