Majorca Cathedral


Description

It is a large building that rises up above the bay, built over the walls of the old quarter of the city. This cathedral is known as “La Seu”, the “Cathedral of the Sea” or the “Cathedral of Light”. The Trinidad chapel stands out amongst its chapels and is considered the oldest part of the cathedral. It is where the work started. The Trinidad chapel is a royal mausoleum where the remains of kings Jaime II and Jaime III are laid to rest. The nine bells in its tower are considered to be one of the most complete sets of medieval bells in Western Europe. The reforms carried out by the architect Antonio Gaudí and the painter Miquel Barceló are worthy of note. Gaudí placed the choir seating around the Main Altar and created a wrought iron chandelier to cover the altar. Miquel Barceló improved the Santísimo Chapel with his large ceramic mural, stained glass windows and furnishings.
