4.6/5 based on 6,500+ reviews on the web
Standing proudly in the middle of the city, Palma Cathedral Le Seu 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.

  • Really liked it. 2:00 flown by imperceptibly in the Cathedral, beautiful. You can take the Audi Guide brochure. But it is better to read about this place in advance.
