The Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca

One of the most impressive jewels of the Mallorcan capital is its cathedral, popularly known as La Seu. The Cathedral of Palma stands on the ancient walls next to the Palace of s'Almudaina. Its construction dates from the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, and is a magnificent representative of the Catalan Gothic style.

The most characteristic symbol of the cathedral is its rose window, with a diameter of 13 meters. In addition to its architectural beauty, the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca has a rich artistic heritage inside, with works by artists such as Gaudí and Miquel Barceló. Touring its naves and chapels is a journey back in time through the history and culture of the island.

Palacio Real de La Almudaina

Another of Mallorca's emblematic buildings is the Royal Palace of s'Almudaina. The base of the palace is a former Muslim fortress from the 13th century, which has witnessed the history and royalty of the island for centuries. It was the residence of the kings of the kingdom of Mallorca and later passed into the hands of the Crown of Aragon and the current monarchs.

The structure of the palace is characterized by its rectangular plan and its robust walls, which tell the story of past times and the influence of different cultures. Inside is the impressive Chapel of Santa Ana, a space full of spirituality and sacred art.

La Lonja de Palma: Un Tesoro Gótico en el Centro Histórico

La Lonja de Palma is another impressive example of Gothic architecture in Mallorca. Situated in the Plaza de la Lonja, in the heart of the historic center of the city, this former seat of the Merchants' College is a symbol of the power and prosperity that maritime trade brought to the island.

Built in the 15th century by architect Guillem Sagrera, the Lonja is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, with its impressive stone façade and high arches soaring skyward. The interior of this historic building is worth exploring, as it harbors an air of mystery and grandeur.

A walk through the Lonja de Palma transports us to an era of commercial and cultural splendor, and allows us to admire the beauty and architectural skill of the time.

Castillo de Bellver: Un Castillo Circular con Historia

On top of a hill 112 meters above sea level, stands the Castle of Bellver. Built by Jaume II of Mallorca as a defensive watchtower and royal residence, this castle stands out for its peculiar circular plan with three attached towers.

This uniqueness makes Bellver Castle one of the few European castles in the shape of a circle. Its defensive design offers a impressive panoramic view of the city, the sea and the surrounding mountains.

The interior of the castle houses the Museum of History of Palma de Mallorca, where visitors can explore the museum rooms and discover valuable archaeological treasures and historical artifacts.
