Our first stop of the Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas trip. One of my favorite place. Not far from the port and love the walk around the areas. Lovely shops and cafes. Beautiful cathedral and really enjoyed the places.

Very quiet, not far from the centre. Take a seat in the courtyard and read through the information. Great litte restaurant on the place before the church

We arrived via Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas. We found that the town was very clean with nice older buildings. The street vendors were more entertaining than bothersome like they can be in other tourist areas. We purchased tickets to tour the basilica and found it to be a nice informative tour with beautiful photo opportunities.

Entrance to this building is a very modest 5 euros. In fact the ticket also gives admittance to another 5 linked attractions although I'm not aware of the duration for which the ticket is valid. The cloister really is a joy to behold, it is such a relaxing place to be and very well maintained. The Basilica also proved to... More

It was really big and in front of it there was a statue of a priest who took part in the conquest of America. Really interesting.

Mere blocks from Le Seu (main cathedral) this basilica was a quiet and peaceful respite from the heat and crowds of Palma. Founded by the Franciscans four hundred years ago, this church is well known as a center of learning (Ramon Llull) and the home church of future US Saint Junípero Serra. The cloister, Sacristy and Church together make a... More

Very busy as it is in the centre of Palma . Tourist tour groups everywhere but if you can take time to wander around and take it all in it is absolutely stunning to see and soak up the history of it all.

The amazing quietness inside the church alltogether with the marvellous construction will leave you breathless. The attached cloister may be the best gothic one in Spain. Ramon llull, mallorcan born 1231 and first person ever to write about "something at the other side of trhe great ocean" is buried here.
