Interesting 13th C basilica with cloisters, perfect for shade on a sunny day. Only one other couple while we we there. Ok, so not as impressive as the cathedral but still worth tracking down in the streets of the old town. Pay 5€ to get in.

Sant Francesc is a church located in the Sant Francesc Square in Palma deMallorca and it is a typical Majorcan church. In fact, it is a beautiful church, and it has a very nice cloister inside. It is the best part of the church and here you can walk quietly and see all parts of the cloister. Very recommendable. Moreover,... More

Inside the church is the tomb of Ramon Llull (1235-1316), the Catalan mystic - and the one being presented at the museum exhibition at the Cathedral. Outside the basilica is a statue of another famous Mallorcan missionary, Fray Junípero Serra, who once lived in the monastery. The basilica has been used as warehouse, school, quarters for military before the Franciscan... More

We were staying just a few metres from the Basilica/cloisters but, each time we walked past, it seemed to be closed! Until finally late one afternoon we found it open. The church is interesting and impressive but really it is the cloisters that make a visit a must for any visitor to Palma. Beautifully preserved, peaceful and enchanting. A genuine... More

This is a beautiful old church originally erected in the 13th century and has interesting Gothic cloisters and a central area with lemon trees. It is the tomb of a Mystic called Ramon Llull who was stoned to death attempting to convert Muslims . If in Palma well worth a visit.

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
