Museu Diocesa de Mallorca
Museum in Palma
Nestled within a wing of the former episcopal palace, this petite museum houses an array of religious and historical artifacts. The episcopal palace, positioned just behind the cathedral, originally dates back to the 13th century. While its primary architectural style is Gothic, it has experienced various renovations over the centuries that have altered its original appearance.
Within the museum’s confines, you’ll encounter an intriguing assortment of items, including paintings, pulpits, and prayer books. Notable highlights include splendid Arab tapestries, a diverse collection of ceramics spanning five centuries, and a 17th-century painting depicting the infant Jesus bearing a cross. Be sure to keep an eye out for the portrait of St. George (Sant Jordi) set against the backdrop of medieval Palma, a captivating depiction that adds to the museum’s charm and historical significance.
