Palma Cathedral Le Seu, Palma de Mallorca

(4.6/5 based on 7,500+ 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.

  • Couldn't complain about the cathedral at all, it was so beautiful and for only €7. It was very busy, but when is something as beautiful as this cathedral not going to busy? Photography (but not flash)...  more »

  • Throughout the visit is highly recommended, but if you have the opportunity to visit the rooftops; It is a guided tour and must be booked in advance, but the views are incredible.
