Church of Saint Francis

Built in the 14C and 15C, the basilica is a blend of the Gothic and Renaissance styles. Its façade, rebuilt in the late 17C, is decorated with a huge Plateresque rose window and a Baroque doorway, with a tympanum that is the work of Francisco Herrera. Inside, the nave is huge, and in the first apse on the left is the tomb of the scholar Ramon Llull under a magnificent recumbent figure. The cloister, begun in 1286, is remarkably elegant: the arcades, meticulously carved into several foils, rest on clusters of small fragile columns.
