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.

Soller Railway Station
The route will begin at the Railway Station, located at Plaça Espanya, 6. The building housing Sóller train station was the old 17th century fortified house of Can Mayol. Above the entrance arch of the façade, a console displays the date of 1606. It was later converted into a hotel and eventually, at the beginning of the 20th century, into a railway station. The result of the restructuring from 1911-1912 is the art nouveau style preserved in the building, consisting of a series of delicate decorative details on doors, windows, ironwork, platform corbels and the tank in the courtyard, among other places. On leaving the station, to the left, beside the Major water course, you will see before you three examples of the typical railings that border the gardens of many houses in Sóller. Can Penya, Can Isabel and Cas Fideuer display the skilled ironwork of the artisans of the first third of the 20th century. Flowers, rosettes and leaves intertwine in elegant and simple designs. Pines, araucarias (or monkey-puzzle trees) and palms grow in these gardens.
