    If you do the terraces,THERE ARE LOTS OF STEPS
    Really worth a visit and absolutely beautiful, if you book a terraces ticket, it’s not at all clear on the website or when you arrive that there’s a VERY long winding narrow climb up hundreds of steps to get up there. U need to be fit! It should be made clearer so wanted to put this review to make people aware. Views are amazing and worth it but the tickets are very expensive for the terraces so if you’re in a budget consider getting the cheaper tickets for just the cathedral which is beautiful and then get the bus up to Bellver castle which has equally good views of the city.

    Stunning Cathedral
    I paid the 20 euros price to get entry and access to the galleries, which seeing the queues outside i was glad i did as we went straight through and into the cathedral. It seems so much bigger inside than it looks from the outside even though from outside it appears massive, once you step inside it seems to reach epic proportions. The way up to the galleries is on a very narrow steep spiral staircase of around 160 steps which are really not suitable for anyone with any difficulties in mobility, the views from atop the cathedral over the city and the harbour are stunning, as is the view towards the mountains and Bellver castle. Once back on the ground the walk around the cathedral's many chapels is a walk back in time to a period when christianity was at its peak and money was no object to devotion, the amount of time and money spent on these chapels is incredible. However the one chapel which stands out the most is the newest one by Miquel Barcelo, it looks completely different to all the other sin the cathedral but it is this difference which makes it so impressive

    Stunning!
    We visited the Cathedral when spending a day in Palma and is definitely the main attraction in the area. By going out of season it wasn't to busy and we bought tickets for 20 euros each at the door to go into the building, up to the terrace roof and into the museum which is across from the cathedral. We started by going up the winding staircase to the roof which I wouldn't advise if you have mobility or breathing issues. The exercise is very much worth it though as the top gives you beautiful views for miles from both sides of the cathedral. The inside of the cathedral itself is stunning with incredible colored glass windows. The museum across from the cathedral is also interesting.

They need to limit the number of visitors at anyone time or plan a visit schedule. 3 cruise ships in port. It was totally packed when inside. Very little shade when waiting to get inside. Lots of building works at lakeside. Beggars and street sellers outside I must agree with many reviews when I say not very impressed with architecture, may be I am missing something! I would not recommend a visit here at any price.

A must when visiting the city. Had read very positive reviews online, and is true to say it is definitely worth a trip to see the Cathedral.
We decided to visit on a day when the weather was particularly unpleasant. We arrived soon after opening as had read the entry queues can be quite lengthy, we only has to wait around 10 minutes. Nice friendly staff upon arrival, at the time of our visit entry was 8 euros. It is worth the money. You can make the trip as long or short as required and you are given the option to purchase an audio guide. Our stay lasted around 40 minutes.
Beautiful architecture and attention to detail throughout the cathedral, the grandeur is very impressive.
A nice selection f items to purchase in the gift shop also

Great place to see but get there before the hoards descend from the cruise ships. It gets busy and because they’re on a time schedule, they are all impatient and have no time to wait and view things. Instead push in front, moan to take a picture and then move on.
Also research more about the Terraces before you book them. These are roof terraces and accessed via the 150+ steps up a narrow spiral stair case. Also if you suffer with vertigo think twice. Once you have climbed the stairs and are at roof height you will exit via a 3 foot walkway area, then down a short slope to the main building terrace. The sides of the walkway area has a fence or rail along it but also has clear a view down, as they have used a netting/mesh fencing for “security “ on the sides. It’s not the safety aspect but just the very openness of that view down.
Also paying €11 not to know about these points is very poor. The steps, if unfit or immobile (you’ll just hold crowds of people up) and the vertigo inducing feeling once up on the roof.
That said, for everyone else the views are great….per the pictures my wife showed me.

Would I recommend it, yes. Is it cheap, no.

Well, you certainly wouldn't expect to find one of Europe's grandest and most beautiful Cathedrals on an island famous for its beaches, leisure and night scene.
Saying that, visiting the Palma Cathedral should be high on your list as a culture activity in between sunbathing.
The Cathedral is located in Palma old town among other attractions. The construction started as early as 13 c, lasted over centuries with different styles adding - among the latest being the Gaudi wrought ironwork.
The interiors (9 Euros entry fee) are simply stunning, one of the most beautiful stained glass I've ever seen, as well the main altar.
Imo, there's no need to climb the terraces because of a pretty expensive fee above these 9 Euros (total 20 if I remember correctly).
Similar views of entire city and bay including the Cathedral itself you can have from the Bellver castle for 4 Euros.

We booked online - €7 each as we are over 65 - and visited this morning. Somehow the cathedral felt smaller inside than it did from the outside but it was still magnificent. The stained glass windows shone colours onto the interior and it was interesting to see the different chapels. Incidentally I find it odd to read complaints about having to pay to go in: why not if you are visiting as a tourist? You can always go to a service for free.

The cathedral is open until 1415 for tourists and is worth getting to early to avoid the coach parties. This is a medieval cathedral on the site of the old mosque that has evolved over the centuries. Particularly worth seeing is the Gaudi designed chapel which is a masterpiece. Coming early in the morning the light streams through the wonder east facing high altar stained glass window.

The cathedral is soaring with rows of stained glass and a Gaudi chapel. Well worth a visit and grander than you'd expect for a church not on the mainland. Unfortunately the opening hours are very short - closes by early afternoon.

Wonderful architecture and some interesting history thanks to the audio guide which was well worth the 4 euros extra. Price for entry is extremely steep though compared to other nearby attractions. Without the audio guide you would be done in 10-15 ‘inures and even with the initial 9 Sauria feels steep compared to what is on offer at the nearby palace and castle for much cheaper with much more interesting history and things on show. Glad I went but did feel I had overpaid.

We visited on one of only two opportunities each year to see the reflection of the rose window at one end of the cathedral as the sun shines through it to form a figure ‘8’ when combined with the rose window at the other end.

The queue starts at around 7am and entry is from around 8am until 8.30am. If the sun shines (which it did the day we were there) the figure ‘8’ appears at approx 9am.

It’s quite beautiful and, for me, the build up was almost as good.

Don’t even think of queue jumping though!

Palma landmark and it's most popular tourist attraction. Definitely a "must see" when visiting the city.
It doesn't open until 10am but arriving for this time is a good idea as you can avoid some of the tour parties. When we visited there was only one ( very large) cruise ship in port but by the time we had finished looking around the Cathedral there were numerous passengers arriving in large groups.
The most impressive part of the building is the Gothic Rose Window which is positioned on the east side to catch the morning sun. It's huge and the colours of the glass "lit up" by the sun are amazing.
Plenty of other sights to look at in the building and there are small ( free) guides in a variety of languages which explain the different chapels.
We stayed in Palma for a few days and liked seeing the Cathedral at different times of the day including some views from our hotel roof terrace.
When you see it with the blue sea in the background and the sun out it is a stunning sight.
Also good as a focal point when walking around the city. If you are lost just look for the Cathedral!
