It has soaring delicate columns and a beautiful rose window. The Cathedral Museum is next to it, displaying Gothic art and gold work. Around it lies the historic Old Quarter of the city, worth visiting not only for its old buildings but also the lovely courtyards of many of the aristocratic mansions. Palma is a town of many courtyards. The churches of Santa Francesc, Sant Miquel and Santa Eulàlia are Gothic buildings of great beauty and ornate interiors. Contributions by artist Miquel Barceló consisting of a large ceramic mural, stained glass windows and fixtures can be visited in one of the chapels of Mallorca's Cathedral. This avant-garde proposal was promoted by the late Bishop Teodor Úbeda and supported by various institutions under the auspices of the Art a la Seu Foundation, which has not been free from a debate similar to the one surrounding Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí in the early twentieth century, just one more reason to visit this magnificent landmark, one of Europe's most brilliant Gothic buildings.

Platja d'es Trenc is located at 6,5 kilometres from Colònia de Sant Jordi. The name (“ravine” in English) comes from the opening of the saline area that divides the coastal barrier of dunes, whereas the oral tradition tells that in the middle of the 18th century a tsunami came after the earthquake of Lisbon, which divided the dune cord between the open sea and the wetland. This beach is the last big sandy areas which is still unspoilt and well preserved in Majorca. Together with es Salobrar de Campos it is a protected area of 1492 hectares. It is one of the virgin places that are most crowded during the summer weekends.
