Gaudi in the Cathedral of Mallorca: In the winter of 1902 Antoni Gaudi arrived at the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca to carry out a liturgical restoration plan. This work talks about the outcome of this artistic intervention, which combined the elegance of Gothic style with the boldness of Modernism.
About Majorca Cathedral: The construction of Majorca Cathedral, often called La Seu, began in the 13th century. It is a Levantine Gothic-style cathedral (characterised
by using a German-style hall layout) and it has one of the largest rose windows in the world, known as “the Gothic eye”. Its nave is also one of the highest in any European Gothic cathedral.
