Palma Cathedral Spectacular

There's a spectacular show of natural light coming up in Palma's giant Cathedral

There's a spectacular show of natural light coming up in Palma's giant Cathedral on the 11th November. Twice a year the alignment of the earth with the sun is such that as it rises, the sun beams
in through one of the enormous stained glass, rose shaped windows and floods the cathedral with multi-coloured light.

 

The builders of the Cathedral made meticulous plans to ensure that the earth and sun were in alignment with the rose window on two particular days – 2/2 and 11/11
– the saints' days of 'la Candelaria' and San Martin de Tours the sum of whose dates is four.

If you'd like be there for this wonderful occasion you'll need to be in the Cathedral before 08.30 as the sun rises.
