Palma Cathedral has welcomed hundreds of visitors during the last week who visited to see the restoration of the choir stalls and the gallery. The project was carried out by skilled restorers who began the work April. Further restoration is to be carried out on the lower chapel ‘La Seu Trinitat Baixa’ and parts of the cathedral’s roof.
Restorers were present at the cathedral over the weekend to explain to visitors how the restoration work on the valuable, old and very delicate Catalan and Mallorcan architecture was carried out.
The historic choir stalls which were built in the 14th century were first restored by Antoni Gaudi in 1899-1901 and were originally painted by Gaudi’s assistant Josep Maria Jujol. Other parts of the cathedral which have been restored include the Santissim Chapel which was restored by the Mallorcan artist Miquel Barcelo and the 12 angels coated in gold which form part of the altar.
A visit to this magnificent cathedral is a must on your family holidays to the beautiful island of Majorca.
