The cathedral of the sea

Everything in the Cathedral of Palma is immense. They say that the gothic rose window is the biggest in the world and it wouldn’t surprise me if it were true, as it’s almost impossible to get the whole façade in a picture, even with a wide angle lens. It has a special location, on top of the walls of ancient Palma, right in the historic quarters of the city.

If we go at about 12 in the afternoon we can see how the sun passes through the rose window and how the light decomposes into hundreds of colors that beautifully light up the cathedral. It was declared a historic monument in 1931. Construction on the cathedral began in 1229, but it wasn’t finished until 1601.

In addition to its historic and religious relevance, since 2007 Saint Peter’s chapel was decorated by the artists Miquel Barceló. It’s a work of art that has as many detractors as supporters, but it’s worth seeing and making up your mind. Barceló tried to capture the miracle of the bread and the fish in clay, with cracks like it were in a cave, not a chapel.

Historic/artistic monument

It’s well worth the trip to visit the cathedral, as it was awarded the status of historic/artistic monument in 1931. You’ll be surprised by the interior upon entering, as it’s full of detail. If we look up we’ll be delighted with what we see – incredible stained glass windows on both sides. There are several big rose windows giving off a full variety of happy colors. The main rose window is known for its large size and the silhouette the shines through, the star of David made of 24 triangles. The height of the columns is also surprising, strangely narrow and stylized. Their responsible for distributing space throughout the cathedral, creating separating the chapels between them.

Talking about the chapels, I’d like to highlight two in particular. First and foremost, the Royal Chapel or the Trinity Chapel, where the remains of kings Jaime II and Jaime III lie. We can see the main altar and the images of several saints, like Saint John Evangelist or Saint Eulalia. It’s important to mention that this chapel has a canopy that was the work of the famous Antoni Gaudí, where you can see Saint Mary and Saint John along with Jesus being crucified. But Gaudí didn’t just leave his modernist touches here, he also was in charge of renovating other areas of the cathedral during ten years, from 1904 to 1914. The canopy dates back to 1912.

The second chapel I’d like to highlight also has to do with reformations being made, although this one is much more modern. The Chapel of Saint Peter, inaugurated in 2007, was created by Miquel Barceló. The artist tried to depict the miracle of the bread and fish through a ceramic mural.

Palma cathedral is the main religious...

Palma Cathedral is the main religious building on the island of Mallorca. In the dialect of Catalan spoken locally, the Spaniard, is known as La Seu. It consists of a Levantine Gothic church built on the shore of the Bay of Palma. [1] overlooking the sea on the Arab walls that protected the city, the only Gothic cathedral meets this peculiarity. It also consists of the headquarters of the diocese of Mallorca, the owner is the Assumption of Mary. In 1931 it was declared a Historic Artistic Monument. Its construction began in 1229, after the conquest of the island by the Crown of Aragon. King James I, called the Conqueror, decided to demolish the former Great Mosque of Medina Mayurca to build a great temple dedicated to Santa Maria, since the outbreak of a storm during the voyage by sea to the island to consquistarla, promised to build a cathedral in worship, if it saved them from death. In 1346, he was consecrated by King James III, although work continued and finished several years later, which was not completed until 1601, and, in fact, continued (and continues) reforming and restoring every so often. Cathedral is the largest Gothic rose window of the world (the original Gothic, there are cathedrals with larger rosettes but belong to the Gothic) and one of the highest of the ship between the European Gothic.

La Catedral de Palma es el principal edificio religioso de la isla de Mallorca. En la variedad dialectal del idioma catalán hablado localmente, el mallorquín, se la conoce como La Seu. Consiste en un templo de estilo gótico levantino construido a la orilla de la bahía de Palma.[1] Se asoma al mar sobre las murallas árabes que protegían a la ciudad, siendo la única catedral gótica que cumple con esta peculiaridad. Consiste también en la sede de la diócesis de Mallorca, su titular es la asunción de María. En 1931 fue declarada Monumento Histórico-artístico.

Su construcción se inició en 1229, después de la conquista de la isla por la Corona de Aragón. El rey Jaime I, llamado el Conquistador, decidió derribar la antigua gran mezquita de Medina Mayurca para construir un gran templo dedicado a Santa María, debido a que al estallar un temporal durante la travesía por mar hacia la isla para consquistarla, prometió construirle una catedral en veneración, si ésta les salvaba de la muerte.

En 1346, fue consagrada por el rey Jaime III, aunque los trabajos y acabados continuaron bastantes años después, ya que no se terminó hasta 1601, y, en rigor, se siguió (y se sigue) reformando y restaurando cada poco tiempo.

