LA CATEDRAL
COME ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF THE MOST PRECIOUS JEWEL OF THE ISLAND

Van emergiendo, de un modo paulatino, encantadoras e inmóviles, las torres, después las doradas murallas y finalmente las casas asentadas en la ribera de la capital de las Baleares. Un alto cerco de montañas de un azul zafiro le sirven de fondo, con su silueta fuertemente diseñada en el eter celeste, formando en conjunto un radiante cuadro"
Archiduque Luís salvador, La ciudad de Palma

The Cathedral of Santa María

This magnificent Gothic building, with construction dating back to the 13th century, on the old Arab mosque site, is not only a place of worship, but also attracts thousands of tourists every year, seduced by its great architectural and photographic appeal. Both its dimensions and its different reformations make the Cathedral an architectural masterpiece. It is seen from a distance which is not common for Gothic cathedrals. They are often embedded between the small houses of the old neighborhoods of the cities. This is not the case here; the Gothic facade of the church is facing the sea and is open to the city. There are graceful flying buttresses topped by pinnacles with crests that can be viewed at eye level.

Quizá el mejor momento para contemplar la fachada del mar de la Catedral, sea en las horas del atardecer de un dia de otoño, de ese otoño mallorquín con puestas de sol fulgurantes, ocasos que tiñen de tonos rojizos todo lo que iluminan"

Great architects, such as Guillem Sagrera or Antoni Gaudí, worked on it. You can also see the wonderful work of local artist Miquel Barceló. If you want to discover all the secrets of the Cathedral and its stories and legends, do not hesitate to contact us!

Quien por primera vez sienta el pié en el umbral de esta iglesia, párase sobrecogido de una impresion como de temor, y la majestad inmensa del interior anonada todo pensamiento terrestre hinche su alma de un ardor sublime"
