Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca
The Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca or La Seu, as it is known among the inhabitants of the island, is one of the most famous monuments in all of Mallorca. This incredible gothic temple stands on the wall of Palma de Mallorca. Originally the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca was built next to the sea, but nowadays it has been gaining ground in the Mediterranean and this construction has been moving away from the shore. However, to emulate the incredible spectacle of seeing it reflected in the water, a huge lake was built at its feet. The Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca was built around 1300, and many architects worked to bring this project to fruition. Already in modern times some famous artists, such as Antoni Gaudí and Miquel Barceló, have collaborated in carrying out some reforms. Any time of year is good to visit the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca, although we want to recommend what are the three best times to do so. The summer is an excellent time to visit the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca, since the city shines, and also, visits are made by all the ins and outs of this magnificent construction. The most attractive part of these guided tours is that they go up to the top of the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca, a unique place where you can enjoy incredible views. The other two best times to visit the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca are on February 2nd and November 11th. These days are key because the phenomenon known as ‘eight’ is formed in the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca. This phenomenon takes place when the light from one of the spectacular rose windows in the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca is projected exactly under the other one.
Although the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca is the city’s most eye-catching monument, Bellver Castle is another of the city’s icons. Bellver Castle is a Gothic style fortification located a few kilometers from the center of Palma de Mallorca. This imposing construction stands on a small hill, about 100 meters high. This location makes Bellver Castle surrounded by a fantastic forest, which is an ideal place to take a long walk among the trees. Thanks to the height at which Bellver Castle was built, it is also the perfect place to contemplate a panoramic view of the bay of Palma de Mallorca that will leave you speechless. The Bellver Castle dates from the beginning of 1300 and is one of the few castles with a circular floor plan in the whole of Europe. Moreover, the Bellver Castle is the largest of them all.
