Palma's Religious Architecture

palma-cathedral

Civil Architecture

consulado-del-mar

Category: Palma

Palma is a city rich in religious architecture. Churches like Santa Creu, Sant Francesc and Santa Eulàlia are examples of a cultural legacy well worth discovering.

Scroll down to see all, or use these shortcuts to go straight to the one you fancy.

CLAUSTRE DE SANT FRANCESC

Plaça de Sant Francesc
Basilica with a single nave and lateral chapels. It was started during the reign of Jaume II, in around 1281. The original Gothic church underwent changes later, such as the substitution of the beams for a domed roof, or the replacement of the façade for one with a doorway by Francisco Herrera. The cloister which adjoins the church and the convent is trapezoidal in shape with pointed trefoil arches. The progression of styles can be seen from the north gallery, the first to be built, to the one facing south, which was not finished until the 15th century.

ESGLÉSIA DE SANTA EULÀLIA

Plaça de Santa Eulàlia, 2
Gothic, 12th-16th centuries. Neogothic reformation of the façade, 1894-1924. This is one of the first churches built after the Catalan conquest. Other than the Cathedral, it is the only gothic church in Mallorca with three naves. These are separated by two rows of columns and have a groined vault ceiling. The presbyter is polygonal shaped with chapels and an unusual apse aisle. The main altarpiece is baroque. The side chapels feature gothic paintings such as the Sleeping Virgin, the Catlar altarpiece, as well as the figures of the Sanskrit of the Miracle and the Madonna, this last one by Adrià Ferran. The entrance on the main façade – presided by a figure of Santa Eulàlia – and the pointy, neogothic church tower, were both designed by Joan M. Sureda i Verí.

Tel. (+34) 971 714625
Open from: 17.30- 20.30
Saturdays and Sundays: open during mass

SANT FELIP NERI

Carrer de Sant Felip Neri, 1
The Gothic church from the XI century was substituted by a baroque temple, started in 1618 and renovated in 1859. The church is based on a single nave, with four side chapels and an apse with trapezoidal form. The chapels have a Gothic ribbed vault roof. The nave has a half-barrel roof design and that of the apse features a truncated cone section with pictorial decoration. The altarpiece is presided over by an image of the Virgin Mary and another of Sant Felip Neri. Worthy also of mention is the singular chapel of the Virgin de los Dolores, which features a different construction to the rest of the temple. It is based on an octagonal floor plan, with side chapels and retrochoir. It was constructed in the XVI century.

ESGLÉSIA PARROQUIAL DE SANTA CREU

Carrer de Santa Creu
Santa Creu is one of the five medieval parishes in the city. The start of the works is documented as 1335. The church is based on a single rectangular nave. This is flanked by two side chapels that enclose the presbytery and describe a semicircle. An important piece is the Virgin Mary with baby Jesus, from the XV century, which is situated in a small niche on the left wall of the chapel of Saint Joseph. We shouldn’t forget the chapel of Santo Cristo of Santa Creu, the object of considerable public devotion.

LA CATEDRAL

Palma Cathedral

Carrer del Palau Reial, 29.
A Gothic temple (XIV – XVI c.), although the main gate is from the late renaissance, finished in 1601, the main façade is Neo- Gothic dating back to 1855. The south-facing gate is clearly Gothic, from the XIV century, while the north-facing gate, of l’Almoina, is from the XV century. La Seu (cathedral) has 6,600m2 of surface area and, according to the initial plans, 87 windows and 7 rose windows. Floor with three naves, with a Gothic ribbed vault ceiling, suspended by slender columns.

On the central apse one finds the chapel of The Trinity, where the sepulchres of the kings of Mallorca Jaume II and Jaume II are situated. The renovation works by Antoni Gaudí, in 1904, eliminated the central choir and recuperated the Gothic cathedral. Currently, the chapel of Sant Pere is being renovated under the supervision of Miquel Barceló.

CONVENT DE SANTA CLARA

Carrer Fonollar, 2
Built in the 13th century, the Santa Clara Church was first altered in the 15th century. The building as it stands today is the result of alterations in the 17th century. However, as these were basically confined to architectural decoration, it is still possible to see the medieval origins of the church from its structure. Apart from the portal - Baroque style - and the top part of the belltower, the design of the main facade is Mallorcan Gothic. The Baroque elements of Mallorcan convents predominate in its interior.

Continuing the tradition of the Catalan Gothic it comprises one large area divided by columns into three sections. The six central columns have a circular base and a spiralled shaft.

There are so many places to visit in Palma it is difficult to know where to begin. The choice of what to include and what to leave out of this section has been a personal one, although most of the places included can not fail but to impress.

palma-promenadeOne of the best ways to start a visit to Palma, Mallorca is to take a stroll along its wonderful Promenade. Many of the sites listed here are visible from the promenade, which begins at Palma's port in the west of the city. Your stroll will take you past two of Mallorcas exclusive yacht clubs, which include some of the most beautiful and expensive yachts in the world. once you have finished admiring the yachts you will enter the fishing port, which is still very active.

On the opposite side of the road at this point you will find the Consulado del Mar and La Lonja. As you will probably need some refreshment by this point, I would recommend the square to the side of La Lonja as good place to stop, the refreshments and atmosphere are very pleasant. Continuing along the promenade you will reach The Almudaina Palace with The Cathedral situated to its right. Both of these fabulous structures are located on top of the old city walls and with a lake set in front of them, a awe-inspiring view.

The promenade continues past the Casco Antiguo, with the beautiful Parc del Mar in front, and into an area called Portixol, a small but very pretty area on the outskirts of Palma (Another fabulous place to have a coffee).
