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

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

a wow effect when you walk in , the church has a very old wooden roof top and is much bigger than you would expect from the outside - clearly worthwhile to have a look at
