We travelled to Palma for the day while on holiday in Mallorca and decided on a walk from the bus station on the recommendation of the tourist office. I'm glad we did. It was a beautiful day and the walk from the central station is about 15-20 minutes through some really pretty narrow streets with plenty of shops - retail... More

Yes the location of the cathedral is unique and with the sunshine it could be pleasure. But i have seen much more beautiful church all over europe and this one is not in my top 5. Nothing amazing. If you need to save a little bit money just stay outside, take picture, visit the little street around its nice

Nothing prepares you for the glorious nave, high altar and the fabulous Gaudi decoration. Barcelona has an unfinished cathedral created by Gaudi; Palma has a finished version which takes one's breath away. The decoration is art deco and very beautiful and colourful. The bishop who commissioned it in the early 20th century certainly was visionary to permit Gaudi to alter... More

A beautiful cathedral well worth the visit but there are loads of steps to enter it. It costs €6 each to enter

The whole area around the cathedral is worth a visit, really fascinating Palma is one of my favourite cities. The seafront and the Marina are great for a stroll and the ambience in the cafes and restaurant is just wonderful. We go to Majorca for our holidays regularly and a visit to Palma is always top of my to do... More

Most cathedrals which are beautiful from the outside disappoint inside, but not this one. When you step inside your breath is taken away by the beauty. Especially magnificent are the stained glass windows, some religious and others purely decorative. Go on a sunny day to enjoy them at their best. Also impressive are the various chapels, some very modernist in... More

On our recent trip to Europe (cruising the mediterranean sea), one of our stops was Palma Majorca, Spain. This Cathedral right near the port was the most beautiful cathedral of all that we visited in Europe during this trip. The sheer size of it and how it's been maintained is amazing. The stained glass windows are just beautiful. We loved... More
