Pretty church

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.

Beautiful cloisters and a stunning church. This was a welcome oasis amongst the hustle of Palma. Well worth the €5 entry which also allows you to visit 5 other sites over the course of 12 months.

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.
