After the crowds of the cathedral, the heat and noise of the streets, it's worth visiting this quiet, unspoiled little church. Considerably older than the Cathedral, it cannot compete with the former's soaring vaults and flying buttesses but it's silence speaks volumes. St Francis may...More

An oasis of calm in a sometimes-bustling city. Interesting part of the history of the city. Entrance 5 euros. Printed English language guide card available on free loan.

There are a remarkable number of magnificent old churches in Palma and this is a classic one. you could nearly walk past it without realising it. It's got a tall main entrance but is discreet, with a statue outside it. Inside, the Church is modest...More

This is a little off the beaten track, set back in a less touristy part of the old city, but is well worth the effort of finding it. It has a highly decorated interior, lots of interesting and beautifully ornate side chapels - one dedicated...More

This visit amply justifies the trip. The cloister is just beautiful and so relaxing. The basilica is very beautiful and very interesting. Important: near the boxes, borrow the sign in your language to make a detailed and enriched visit.

Located in a popular quarter. Look for the art treasures in the basilica, enjoy the quietness of the cloister before 5 pm. Then watch the cheerfulness of the children coming out of classes under the attentive parents waiting for them.

There would seem to be reasonable parking in the square in front of the building but if here is a wedding taking place, I would imagine these will be spoken for. Why not contact the wedding organisers/the church officials... More

I am sorry I cannot answer the question. My visit was for a wedding which started around six pm. I am sure your hotel concierge will be able to tell you or some of the people at the Church. Good luck
