I took a day out of the hotel to explore Palma and the Cathedral with my mother. The Cathedral is well worth a visit if you are sightseeing in Palma, the interior is very ornate and there is a modern art take in one area of the Cathedral. The stain glass windows are beautiful and are at their best around... More

The exterior is very impressive and it is beautiful inside especially all the stained glass windows. I wasn't so impressed with the works of Gaudi; all the old side altars were much more to my taste.

Peaceful and tranquil place to worship and reflect. It has definitely a medieval ambience, but with a few very modern touches, made by Gaudi and some other, even more contemporary artists. Rose is realy big and impressive, throwing in the breathtaking play of light inside. Masses are served in a smaller (more modern) part, which I found a bit sad... More

This is a spectacular high point of Palma. A must see. The outside view brings you to the cathedral because of its ornate architecture. Once you arrive make sure you take a guided tour inside. The guides are very good and take time to answer questions. It is a very busy place so arrive early.

Quite how we managed not to visit the cathedral on our last visit 16 years ago remains a mystery. A beautiful building and very welcoming towards visitors. There wasn't an obvious admission charge as there is with some religious buildings, though a voluntary donation was invited.

Visited this cathedral on a guided trip. The external views of and from the cathedral are amazing. It's in a fabulous setting in the old part of Palma with other attractions nearby. Inside, as you would expect, there are a lot of ornate decorations and windows to photograph. Our guide was very good and knowledgable but lost the interest of... More

We loved visiting the Cathedral. Beautiful with so much history. And the bonus for us was seeing the re-work by Gaudi. We had a choice of a self-guided or guided tour but chose the self-guided. Beautiful stained glass windows and soaring gothic architecture

This is probably the must-see sight on a day in Palma. It isn't one of Europe's most impressive medieval cathedrals, but one of its more interesting ones. The cathedral rises majestically from the Palma waterfront and is worth as much consideration of its exterior as its interior. There are many interesting side chapels all around the cathedral and some magnificent... More
