Probably the number one place of interest in this vibrant city is The Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma, or simply Palma Cathedral built in 1630, more commonly referred to as La Seu. Its facade exhibits one of the largest rose windows ever built in Levantine Gothic style that gave the cathedral its popular name – the Gothic eye. In addition, this is the only Gothic cathedral built by the sea. Inside, as part of the decoration, there is a mural by Miquel Barceló and the famous avant-garde architect Antoni Gaudí was involved in its reconstruction, although he left the project after an argument with the contractor in 1914.
Just in front of the Cathedral stands palace of the Almudaina - an official building, constructed on the site of an arabesque fortress, which the Royal Family use as an official residence for ceremonies and State receptions.
Another remarkable item among local religious buildings is the Lluc monastery, an obligatory pilgrimage site for those wanted to worship the Virgin of Lluc – the patron saint of Majorca.
Bellver Castle dating back to 14th-century is also well worth a visit. It is one of only three European castles with a circular layout, offering an exceptional view over the Bay of Palma. Today the caves in the forest surrounding the castle are open for visitors once more. Another similar attraction is the Bendinat castle, built in the 19th century by the 3rd marquis of la Romana.
As for museums, it is highly recommended to visit the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation, the Joan March Foundation and the Es Baluard Contemporary Art Museum, which compete with the Palma Aquarium for tourists’ attention. Opened in 2007, it is the largest aquarium in Europe and a place where you can observe aquatic fauna from around the world.
Finally, it is worth having a closer look at the Porto Pí lighthouse - the third oldest lighthouse in the world still in operation, located in the bay at the end of the promenade in Palma known as the Paseo Marítimo.
