An oasis of tranquility

We visited an hour before closing so just missed the schoolchildren ( there is a school upstairs). It's worth visiting for the cloisters alone, a beautiful tranquil place.

Definitely worth a visit for the cloisters alone, this church houses the tomb of Ramon Llull, the Catalan mystic whose storey deserves to be better known. The chapels and artwork are worth looking at - a cool and shady place.

You have to look for this building but it's worth it. The cloisters are beautiful and there is a school in the building above so you hear the sound of young voices echoing in the cloister. The Basilica is seriously creepy.

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.

Thank Oldjack
