92 reviews of Palma Cathedral

Carlos Olmo

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.

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.