Se trata de la catedral con el mayor rosetón del mundo gótico (del gótico original, existen catedrales con rosetones de mayores dimensiones pero pertenecen al neogótico) y una de las de mayor altura de la nave entre las de estilo gótico europeas.

Essential visit

King James I decided to demolish the old mosque here was to build this huge Gothic church in honor of St. Mary, and all for having survived a storm in their journey to the island. Here it is called La Seo, and is built on Roman and Renaissance walls that separate the Mediterranean. They say it is one of the tallest in the world, and that its rose window is the largest in the world. Consecrated at last by Jaime III, work on this massive temple are relentless, brilliant Gaudí's intervention in the canopy of the high altar, and much discussed Barceló Chapel (I liked). A compulsory visit if aterrizais or desembarcais on this beautiful island.

Visita imprescindible

El rey Jaime I decidió derribar la antigua mezquita que aquí existía para construir este inmenso templo gótico en honor a Santa María, y todo por haber sobrevivido a un temporal en su travesía hacia la isla.

Aquí se la llama La Seo, y se erige sobre las murallas romanas y renacentistas que la separan del Mediterráneo. Dicen que es una de las de mayor altura que existen, y que su rosetón gótico es el mayor del mundo.
Consagrada al fin por Jaime III, los trabajos en este imponente templo son incesantes, genial la intervención de Gaudí en el baldaquino del altar mayor, y muy discutida la capilla de Barceló (a mi me gustó).
Una visita ineludible si aterrizais o desembarcais en esta preciosa isla.

Precious

Arriving at Mallorca boat first thing that catches your attention is its cathedral, the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma de Mallorca. It is of Gothic style (do not know much to realize) and is considered by the Vatican as a minor basilica. By far it is very impressive, but not until you re underneath when you realize how huge it is. I will highlight the main entrance, with rosetn, one of the most impressive in the world according say.

Preciosa

Al llegar a Mallorca en barco lo primero que te llama la atención es su catedral, la Catedral de Santa María de Palma de Mallorca.

Es de estilo gótico (no hay que saber mucho para darse cuenta) y está considerada por el Vaticano como basílica menor.
De lejos es muy impresionante, pero no es hasta que estás debajo cuando te das cuenta de lo inmensa que es.
Yo destacaría la entrada principal, con el rosetón, uno de los más impresionantes del mundo según dicen.

Postal

The typical postcard of Palma, is a photo of the cathedral, if you visit between May and September, sure you will see plenty of newlyweds who are taking pictures with La Seu background. So you just have to go away to rest awhile above the grass is on the other side of the lake and wait for the coming and going of boyfriends and photographers.

La típica postal de Palma, es una foto de la catedral, si la visitáis entre mayo y setiembre, seguro que veréis un sinfín de parejas de recién casados que se están haciendo fotos con La Seu de fondo.

Tan solo tenéis que iros a descansar un rato encima del césped que hay al otro lado del lago y esperar el ir y venir de novios y fotógrafos.

A cathedral wedding

Last Saturday I was at a wedding at the Cathedral of Mallorca, landmark building that locals affectionately called the Cathedral of Mallorca. I've seen the inside of the Cathedral many times but until now thought Christmas was the time of year that looked more beautiful, with lovely decoration and intimate atmosphere. But my experience on Saturday allowed me to enjoy a different perspective of the Cathedral, this time hosting a link marriage. It is a unique place in the world, to get married, enjoy the singing of the Sibil.la (Cultural Heritage by UNESCO) or simply enraptured with its spectacular rose window. I like!

Una catedral de boda

El sábado pasado estuve en una boda en la Catedral de Mallorca, edificio emblemático que los lugareños denominan con cariño la Seu de Mallorca.

He visto el interior de la Catedral en muchas ocasiones pero hasta ahora pensaba que era en Navidad el momento del año que lucía más bella, con su decoración muy cuidada y ambiente entrañable. Pero mi experiencia del sábado me permitió disfrutar de una perspectiva diferente de la Catedral, acogiendo en esta ocasión un enlace matrimonial.

Es un lugar único en el mundo, para casarse, disfrutar del canto de la Sibil.la (declarado Patrimonio Cultural por la Unesco) o, simplemente, extasiarse ante su espectacular rosetón.

¡Me gusta!

Set on a cliff overlooking the sea, the cathedral dominates the city of Palma with its beautiful ocher color due to the golden stone of Santanyi. Built in the 14th century on the site of a former mosque, is of Catalan Gothic and several architects worked there. It has powerful buttresses which support it, and the Mirador portal is filled with numerous sculptures. It also has the largest Spanish rose.

Installée sur une falaise face à la mer, la cathédrale domine la ville de Palma avec sa belle couleur ocre dûe à la pierre dorée de Santanyi. Edifiée au 14ème siècle sur le site d'une ancienne mosquée, elle est de style gothique catalan et plusieurs architectes y travaillèrent. Elle possède de puissants arc-boutants qui la soutiennent, et son portail du Mirador est garni de nombreuses sculptures. Elle a aussi la rosace la plus grande d'Espagne.

