Visit the former parish church of Sant Jaume in Palma

Just west of the central square of Palma, Placa Major, you will find this amazing old Gothic church.

The church of Sant Jaume is, along with the churches of Santa Eulàlia, Santa Creu and Sant Miquel, one of the oldest churches in Palma.

The church is dedicated to Jaume I (James I the conqueror), who conquered Mallorca from the Moors in 1229.

Architecture of the Sant Jaume church

The church is built as a typical Catholic basilica, with a single nave and lateral side chapels.

In 1776, the sculptor Miquel Tomàs did some major renovation works of the main entrance. From this, you can see the beautiful ornamentation and the bust of Saint James.

There has never been done any reconstructions of the church, and it preserves its original shape and Gothic style, both inside and on the outside.

Inside, only the chapel of the tabernacle, is in Baroque style dating from the 17th century. In this chapel, you will also find the tomb of the Cotoner family, great masters of the order of Malta.
