Photographer's Note

The Cathedral was build on the site of an existing Arab mosque. The legend has it that one night in 1229, as Jaime I was on his way to recapture Majorca, his fleet was struck by a terrible storm. He vowed to the Virgin Mary that if he survived the storm, he would erect a church in her honor. And after the storm had blown over, finding himself safe and sound, he immediately undertook the project. It was a vow that was to take a long time to fulfill. begun in 1230, the cathedral was finished in 1601./wikipedia/

This picture was made at late afternoon on my holiday last year in September
I was happy to find this view because I could hide a bit the construction work with the left palma tree. In addition to this advantage - due to the low light situation - there is a natural frame around the building.
