Ciutadella Cathedral - Tripkay

Ciutadella Cathedral

It was built in the 14th century on the largest mosque in the Muslim Medina Menurka by the King of Reino de Aragón, Alfonso III, after the conquest of Menorca in 1287. It is the most important Catalan Gothic-style building preserved on the island.

One of the things that most impresses upon entering the cathedral is its 22m height perched on a single nave covered by a vault and chapels on the sides. It emphasizes the Puerta de la Luz that preserves the original moldings, and the 14thcentury cathedral organ with 2371 pipes.

The old town of Ciutadella is truly wonderful and made this city one of the most beautiful of all the Balearic Islands. If you decide to take a walk around the Cathedral of Ciutadella, you will find many other important monuments and religious buildings such as Iglesia Roser, built in the 17thcentury on the Roser street, Claustro de Sam. Agustín of the 17thcentury, Convento de Santa Clara or Museo Diocesano. Another fantastic place to visit is the market of Ciutadella, a nice place to buy good fish or meat as well as to walk and soak up the colors and smells of the everyday life of the Menorcans.
