Palma Cathedral, or Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma, or as people call it “La Seu”, is a Gothic Roman Catholic cathedral in the island of Majorca, Spain. Sitting in one of the Balearic Island in the western Mediterranean Sea, the cathedral’s construction was started on the 1229, but not finished until 4 centuries after. Just like other typical gothic cathedrals in Europe, the size of La Seu is massive! With a length of 121 m and height of the nave 44 m, this cathedral made me feel supersmall being inside it. In the day time, you can visit the cathedral to see the greatness of the interior designs and the luxuriously creepy holy relics, including some saint’s bones inside decorated glass cases. At night, enjoy relaxing across the reflecting pool to see the perfect mirror image of this gorgeously illuminated cathedral on the water surface. It’s romantic.
