No more parking outside Palma cathedral

PARKING in front of Palma de Mallorca cathedral will be banned from Monday, January 18, the city council has announced.

Visitors to Palma and tourists with hired cars hoping to visit the huge, splendid temple will now suffer the inconvenience of struggling to find somewhere to station their vehicles, and nearby residents will have to pay season tickets to use an adjoining public car park.

Local authorities will send out information flyers to residents in and near the C/ Mirador, where all 26 parking spaces are set to be axed, from this coming Monday, with details of costs and times for using the Antoni Maura car park instead.

They will be allowed to park there from 18.00hrs to 10.00hrs on weekdays, and 24 hours a day on weekends and bank holidays, at a cost of €300 a year or €90 a quarter, which can be paid either up front or monthly.

The council says parking will be banned on the C/ Mirador – which is named after the popular and frequently-visited viewing point at the cathedral – to 'protect and safeguard the building and its surroundings'.

No other historical heritage sites of this type in Spain, especially a Gothic cathedral of the first order, has parking spaces right in front of it,” says councillor for transport Juan Ferrer.
