Hotel La Seu Palma Cathedral


La Seu Palma Cathedral is an example of a Gothic style cathedral. Its sandstone coloured walls form part of the city's old walls and it is often said that its buttresses appear to rise straight out of the sea. Construction of the cathedral began in the 13th century but it took over 400 years to complete. According to legend the first stone was laid by Jaume 1 the day after Palma fell to the Christians in 1230, it was symbolically built on the site of the city's main mosque. In 1851 an earthquake damaged the cathedral and a large part of it had to be rebuilt. Inside the cathedral there is a small museum but most visitors come to see the Rose Window, at over 12 metres across, this is one of the largest stained glass windows in the world and contains over 1200 individual pieces of coloured glass. Other things to see include a wrought iron candelabra that was designed by Guadi and his unfinished Crown of Thorns, which is one of his most controversial pieces of art. The Crown of Thorns is made from cork and paper and is suspended above the altar. The La Seu Palma Cathedral is open daily for visitors from 9am until 7pm. Admission prices are €5 adults and €3 for children.

Amazing piece of architecture!
Reviewed February 2011 by akamallorca
Unbelievable building sitting right on the water's edge and completely dominating the entrance to the city! You can enter the main cathedral for free but have to pay to go through the museum. Museum is worth it if you like old Baroque paintings, although it does have some rather unusual pieces. The inside is stunning. Try and go on a sunny day (which is most) so you can really appreciate the colours from the rose window. I think to get the most ...
