A place where prayer is valid

Stunning church with lovely stained glass and fascinating history but a feel of spirituality, a wonderful place to pray quietly where prayers are heard.

One of Palma's oldest churches, in Gothic style. The cloisters are peaceful. However, the main interest lies in the connection with Ramon Lllull, who is credited with being the creator of the Catalan language - you can look for his marble effigy half way up the wall in the first chapel on the right. Outside is a statue of Junipero... More

Very ornate interior. Little of great interest. A medieval church with early modern altars and fittings. Typically Spanish.

Visited this place in June 2015. The Basilica has stood the history of conquest and fall of kingdoms and being taken over again by other kings to be developed. Overlooking the sea, it also provides a beautiful view. Walking through the narrow streets after exiting the Basilica was also a wonderful experience. The bylanes had good shopping and had street...

Breathtaking and more than a little overwhelming. Try a walk around the cloisters if possible to get a feel for what this place must have been like in bygone days.

A beautiful church well worth a visit if you are in the Old Quarter of Palma. It is difficult to describe this Church as there is so much to see. There is also a Cloister which is open during the day for visitors.

After visiting many of the spectacular cathedrals in mainland Spain as well as the Palma cathedral, this look more like the 'common man's' church. It was quite beautiful and worth the visit. It is a short walk from the Palma Cathedral as everything is pretty centrally located in Palma.

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
