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.

We arrived via Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas. We found that the town was very clean with nice older buildings. The street vendors were more entertaining than bothersome like they can be in other tourist areas. We purchased tickets to tour the basilica and found it to be a nice informative tour with beautiful photo opportunities.

Entrance to this building is a very modest 5 euros. In fact the ticket also gives admittance to another 5 linked attractions although I'm not aware of the duration for which the ticket is valid. The cloister really is a joy to behold, it is such a relaxing place to be and very well maintained. The Basilica also proved to... More
