Popular Attractions in Palma, Spain

  • La Seu Cathedral: Wonder at the gothic splendor of the city's cathedral when you visit La Seu Cathedral. One of the three largest cathedrals in Europe, La Seu Cathedral towers above the tranquil lake of Parc de la Mar and is visible from land and sea. The capital’s pride and joy, the magnificent sandstone edifice carries the weight of eight centuries of history. Inside the cathedral, you can admire a spectacular wrought iron baldaquin, created by Gaudí, which is beautifully reminiscent of a crown of thorns. Stunning stained-glass rosettes adorn the windows, forming a spectacle of multicolored lights.
  • Palma Aquarium: Take a trip under the sea and marvel at the exotic aquatic species on show at Palma Aquarium.

  • Almudaina Palace: Relax by the lakeside at the city's emblematic fortress of the Almudaina Palace. Sitting adjacent to the La Seu Cathedral, the original alcazar of the 10th century was all but demolished. However, this building is a gothic architectural masterpiece in its own right. Venture upstairs beyond the sumptuously dressed historic rooms at ground level to see the Pyrenean marble portal in St. Anne’s Chapel, a rare example of Romanesque style art in Mallorca.
