Palma Cathedral La Seu

La Seu Cathedral is the main event within the Historic Centre. Palma's distinctive landmark has the most amazing Gothic Architecture. The interior hall, specially designed by Gaudi, has beautiful stained glass windows. The famous largest round window, seen from afar, has just over 1200 pieces of stained glass. This is the focal point of the Cathedral and has to be seen to be appreciated. La Seu, which runs parallel to the seafront, is situated directly beside the Parc de la Mar lake. You can't miss the stunning structure of the Cathedral, whether arriving in Palma by car, boat or even by air if you happen to fly over the City. Check the Cathedral website for up to date information on opening times and pricing.

Palace of Almundaina

The Palace of Almundaina (Palace de L'Almundaina), the Residence of the Mallorca Royal Family, is situated directly beside the Cathedral.
