Palma Cathedral Le Seu#5 in Best Things To Do in Mallorca
The Palma Cathedral Le Seu – or simply Catedral de Mallorca – started out as a mosque. But after the city fell to the French conqueror James I of Aragon, what would become centuries worth of work on the cathedral commenced. The finished product is a Gothic masterpiece, which overlooks the Bay of Palma to the south and features a spectacular pediment depicting the Last Supper. Inside, must-sees include the giant, circular rose window (one of the world's largest stained-glass windows) that measures nearly 40 feet in diameter, and Antoni Gaudí's canopy that hovers above the main altar.
Since it's a fixture in the Mallorca skyline, the exterior of the cathedral can't be missed. But its interior is just as stunning, according to recent travelers. Visitors were especially in awe of the cathedral's magnificent stained glass and the overall peaceful ambiance.
Admission to the cathedral costs 7 euros (about $8). You'll find it just south of the city center, right on the Bay of Palma and next to the Parc de la Mar. The cathedral is open to visitors Monday through Saturday beginning at 10 a.m.; closing times vary by month. Keep in mind, this is a place of worship and as such a dress code is enforced (shoulders should be covered, shorts should be of appropriate length and beachwear and open-toed shoes are not allowed). For more information, including Mass times, visit the Palma Cathedral Le Seu website.
