The most popular attraction in Palma de Mallorca is the Cathedral, named after Saint Mary. Although the locals usually call it La Seu. The cathedral stands on the seashore. Gossip says that at the beginning of the 13th century, King James I the Conqueror and his huge fleet sailed past this island and got into a severe storm. According to tradition, the king prayed for salvation and swore that he would build a temple here and dedicate it to the Virgin Mary. The beginning is very cheerful, but the construction of the temple lasted for more than 400 years, so in the end, the temple acquired Gothic features.
The height of the cathedral reaches 120 meters, and the width is 55 meters. The architect Antonio Gaudi took part in the design of the cathedral. Gaudí brought electricity to the temple, which was very rare at that time, and he also participated in interior design.
The cathedral is bordered on one side by the city wall, and on the other side the Parc de la Mar is spread out.
