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.

  • Awesome place can be a mini walk if you enter mass schedule and are respectful and quiet. Once finish make you out but it is a way to see it without paying the ticket. It is the Cathedral close to the sea. There is no more beautiful monument on the island of Mallorca. Why Gaudí and Barceló that are worth discovering. The opinion will be served. Almudaina is located next to it.

  • Surprising by its grandeur and the combination of styles, including Gaudi's and, more recently, Barceló, with a very original chapel decorated by this artist. The visitor should not only be with the external image.
