Inside the church is the tomb of Ramon Llull (1235-1316), the Catalan mystic - and the one being presented at the museum exhibition at the Cathedral. Outside the basilica is a statue of another famous Mallorcan missionary, Fray Junípero Serra, who once lived in the monastery. The basilica has been used as warehouse, school, quarters for military before the Franciscan... More

We were staying just a few metres from the Basilica/cloisters but, each time we walked past, it seemed to be closed! Until finally late one afternoon we found it open. The church is interesting and impressive but really it is the cloisters that make a visit a must for any visitor to Palma. Beautifully preserved, peaceful and enchanting. A genuine... More

This is a beautiful old church originally erected in the 13th century and has interesting Gothic cloisters and a central area with lemon trees. It is the tomb of a Mystic called Ramon Llull who was stoned to death attempting to convert Muslims . If in Palma well worth a visit.

This monastry has a splendid square courtyard and a huge splendid church. It is an active school. Lots of traffic on weekdays at begin and end of classic class hours.

Not far from the Cathedral and worth the walk. It has wonderful cloisters and a truly amazing church. There are historic displays and information and being off the beaten track means it's also a serene place, in keeping with its purpose. Recommended.

There were almost no other visitors in this important church. It contains the tomb of the most important Mallorcan philosopher, mathematician and theologian Ramon Llull. He belonged to the Franciscan order. The church has also an interesting chapel dedicated to the martyrs of Gorinchem, The Netherlands. Opposite to the chapel is a large painting with a view of the harbor... More

This basilica is stunning. The courtyard is so peaceful. There are benches in the courtyard where you can sit and read the information sheets provided, which explain the various areas of the basilica. The architecture inside the basilica is beautiful and there are many separate areas where you can sit and reflect. We thought that the interior of the basilica... More

Our first stop of the Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas trip. One of my favorite place. Not far from the port and love the walk around the areas. Lovely shops and cafes. Beautiful cathedral and really enjoyed the places.
