Palma Cathedral is also known as the Cathedral of Light. The reason is that, twice a year, through the entrance of the sun, the circle of colors of the larger rose window is reflected just below the smaller rose window, forming a huge eight of light on the wall of the temple. It is what is known in Mallorca as "el vuit de la Seu" (the eight of the Seo). This phenomenon occurs on February 2 and November 11 between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. and lasts only a few minutes as the circle rotates like clock hands until it disappears. It is easy to remember: 2/2 and 11/11. In addition, it coincides with the festival of Candelaria and San Martín, respectively. Quite a spectacle that very few have the privilege of contemplating and that never fails.
The busiest areas for lunch and dinner are the Paseo Mallorca, la Lonja, the Paseo Marítimo and the lively area of Santa Catalina, the place par excellence of the afternoon or, what is the same, start the drinks and the march in the afternoon, after eating.
