Get to Know the Palma Cathedral

The Palma Cathedral, majestically seated in the Bay of Palma and affectionately known as “La Seu“, represents a splendid example of Gothic art at its finest. Its imposing rose window, one of the largest in the Gothic world, along with its detailed architectural elements, make this building a must-visit for those visiting the island. The beauty of the cathedral is not limited to its impressive facade; the interior is a true treasure of art and spirituality. Throughout its history, La Seu has been the scene of various artistic interventions that have enriched its legacy.

Among the most notable contributions of recent times, the works carried out by two emblematic figures stand out: Antoni Gaudí and Miquel Barceló. Gaudí, the celebrated Catalan architect, imprinted his modernist vision on the cathedral at the beginning of the 20th century, adding elements that harmonize with the original Gothic style without overshadowing it. On the other hand, Miquel Barceló, a contemporary artist from Felanitx, Mallorca, has left his mark inside with a renovation that reflects both his unique style and the cultural identity of the island. His intervention in the Chapel of the Holy Sacrament offers a modern perspective that dialogues with the historical tradition of the temple.
