A nice house in Palma

A few days ago I ascended the wide stairs from the s’Hort del Rei garden and turned a corner. Suddenly I stood in front of La Seu, the imposing cathedral of Palma. The morning sun beamed through the large 14th century rose window, one of the world’s largest Gothic church windows, and covered the tall stone pillars in a beautiful rainbow light. Soon after we entered, a Catholic mass commenced and the giant hall was filled with song and organ music.

Then I heard a sullen voice from an American tourist, “that’s a nice house”.

Palma cathedral “A nice house”.
