Very nice visit here, during which it was really quiet. For the time I spent I did find the price a bit too much (even if you can visit other churches with the same ticket, one does need the oppertunity to do that)

Though was surprised to see lots of gilt and glitter in a francescan church - it is a good and quiet place to visit.

What a tranquil place! I had read about this lovely church in my Majorca guidebook as well as TA and had it down as a must-do on our four day city break in Palma. We loved that fact that there is a school based here, a sign of the continuation of use down the centuries. We arrived, via the cloisters,... More

Interesting, but not a must see. When buying the ticket, you can also visit a few other attractions.

Maybe because the visit to the Cathedral was spectacular this church which is nearby looked a little drab although it really was quite a large and quite impressive. Definitely worth a visit.

This is an outstanding church and cloisters that should not be missed if you are visiting central Palma.

Entering via the cloisters, you will be captivated by the serenity, unless it's a break time for the children at the school on the upper levels! The basilica has a magnificent altarpiece. One of the chapels contains the sepulchre of Blessed Ramon Llull, a prominent philosopher and mystic for whose canonisation we are asked to pray. Believers and non believers... More

We rarely miss a chance to visit a cloister, so we stopped by the Basilica de Sant Francesc. Alas, we found it just average. All of the parts were there, but we have seen many that had more interesting architecture, decorations and history.

not worth the price. it seems from other reviews the prices has increased from 3 to 5 euros. Nothing spectacular the only memory i take away is expensive ticket price.

I'm sorry but you are wrong. 5 € includes a visit to the 6 most spectacular spaces of the religious heritage of Mallorca. We invite you to use the ticket for all spaces than for 5 € we make available. More
