The narrow lanes and aging qualities of the island’s capital city’s Old town, the monumental Palma Cathedral overlooks the city’s waterfront mountain. From the 13th century, this detailed, Golden Sandstone church took 500 years to complete and so offers a variety of architectural styles, but it remains the essence of Gothic. Large exterior supporting speakers take the weight off their interior pillars and add a thin scale to the building that is impressive at any angle but is just breathtaking looking at the Esplanade with the Bay.
The interior of the cathedral is as majestic as the deep, rising 44 meters towards the vaulting ceiling, backed by slender poles, and the entire space illuminates the kaleidoscopic light through the tall glass-like windows. Antoni Gaudi worked early 20th-century restoration resulting in distinctive interior features such as iron railings twisted in unusual shapes in front of a high altar and an exaggerated canopy suspended above it.
