A jewel of the Gothic era facing the sea.
This building, which was begun under the reign of Jaime II, consists of a single plan with three naves. Trinidad (Trinity) chapel lies in the main nave, in which the bodies of James II and James III lie. The most notable elements of the façade are the Mayor doorway and the South doorway (Mirador), that is distinctive because of the sculptures by Guillermo Sagrera that lie around it. The beauty of the Mirador doorway is spectacular due to its decoration with geometric and vegetable motifs, while the Mayor doorway is set upon four majestic columns. The Cathedral of Palma de Majorca has a total of 9 bells in the tower. The bell called ''N''Eloi'' stands out because its size. It measures 2 metres in diameter and weighs 4,517 kilos.
