Palma Cathedral Le Seu, Palma de Mallorca

(8,000+ reviews on the web)
Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • Well worth the 7 euro entry fee, we didn't bother with an audio guide but just wandered about inside this magnificent building. Gaudi influences are clear to see, the altar is especially amazing. Just...  more »
  • This was the highlight of the walking tour. This church isn't to be missed. Some of the most beautiful I've seen. One of the largest rose stained glass windows in the world.  more »
  • A fabulous marvel not to be missed. 7 Euro entrance well worth it. Morning is best with smaller crowds and great light coming in.  more »
