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.

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

We visited this Basilica in Palma after we had been to the Cathederal. What a difference! No crouds of tour guides and really a house of God. It is a a wonderful place to just sit and reflect in the peace and quiet which is not found outside. There is a small cafe opposite where you can get a cool... More
