The Cathedral’s terraces reopen to the public

04 May 2022

Now winter is over, there is a sign of spring’s arrival in Palma: the opening of access to the Cathedral’s terraces. Visitors can come and see the flying buttresses, the main rose window and the bell tower and enjoy a panoramic view of the whole of the city.

From Monday 2 May, the Cathedral will again allow the public onto its rooftops after the closure during the winter season. The ascent to the roof of the Cathedral is a unique opportunity to enjoy a bird’s eye view of Palma and, above all, to discover the basilica in all of its splendour. The tour makes it possible to access the terraces with the flying buttresses and also to see the bell tower up-close and view one of the symbols of the Cathedral: its main rose window, one of the largest rose windows in Europe’s Gothic cathedrals.

The visits are unguided and the opening hours are Monday to Friday 10:00 to 16:30 and Saturday 10:00 to 13:30. You can book tickets through the website or at the Cathedral’s ticket desks. Access will be every 30 minutes and the number of places is limited. The price, which includes entry to the Cathedral and to its terraces, will be €20 and €5 for residents. On Fridays, visits are free for residents. Residents who want to take advantage of this offer must collect their tickets at the ticket desks. Residents will have to prove their status with their identity card or a certificate of residency both at the entrance and if the purchase is made online.
