Everyone heads to the Cathedral and many miss the beauty of this 13th century Basilica. Walk behind the altar to view religious paintings and smaller chapels. There is great presence to be enjoyed early in the morning by yourself for the meagre entry fee of 3 euros. There is as small cloister garden and plenty of space for reflection.

We enjoyed the visit - we had some difficulty finding it but that's probably just our map-reading! You visit the basilicas and the cloisters - there is an entrance fee - can't remember the amount but not dear.

You will be suprised to find this small oasis of peace in the center of Palma. The squar during semana santa fills up with all the groups taking part of the procesion.

Visited here to se a Christmas concert. It was a fantastic experience, and the acoustics were brilliant. If you ever get the chance to see a concert here, take the opportunity!

Palma de Majorca has a beautiful waterfront and yacht harbor, plenty of shopping and lots of hustle and bustle. For a respite visit the Basillica De Sant Francese. This was built in the 1200's by the Monks of St Frances and is a tribute to the dedication and architecture of the time. As you go in you begin to absorb... More

Reading reviews made me interested in seeing it for myself, so we made a trip especially. The cloisters are so calm and cool, the noise from the streets is strangely muted and you feel a million miles away. I won't rewrite the same words about how lovely it is, you will have to come and see for yourself. This is... More

This is a beautiful simple cloister. The church is a mixture of simple and high baroque with an unusually placed crucifix high up on the altar. The famous Mallorcan mystic Ramon Llull is buried there. Well worth a visit, good for drawing breath away from the busy streets.
