Catedral de Mallorca, Palma de Mallorca

4.6
#1 of 1,176 in Things to do in Majorca
Standing proudly in the middle of the city, Catedral de Mallorca is a Gothic building with sandstone walls and flying buttresses that seemingly rise right out of the sea. Dominating over its surroundings, the building is 121 m (397 ft) long and 55 m (180 ft) wide and was constructed on a massive scale. Designed in the Catalan Gothic style, with numerous Northern European elements, the cathedral was begun in 1229 on the site of a pre-existing mosque, but finished only in 1601. Famed architect Antoni Gaudí participated in a renovation project at the beginning of the 20th century. Managing to complete only a few of his grand ideas, Gaudí quarreled with the contractors, then suddenly abandoned the project. Nevertheless, this vast cathedral remains a major architectural landmark well worth visiting.

  • The cathedral was absolutely breathtaking! The stained glass Windows were gorgeous and provided prisms across the church. The different coves and adoration spaces are beautiful.  more »
  • In the old town there are a number of churches, all of which are worth seeing. The Cathedral with its size and taxes, however, is a must. There is no old taxes, last supper, but also new. Bible story of when Jesus handed out bread and food, as part of his body and wine as part of his blood, are wonderful retold in a painting on the pottery. New and worth seeing!

  • The first thing that you want to visit and get around on all sides. Stop by and admire! Be sure to visit. Might get lucky and get an evening presentation about it.

  • A very nice location , easy to reach. No long lines to enter the building, price to enter 7€ (August 2018). A lot of Interesting views inside with wide space for everyone. bad outta there is no English description for icons, everything is in Spanish. Inside also is so warm, the doors were open from all sides but it still to warm.
  • What can I say? With One of the tallest Cathedral naves in the world, this medieval era building is an exemplary work of gothic architecture. Having been to the cathedral at Cologne, we had some pretty high expectations and we were not disappointed. Please do visit and appreciate this wonderful human endeavor. Also, don’t be rude and click pictures with flash. Unlike some people😡
  • Beautiful, impressive and massive architectural achievement. The surroundings are no less impressive. After close inspection be sure to admire it from longer distance to enjoy the full landscape of the cathedral. Check the opening hours before heading there, we went too late and couldn't go inside, which I believe is a big loss.
  • Amazing.. amazing place.. I could just stay at this place for hours! They really do make efforts to restore the place and make all the ornaments.. statues.. everything! Is really a must to visit!
  • Stunning, absolutely stunning work if labor and art. It was quite hot here during the heat wave. Visiting isn't for the faint at heart, stay hydrated and cool. And remember God is Love.
