Every November 11th, every year, on the feast of St Martins of Tours, you can visit the Cathedral of Palma free of charge, to admire the so called "Light Show 8".
This phenomenon happens twice a year in the interior of the building, if it´s sunny, when the reflection of the main rose window is projected right underneath the rose window of the main facade of the Cathedral, forming the figure of eight.
The Cathedral opens its doors at 08:00 to all who wish to see it, it usually takes place at around 08:30.
As per ordinary custom, at 09:00 the convent mass takes place in the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament.
It is an optical phenomenon that looks like magic, even though the secret lies in its precise architectural mathematical calculations. The Cathedral of Palma is orientated to the West with respect to the winter solstice sunrise, in such a way that the sunlight, hits the main rose window during sunrise, projecting the colors underneath the other rose window in front. The result is that the sun illuminates the glass stained window and displays a magnificent show of colors. During a few seconds, the 1,236 crystals of the main rose window project their light and color on the opposite facade offering a unique light show.
If you are on the island of Majorca, staying in one of our villas, you cannot miss this unique show.
