The Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca, also known as La Seu or Cathedral of Mallorca, is one of the historical highlights of any trip to Mallorca. If you are looking for more than beach and sunshine on the Spanish vacation island, you will find a rich history from the Gothic and many other eras in this cathedral next to the Mediterranean Sea. For a stress-free visit, you should book tickets in advance, ideally without queuing.

7 tips for visiting the Palma Cathedral

1
Visit while the sun shinesSure, the beach tempts on sunny days. However, it is worth visiting the church when the sun is shining. The light illuminates the painted glass windows and fully accentuates the colors.

2
Annual spectacle at the Festival of LightOfficially now called the Festival of Light, twice a year in good weather, in February and November, you can observe the projection of the rosette of the round stained glass window of the front, which joins with its opposite window to form a figure eight. On these days, the church opens at 8:00 am and at 8:30 am the sun is set accordingly. Admission is free.
3
Take a guided tourThe Cathedral also offers guided tours. English-speaking tours take place every Saturday at 11:00 am, Spanish tours at 12:30 pm.
4
Visit one of the massMasses are held on Saturdays - no entrance fee - at 9:00 am and 7:00 pm, on Sundays at 09:55 am, 10:30 am, 12:00 pm and 7:00 pm, and Monday through Friday at 9:00 am. Services are held in Spanish or Catalan, and the Cathedral choir sings on Sundays.

6
Save with a combo ticketIf you’re interested in seeing several of Mallorca’s churches and monasteries, consider buying a Spiritual Mallorca Card. 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.
7
Dress appropriatelyWhen attending church, shoulders should be covered, and pants and skirts should not be too short. If in doubt, bring a scarf or jacket just in case.

A brief history of the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca

Mallorca is more than beach vacations. Historic buildings tell the story of the iconic island, and the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca is one of the most popular tourist destinations. Especially the combination of the Gothic interiors in modernist style and the Gothic exterior impresses guests to this day.

The origins of the Cathedral

In 1229, the church was built on the ruins of a mosque at the behest of Jaume I, who had conquered the island of Mallorca from the Moorish Almohads. But it was not until 1604, 372 years later, that construction was completed.The nave of the cathedral is one of the highest of any Gothic cathedrals in the world, standing at 44 m (144 ft), which is taller than that of Notre Dame at 108 ft (33 m) and Rheims at 38 m (124 ft).

Restoration and mix of styles

An earthquake in 1851 severely damaged Palma Cathedral. Repair work was carried out in the neo-Gothic style. In 1901, modernist architect Antoni Gaudí was commissioned to restore the interior and succeeded in adding the chandelier and canopy, as well as moving the choir closer to its altar. However, he left the project in 1914. As a result, the Catalan-Gothic cathedral reflects a mix of styles from different eras.
