The audio tour is excellent and the cathedral is beautiful beyond words. So much history here, and the various restorations and improvements over the years are well done.

We were in Palma for Christmas last year and decided to go to hear the Es-Sibila, a UNESCO Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage, at the Christmas Eve mass. The church was packed but there's always room at the back. The altar was spectacular, decorated with lights and garlands. I'm not a regular Christmas churchgoer but this was really special.

This is truly a spectacular cathedral. We had seen pictures of the church from the water at night with the image reflected on the water while we were researching the trip. We got to visit in the morning and the sun lit stained glass brought the inside to life. Christianity has been practiced since the 400's AD and survived the... More

A wet Saturday in Palma, what to do? Go and visit the Cathedral. It stands imposingly over the bay and is amazing. The outside is a work of art in itself with magnificent gargoyles and outstanding architecture. The entrance is around the back of the Cathedral. Inside the fee of €6 seems very reasonable and you get a hand held... More

Fantastic cathedral visit. Took advantage of the free audio guide which we don't usually use, but it was definitely worthwhile.

The Cathedral of Light as it is sometimes called is an absolutely apt name for this wonderful building. We visited in the morning when the sun was streaming through the beautiful stained glass windows and the reflections on the stone walls inside were quite magical. We had read that the building was more impressive from the outside than when you... More

Beautiful building, stunning to wander around and enjoy the architecture and the detail of the sculpture throughout the building. Visiting it on my own I struggled to find any signs for tours or entrance which was disappointing. Not being confident with the language at all made it quite overwhelming considering how busy it is. A definite tourist trap but well... More

You have to pay 6 Euro just to get in and look around. Of course it is very impressive and definetely worth taking some pictures in front and inside. But you have to decide on your own if you want to pay that much just to watch some great windows and statues inside or just take some great pictures in... More
