Create an itinerary including Catedral de Mallorca
Standing proudly in the middle of the city, Catedral de Mallorca 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.

  • A beautiful Cathedral and well worth a visit. But save yourself €4 and don’t bother with the audio guide. I never get these and prefer to just wander around, but my wife got them. Audio quality is fine, but an hour later and I’m still looking for the effin’ bell tower it tells you about at the start and mentions over and over again. Some good info on it you might not otherwise read though. Rant over, come and see this beautiful building, it really is worth a visit. 😎
  • Definitely a must visit if you come to Palma on Mallorca. This beautifully crafted building is awe-inspiring. Take your time to absorb the atmosphere and the amazing level of the detail. I can definitely recommend visiting the terraces too. Not only do they give you a different look at the building, but you get an amazing view of the city too. I recommend ordering some tickets online, we were inside after only 5 minutes ✌️
