Visiting the capital of Mallorca 马略卡首都之行
23.03.2009 19 °C
It was time for some sight seeing, and therefore we visited the capital of Mallorca, which is Palma de Mallorca.
This was the view when we left our underground parking place.
It is the cathedral of Mallorca, also called 'La Seu'.
It was built after defeating Islamic forces in 1230, which had conquered Mallorca before.
Next to the cathedral is the Imperial Palace of Mallorca, which you can see on the left side of this picture.
Some views of the palace's gardens.
We did not enter the palace, but went to the Cathedral instead.
Some details of the Cathedral's main entrance, which looks really very beautifully.
First we visited a museum within the cathedral.
The main part of the cathedral is very big and all windows are painted differently, each letting in different parts of the sunlight.
It is difficult to capture on photo, but does look very impressive if you are visiting 'La Seu'.
As it was already noon, we went to a restaurant nearby for having lunch.
We continued our sight seeing to the center of Palma, but unfortunately there were not very many other interesting buildings to see.
But at least Palma was decent for shopping, and we could buy some nice things there.
And in the evening we could have some of our favourite food, rabbit and paella.
Finally, when going back to our car we could get some more views of the Cathedral and the Palace.
They also look very nice during night time.
