Palma Cathedral Le Seu, Palma de Mallorca
(4.6/5 based on 7,000+ 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.

  • If you have been on Mallorca and haven't seen a Cathedral it ... do not pass you have this trip:))) beauty towering majestically over the city which overlooks building immense. Obligatory photo next to it, if you have more time in the middle. Some go there because of the Gaudi ... but there is not. Due to the Gaudi is going to Barcelona;) Mallorca has a much more interesting places:)

  • Fascinating building. Incredibly well built with a small lake in the area. A must when you visit the cosy narrow streets North of the Cathedral to the East of the crossing del born.

  • Fantastic Cathedral with beautiful rosettes. It has a mixture of elements from different periods as the canopy by Gaudí and a mural of Barcelo
