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

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.

Once you've had your fill of busy tourist posts and perhaps the people filled cathedral, wander around to here. So peaceful and calm until the school comes out - but you can enjoy watching all the youngsters and their parents, usual brief madness then a return to tranquillity.
