Palma Cathedral (also known as La Seu or Catedral de Mallorca), was completed in 1601 and overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. In 1901, the Catalan architect Gaudí was invited to oversee its restoration but in the end, only some of his suggestions were implemented. Other design elements were later provided by Mallorcan artist Miquel Barceló, and the combination of a modern interior and gothic exterior make this an impressive sight for any visitor.

5 Tips for Visiting the Palma Cathedral

1
Visit on a Sunny DayEven though you might be itching to hit the beach on a hot day, a visit to the cathedral is a totally different experience when the sun is shining. The bright light will shine through the beautiful stained glass windows and let you see them at their best.

Look Out for the Spectacle of the EightTwice a year, once in February and once in November, the light shines into Palma Cathedral in a way that projects the beautiful roseate window onto the opposite wall, creating a figure 8 with its twin window. The cathedral opens at 8 am on the days this event occurs, with the light causing the alignment at 8.30 am, and it is free to enter and watch.
3
Come in Summer to See the TerracesBetween May and the end of October, the roof terrace of La Seu Cathedral is accessible on a guided tour. Not only will you have a chance to explore a different side of the impressive building, but you’ll also get a great view of Palma.
4
Consider the Spiritual Mallorca CardIf you’re interested in seeing several of Mallorca’s churches and monasteries, consider buying a Spiritual Mallorca pass. It’s valid for several days and includes entry to Palma Cathedral, the Monestir de la Real, Santa Eulàlia, and a museum dedicated to Saint Junípero Serra, and several other religious venues.
5
Dress appropriatelyWhile Palma Cathedral isn’t known for being especially strict on its dress code, it is still a place of worship. Bring a scarf or light jacket to cover bare shoulders when you visit.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s interesting about Palma Cathedral?

The Cathedral of St Mary of Palma, also known as La Seu (‘the seat’), is Palma’s stunning Roman Catholic cathedral which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. Building began back in 1229 on the former site of a mosque after King Jaume I took Mallorca from the Almohad dynasty of Moorish rulers. The building was only completed in 1601, 372 years later. It was originally built in the Catalan Gothic style and has one of the highest naves of any Gothic cathedral: it’s 144 feet (44m) tall, beating Notre-Dame de Paris (109 feet/33 m) and Reims (124 feet/38 m). The cathedral was badly damaged by an earthquake in 1851 and much of the repair work was done in the neo-Gothic style. In 1901 the famous Catalan modernist architect Antoni Gaudí was hired to continue restoring the cathedral’s interior. While some of his plans were implemented, including adding a magnificent chandelier and a canopy and moving the choir stalls closer to the altar, he left the project in 1914. While there are elements of his Art Nouveau style to be seen, the cathedral today features a mixture of styles from different ages.

Should I take a guided tour?

If you’re just planning to visit the interior of the cathedral, you don’t necessarily need to take a guided tour. There are boards at each chapel to explain which saint or religious figure they are dedicated to and provide context for any works of art inside. You can also rent an audio guide for €4. The only time you’ll need to join a guided tour is if you’d like to see the roof terrace in summer, but be aware that this tour is only available in Spanish or Catalan.

Can I attend mass or services at La Seu?

Of course! The entrance to religious services at Palma Cathedral is free of charge. Masses take place at 9 am and 7 pm on Saturdays, at 10.30 am, 12 noon, and 7 pm on Sundays, and at 9 am every weekday. There are extra services on holy days of obligation, for the full schedule please check the cathedral’s official website. Services are conducted in either Spanish or Catalan, and the cathedral choir performs at Sunday services.
