One of the most well-known and visited monuments on the island is the Cathedral, also known as La Seu. Every year there are thousands of people who will come to find out about its charm and history. But this year, 2019 has introduced a new option: the opportunity to visit the temple’s terraces.
In order to equip the monument with a new tourist attraction, since last May the highest outer areas of the religious building have been opened to the public, and it is expected that this will continue until October, every day except Sundays (as opposed to only Saturdays as it has been so far). Residents of the Balearic Islands will have free access, upon reservation, while non-residents will have to pay an entrance fee of €12. There are different times in which you are able to visit, the schedules of which depend on the day. It is worth mentioning that the minimum age to access is eleven years, though they will always have to be accompanied by at least one adult.
The visit takes place in groups of about 25 people and lasts approximately one hour. During the tour you can discover the hidden corners of La Seu, as well as the huge terraces and exclusive views that can be seen from them. An essential element which can be enjoyed from closer than ever, is the Rosetón Mayor, a rose window 100 square metres in size and with 1,115 crystals, making it the largest in the world, along with that of the Strasbourg Cathedral.
Access to the highest part of the monument is via a staircase of 215 steps. Once at the top, immerse yourself in the stories, legends and traditions that have taken place here over the years, with the aid of a guide. A compilation of stories will make you go back in time and get into the skin of the characters who walked the wide rooftops.
On this visit, you will be able to carefully observe all the architectural details and find out about all the secrets hidden in Mallorca’s La Seu, as well as enjoying the panoramic view of the city of Palma surrounded by the sea, all from the temple.
