Best for History - Expert review of Catedral de Palma

Historically rich, and spectacularly located, Palma's cathedral is a stunner.

There are a handful of things that make Palma’s cathedral stand out from the crowd. 1) Flying buttresses that make it look like a castle (constructed originally to support the nave); 2) The nave: a vertigo-inducing 44 metres high, surrounded by gothic splendour; 3) The hand of Gaudì – not content with his full-time work on Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia, he supervised the restoration here between 1904 and 1914; 4) Miquel Barceló’s surreal mural of the ‘Feeding of the Five Thousand’; 5) the reflecting pool that surrounds it and makes it seem like it might float off out to sea.

Price advice: 

A diplomatic 4 euros for everyone.

Expert tips: 
Get in early to avoid the crowds.
