Catedral-Basílica de Santa María de Mallorca, Plaça de la Seu, Palma, Spain
Without doubt the cathedral is the city’s major architectural landmark and is unlike any other cathedral. It is predominantly Gothic and building work, started in 1300, was not completed until 1601.
But, following an earthquake in 1851, new features added meant that the cathedral became the unique hybrid of Renaissance and pseudo-Gothic features that sets it apart from any other cathedral in the world.
Spectacular stained glass and an interior featuring work by Antoni Gaudi and contemporary artist Miquel Barcelo make the cathedral a memorable experience for visitors.
It is also the setting for mass at 9am every day – with other masses held at different times on different days.
