The brightest stars of Los Baleares are Majorca, Ibiza and peaceful Minorca. Situated between France and Africa, the archipelago's islands each have distinct characters. Majorca is the most developed and offers a mass of hotels, fast food joints and crowded beaches. Ibiza is loved by a hard partying set, including many gay visitors. It is also increasingly popular with upscale travelers, drawn by the chameleon island's reputation as "the new Provence." Pick an island and stake a claim on its sand.

Neo-Gothic Church of Calvia, built at the end of the 19th century. One of the emblematic places of Calvia village; Important for the architectural level and for the movable and altarpiece heritage exposed inside.

The San Francisco de Palma church is a good example of Gothic architecture. It was built between the 13th and 14th centuries and holds the tomb of Ramón Llull. On the other hand, the façade was rebuilt in Baroque style throughout the 17th century. The most important element is the Gothic cloister, which is unique in the Kingdom of Aragon.
The Cathedral was closed on the day of our visit, so we followed the guidebooks instructions to this wonderful gothic church. Apart from a few Spanish worshippers, we were the only visitors. The cloisters are beautiful and the elaborate decorations in the main church are a sight to wonder at. What made our visit completely magical was the organ music wafting around played by an ancient organist who we could just catch glimpses of up in the organ loft. Was he rehearsing, practicing or entertaining the visitors we could not discover.

An oasis in Platja de Palma. A place where culture and nature meet, conveying the Franciscan spirituality. A monumental church
Park in a large lot across the street and walk up the road which is a pretty steep grade to the entrance of the museum. (I wouldn’t want to push a wheelchair) Five euros to get in and you will be handed a plasticized paper describing highlights of the museum and the sanctuary. The museum focused on archeological finds, agrarian life, and development of the tourist industry. The sanctuary can be enjoyed but not understood- the lecture was only in Spanish. Outside we walked a littl in their forestal park which has an extensive zip line. You can spend as much or as little time as you care to.

This cathedral is small but beautiful and well worth a visit. You can light a candle of remembrance here for a small fee of 1 euro and explore the beautiful collection of artifacts in the museum. We spent some time here in quiet reflection which was a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of Dalt Vila. A truly wonderful place.
