Basilica de Sant Francesc Tours

Basilica de Sant Francesc
A Gothic-style church at the heart of Palma’s Old Town, the Basilica de Sant Francesc is one of the island’s most spectacular sights and historically significant structures. The basilica dates back to the 13th century when it was founded as a monastery. It has been known as one of the most famous churches on Palma since the Middle Ages.

The current sandstone facade was reconstructed in the 17th century after the original was struck by lightning. Its Baroque style is more typical of the Majorcan style. The inside of the basilica is just as impressive as its exterior, with high vaulted ceilings in classic Catalan Gothic style and ornate altar. Tombs and chapels line its walls, leading to its stunning medieval cloister filled with citrus and palm trees.

The statue outside the church is of Franciscan monk Junipero Serra. If his name sounds familiar, it might be because he went on to found the major cities in California - Los Angeles and San Francisco, among others. The church is considered a major landmark of Palma and is included in most all tours of the city.

Practical Info

The basilica is located in the Plaza de Sant Francesc, a short walk from the nearby Plaza de Santa Eutalia. It’s open daily from 10am to 6pm, with shorter hours during Sunday services.

star-5
This is a 1 hour tour very easily doable thanks to our amazing e-bikes with 3 speeds. Totally effortless unless you decide to be using the gear 0. The guide will take you out of the most turisting places, to show you historical building and places, and also to give you historical and cultural explaination. Of course, its a good occasion to get some tips about good places to eat and drinks as local guides live in Palma. The tour is "a la carta" even if we have a special route, we always consider guests as deciding what they want to see in particular. This is not particularly a sportive tour but better a promenade inside Palma's Old town. If you wish to ride more, please have a look on our others products such as 2/3 hours E-bikes tours.