Probably the best known landmark of the island. A view from much of the coast, especially from the promenade. The Gothic cathedral overlooks the Arabian sea on the walls that protected the city, the only Gothic cathedral meets this peculiarity.

Seguramente el monumento más conocido de la isla. A la vista desde gran parte de la costa, sobre todo desde el paseo del mar. La catedral gótica se asoma al mar sobre las murallas árabes que protegían la ciudad, siendo la única catedral gótica que cumple con esta peculiaridad.

Refreshing night.

Palma de Mallorca is an interesting city, especially in summer, when the heat of the day Crushes all attempts to perform any activity. Although everything is find the place and the right time ... one of my favorite spots in this city are close to the Cathedral, the grounds of the cathedral, the Drassana ... in summer, the soil and the sun emit much heat that is further complicated by the influx of visitors and tourists, however, by nightfall, with the cool, heat and crowds disappear, leaving the floodlights that illuminate the cathedral breathing space and, why not? Taking pictures.

Refrescando las noches.

Palma de Mallorca es una ciudad interesante, sobre todo en verano, cuando el calor del día aplasta todos los intentos de realizar cualquier actividad.
Aunque todo es buscar el sitio y el momento ideal... uno de mis rincones favoritos de esta ciudad son los alrededores de la Seu, los jardines de la catedral, la drassana... en verano, el suelo y el sol desprenden tanto calor que se complica aún más con la afluencia de visitantes y turistas, en cambio, al caer la noche, con el fresco, el calor y el bullicio desaparecen, dejando a la luz de los focos que iluminan la catedral un espacio para respirar y, por que no? Sacar fotos.

At the heart of the beautiful city of Palma is a cathedral that impresses with its exceptional beauty. It is the cathedral of Palma de Mallorca. I would note that this is the second largest religious building in Spain after the Cathedral of Seville. This stunning cathedral was built in the fourteenth century in the Gothic style. The interior of the cathedral is as splendid as its exterior, it impresses with its sumptuous decor, with its stained glass windows. This cathedral is the symbol of the city of Palma and attracts many tourists throughout the year.

Au coeur de la magnifique ville de Palma se trouve une cathédrale qui impressionne par sa beauté exceptionnelle. C'est la cathédrale de Palma de Majorque. Je voudrais noter que c'est le deuxième plus grand édifice religieux d'Espagne après la cathédrale de Séville. Cette cathédrale époustouflante a été construite au quatorzième siècle dans le style gothique. L'intérieur de la cathédrale est aussi splendide que son extérieur, il impressionne par ses décors somptueux, par ses vitraux. Cette cathédrale est le symbole de la ville de Palma et attire beaucoup de touristes toute l'année.

Walking around the cathedral and surrounding area

A starry night, walk along this great wealth, could become one of the most romantic and beautiful nights that can happen ... beautiful setting, beautiful cathedral reflected in the lake and its surroundings. In addition to facing the cathedral in the summer nights tend to put a medieval-style market with homemade products, objects, clothes and delicacies to taste, a great plan for a great night: D

Paseando por la catedral y alrededores

Una noche llena de estrellas, pasear junto a esta gran riqueza, podria llegar a ser una de las noches mas románticas y bellas que puedan pasar... precioso marco, preciosa catedral reflejada en el lago y sus alrededores. Además que frente a la catedral en las noches de verano suelen poner un mercadillo de estilo medieval con productos caseros, de objetos, ropa y delicias para degustar, un plan genial para una noche genial :D

After 3 years, a vacation ......

I visited with friends Palma residents. Palma is not only sun, beach, party (also!) Is having a spectacular historic visit is mandatory roaming the narrow streets, hills, stairs, avenues and can not forget the old peek through private courtyards. The food is different from other especially in pastry. Coastal areas are common, but some locations where the structure are unique and picturesque, as Valldemossa and Soller. With residents to discover it is a unique experience.

Después de 3 años, unas vacaciones......

He visitado Palma con unos amigos residentes. Palma no sólo es Sol, Playa, Fiesta ( ¡¡ que también !! ) es tiene un casco histórico espectacular que es obligatorio visitarlo recorriendo las estrechas calles, las cuestas, escalinatas, ramblas y no se puede olvidar asomarse por los antiguos patios particulares. La gastronomía se diferencia del resto especialmente en la repostería. Las zonas costeras son comunes, menos algunas localidades que por su estructura son muy particulares y pintorescas, como Valldemosa o Sóller. Poder descubrirla con residentes es una experiencia inigualable.
