Beside the beautiful outside architecture, it's definitely worth a quick peek inside. Even for the non religious among us ;)

Another amazing example of Gaudi's work. It's beautiful on the inside and out - it's definitely worth going inside to wander round. The stained glass looks great with the sun shining in.

Great for photography (no flash please ...). Gaudi didn't do just Barcelona but this time he was a little less "dramatic" in his design. Very pleasing building taking 300 years to build and like Barcelona it still isn't finished appararently. Check out one piece of work by an architect to the right of the main altar causing much criticism which... More

Simply beautiful at any time of the day and from any direction! Don't get too close if you want to take a great photo! If you get there in the right mood you probably won't be able to stop taking photos. I've visit it many times during my stay in the Palma. There are a lot of artists around and... More

Imposing building that dominates the skyline. Even the stone glows in the evening sun. Inside the windows stand out and the alter is stunning. One of the most interesting churches, artifacts, paintings and the history is wonderful. All for e6. We would not have missed it.

The most beautiful building that I have seen and that includes modern projects e.g. Shard,Gherkin. Ornate both inside and outside. 6 Euros entry fee compares favourably with many of the world's tourist attractions. Well worth a visit.

A modest fee gains entry to a fascinating display of religious art forms - sculpture, paintings, and stained glass. In addition to the incredible somewhat anticipated art is the work of Gaudí.

Before I visited a friend told me that this was the most beautiful church she had ever been in ( and she travels a lot) so I went in with high expectations and I was certainly not disappointed. I went with a tour group and physically gasped when I entered the church. It is simply stunning. There is so much... More

Stunning and impressive. Wonderful stained glass with décor and sculpture that are most interesting. Situated in the old part of the capital, visible from the coast road. This is well worth a visit, even if you are not religious and has some other interesting buildings nearby.
